TLDR

How down in the dumps would you have to be to agree to check in while the show is being filmed?

What it's about

Hospitality workers scratch and claw amongst themselves trying to impress head-honcho Lisa Vanderpump and every guest that checks in to the chateau of luxury.

The take

There are maybe 3 likable, level-headed cast members in a sea of instigators and neutrals in this trashy reality show. Combustible elements everywhere, fighting in front of the guests on episode 1, egos and exes trying to work together, and of course the most insecure and inept ones get the most TV time. They tell you that working for Lisa is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and while she provides order to the chaos with her caring principal energy, they don’t really bother to fill you in on who she is. Within the confines of the show, she's an accomplished professional trying to run a business, so she hired staff through a reality show full of copy-paste people who are nothing without conflict.

What stands out

And I absolutely love it. Man, do those cliffhangers work. When your life gets quiet, you can't help but wonder who gets humbled next.
