Karri-Leigh Mastrangelo is a reality show producer whose credits include "Ready For Love," "Cheerleader Nation" and one of the most popular reality franchises "The Bachelor."
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.
In last week's episode of Tabatha Takes Over, Tabatha met a business owner who couldn't understand why her Hollywood nail salon was failing. Customers came in but they never came back. Why?
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.
There are TV competition shows that look for the next great dancer, baker, pop star and fashion designer. But the folks at Discovery Channel wanted to set their sights a little higher. They're looking for America's next great mind in the field of science, technology, engineering or math.
There's something magical about a treehouse. Tucked inside the protective arms of Mother Nature, high above the Earth's floor, they provide sanctuary from parental interference and fodder for the imagination. It may look like a wooden box on stilts from the outside, but from the inside it's a pirate ship, a rocket or a medieval castle.
Every year, thousands of dancers from all around the nation line up to audition for the Fox series, So You Think You Can Dance. Their ultimate goal? To get "hired" as one of the season's top 20 dancers. Each performer only has a few minutes to impress the judges not only with their talent but with their personality. If they succeed, they move on to the second round (Vegas). From there, it's like a probationary period where everything they do is under scrutiny and in the end, only the very best get the job.
At the Winter X Games, snowboarders and snowmobilers perform gravity defying stunts on steep slopes of ice and snow. The only thing more amazing than pulling off a cab cork 1080 indy to a frontside 900 is turning a mountain full of snow into an awesome competition course in just a few days.
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?
If you think your boss makes you jump through hoops every day, you need to watch tonight's episode of the ABC game show Wipeout. It's a special Boss & Employee edition with a twist. In the first round, the teams will have to work together to make it through obstacles such as Cuckoo Crazy and the Wipeout Break Room. From there, they'll have to conquer the Miami Pound Machine and the last couples standing will head off to the nerd-infested IT City.
Hidden camera shows have been around since Allen Funt began pulling pranks on TV back in 1948. "Smile, you're on Candid Camera!" In recent years, hidden camera shows haven't given people much to smile about as they're generally used to catch employees doing bad things behind the boss' back.
