Last week on Does Someone Have to Go, the employees of True Home Value were faced with three tough decisions including whether or not to fire an employee with a drinking problem. This week, three employees had to stand in front of their peers and plead to keep their jobs. Time to see how it all turned out.
The Fox TV show Does Someone Have to Go broke new ground this week with their visit to True Home Value in Saint Louis. Larry Smith bought the mom and pop biz eight years ago and at first the business showed tremendous growth. The company sells large home improvement projects such as decks and new windows and they do it with a team of canvassers on the ground and telemarketers in the office.
Last week on Does Someone Have to Go, we met the employees of DFX. The 30-year-old fitness equipment company has been having a hard time since founder Tom sold the company to his daughter Farren. Why? Mostly because Tom stayed on, micromanaging every employee with the help of surveillance cameras.
DFX of Anaheim, California made its money with the patented Dynaflex Gyro fitness system. Tom started the company out of his garage back in the seventies, built it up to a successful business, and then sold the business to his daughter Farren so he could retire.
Last week on Does Someone Have to Go, we watched as the employees of Velocity Merchant Services roasted their co-workers in candid videos. That was followed by a mortifying round where salaries were revealed and from there, the group chose the three employees they thought deserved to be fired. Can the bottom three redeem themselves?
When you lose on a TV game show, all you give up is a little bit of dignity. But when you lose on Fox's new reality series Does Someone Have to Go, the next stop is the unemployment line. To make matters worse, the pink slip doesn't come from the boss, it comes from the co-workers. Think a group of grown adults can make a rational business decision without it turning into a popularity contest? No way and that's why Fox thinks they have a hit on their hands.
