I can't understand why these places allow these 'reality' shows to be filmed at their restaurants, especially when contestants react like that mullethead! I do NOT watch this Amazing Race thing, but my wife is thoroughly addicted. She reported that on the previous series of this show where they went to a 4* Hungarian restaurant in Budapest where they had to eat some spicy soup and some dumb arse was spitting and barfing this stuff up like it was Drano or something. I asked if it was some 'special' over-seasoned concoction to nauseate the competitors, but, apparently, no, it's just their house special paprika-laced soup! I can see why these restaurants might view this opportunity as 'any exposure is good exposure' but, c'mon, it can not be good when folks are gagging on your house specialty!!!
My wife also watches that other reality show where they merrily chow down on maggots, pig rectums, mealworms etc, but these are people eating items right off the menu of well-known and respected international restaurants and acting like doofuses (doofi, in the plural?). Plus that Amazing Race has to be the greatest commercial to help push and promote Americans as the most ignorant, self-centered, beligerent, obnoxious nationality on the planet. No respect for other cultures and people as they barnstorm across the earth in quest of the almighty dollar... I think it's horrid.
Well, now that I've got that off my chest... what's for dinner? LOL
