    Disgusting. I've enjoyed most of the shows but this guy was a pervert. I thought it was wrong for him to fire the bartender and not give her a second chance. He didn't like his experience with her and she was just being honest about not liking working there. He didn't give her a second chance. Instead another girl was his "bikini babe" who had made mistakes but he gave her option to get a boob job. Really? What boss does that? Totally disgusting! No wonder he's not married and is a playboy. Noticed in one part of the show a picture he had a picture of Hugh Hefner on the wall. This place is worse than Hooters. Surprised CBS ran this episode. He could easily be brought up on charges. Normally this is a heart warming show this was the worst.
  • Undercover Boss is off my watch list!

    Too many shows to choose from to continue watching this show. After the Bikinis episode the "Under Cover" concept has been lost in the true reason why these bosses are going undercover. Must be running out of valid companies to have bosses go under cover. In my book, Undercover Boss has been cancelled.
  • Bikini BOOB Boss

    1.0
    We've watched Undercover Boss since the beginning and were TOTALLY DISGUSTED with the airing of the BIKINIS show! The CBS management team has reached an all time new LOW by allowing the airing of this episode. I don't care if that sicko CEO did take time 'out of his busy schedule' to work through the undercover process; this CEO and his sexist attitude demonstrated absolutely NO RESPECT to females. By airing his repeated 'BREASTaurant' comments, CBS promoted his view of women as 'objects' & not thinking, viable individuals.



    I hope the fired bartender takes action, hires a lawyer & files a defamation of character suit against the CEO. A priceless, teachable opportunity was missed when the CEO DID NOT take action & implement a training program for ALL corporate guidelines for when to stop serving.



    As for 'offering' to pay for a boob WHAT A to mention the waitress who was willing to jump with . She really is a sad case as well.



    The show has aired and millions have seen it. The initial damage has been done. I can only hope that three things might yet be forthcoming:



    1. CBS will air a public apology in multiple venues (on air/newspaper ads/social media posts) for their poor judgment in airing such stupidity.



    2. CBS will STOP this episode from ever airing again as a rerun.



    3. CBS will be more conscientious when airing any further episodes of Undercover Boss. It is not the business that was as offensive as the pompous CEO who obviously believes he is a gift to all mankind! The HOOTERS episode demonstrated a respect for its female employees. Sadly, this jerk did not! BIKINIS really is a CLASSLESS Hooters.

    How dumb are these employees that they never question all the cameras and sound equipment that come with this new "employee" as he/she learns their new job?



    The fact that this show has lasted so long is a testament to the fact that the average television viewer can be easily brainwashed.

    This was THEE WORSE show you have ever recorded!!! The CEO is a sick man who really doesnt care about FOOD, only about the Breast's of women getting business into his bar!



    Bikini's CEO shows mental issues of his personal life. He's probably dating the girl he BOUGHT Breast Implants for? Geez, absolutely the WORSE show you have ever showcased!!



    This family will be cautious from now on of your shows!!!! =(
  • The worst ever!!!! Bikinis bar and grill

    1.0
    In our household we look forward to watching this show. I am very disappointed that the producers actually allowed this episode to air.



    The CEO for Bikinis bar and grill was horrible. First offering to help one of his employees to get bigger boobies!!! Does he know what health hazards are caused by this type of procedure. encapsulation of the breast and hardening of the breast, yet he was concerned over the customer who was drinking too much?



    Then firing an employee and offering to send her resume to other prospective employers, is he kidding? I could not believe that he was allowed to do this? I will not be surprised if the x-employee get an attorney to possibly sue him!



    I hope that the producers will not show this again, I really want to continue to watch this program with the positive CEO that mentor and help employees to be part of their team.

  • Furious with Bikini's

    1.0
    The CEO & Founder of Bikini's is such a sexist. I used to love Undercover Boss but this episode was completely disgusting. He just doesn't get it. The woman who was fired for not wearing the bikini top & for continuing to serve a man who probably drank too much to drink was not being fair. She could have been counseled and given another chance. But no, what he really didn't like about her was her lack of passion for his "breastaurant". I found the term very offense. So, he fired her. That's his business but I bet many viewers didn't agree. I wouldn't want a daughter of mine to make a career of working at that joint. He didn't even have medical insurance for his Managers. I'm glad he gave it to that one woman but just her? His reward for that Bikini Babe" manager was to pay for the care her daughter needs. She should have had medical insurance for his manager in the first place. What a jerk! Gee, I'd be thrilled to have a breast enlargement surgery instead of a monetary reward for working at a job. I do suppose the CEO thinks of himself as a Hugh Hefner of sports bars. Why didn't CBS consider how offense this episode is to many women before the try aired it. This show had taken a dive!

    Start with the best, the cook, who was awesome. Got what he deserved, money and back pay. Girl getting fired because she didn't want to be on camera being filmed. Yes, over served, but no second chance. Next, girl getting rewarded for next 6 months of not being on phone by getting fake boobs, really? And last, but not least, the most disgusting, the manager, not having health insurance until he activated it until "4 days prior" to her meeting him. What a disgusting CEO Doug Fuller is. No wonder his restaurants are empty.

    The bikini babe show was awful. This CEO needs a reality check as he was looking for servers who wanted a lifetime career there. I am not sure how may women appreciate working at age 70, waiting for social security still serving in bikinis. Unless the benefits for working there are so good they can retire early. Also, the one young lady was promoted to bartender and is working her way to a bigger bikini. What does that mean? Is a bigger bikini what there is in life? This is a job for people working through college for a BETTER, REAL career. Horrible show. This CEO demeans women.
  • UNDER COVER BOSS - NEW LOW!!! Bikini sports bar

    1.0
    After watching the episode of Under Cover Boss, I know I will never patronize Bikinis bar and grill. This is a very LOW LOW for Under COVER BOSS. I love their programs but felt this is NOT what I expect to see when watching this program. Bikini's CEO is a sexist pig and I hope to that their establishments continue to loose business. To buy a girl bigger boobs if she does well in her job is just trashy TV and Trashy business. As a Male business manger I would consider this violation of sexual harassment laws for a manger to be buying a subordinate new boobs! And great accolades to the girl he fired for not showing it all on TV, she did the right thing walking out on the CEO and the show UNDER COVER BOSS. I'm sure she is doing a lot better where ever she lands, and if I could hire her I would she is a lot better person than the CEO ever will be!
  • bikini sports bar bad CEO

    1.0
    The CEO of the Bikini Sports Bar is an asshole. He used an unfair means to get information which he used to fire an employee. She only confided in him because she thought he was a regular employee. I hope that other people see this and realize what an asshole he is. I have been a waiter, bartender, manager, and other positions in the service industry. When I saw the show Undercover Boss about the Bikini Sports Bar it made me very angry. He didn't even try to apologize for ruining that girl's life. And he should have had it made clear that he expected the same dress code during the TV broadcast. He seemed surprised that she didn't want to wear the bikini top on TV--but then, many women probably have a hard time wearing that uniform everyday. They just deal with it because it is expected for the job. However, when they start work there, they don't automatically agree to wear that same outfit on TV! Did he EVEN think about that? I would really like to know. If there was a Bikini Sports Bar in Chicago, I would go in there and tell them that in person. Trainerjim22

  • A Company and a Location for Review for Undercover Boss!

    needs someone to go on Undercover Boss at the North Las Vegas, NV warehouse.

    I've been there for 5 years; seeing it change from an Outbound/Inbound Facility, to a Customer Returns Center. Things are not good, management has no idea what we workers have to deal with. They make policies without even talking to "the people who do the jobs" , we know what works and what doesn't, and all they do is to find new ways to "write us up"!

    I have 2 Bachelor's Degrees, 2 minors and Massage Therapy School, management doesn't care; They don't care HOW LONG YOU HAVE WORKED FOR THE COMPANY", NO SENIORITY!

    I have trained dozens of people, and then, I watch them get the good jobs, increase in pay, and more responsibility. To have your manager tell you they will not support me getting a Processing Assistant Tier 3 position!! I'm stuck in processing HELL, I hear others talk about "how to cheat to get the best rates. I LIVE MY LIFE BY THE "RULES", WHILE EVERYONE ELSE CHEATS!

    NO THANKSGIVING LUNCH THIS YEAR, FOR SOME IT MAY HAVE BEEN THE ONLY MEAL THAT DAY, BUT NOW, NOTHING! I'M SURE CHRISTMAS WILL BE THE SAME!

    No increase in pay for Cost of Living" I have reached the cap of pay, when:

    Rent goes up

    Utilities go up

    Food cost goes up

    Gas prices go up

    I thought that I had a way to move up; There is no one in Upper Management is not going to let that happen.

    EVER DAY FOR THE PAST YEAR I GO TO WORK TERRIFIED THAT I WILL BE LET GO! I NEED THIS JOB, I work hard everyday, I GET 3 BREAKS IN THE 10 HOUR SHIFT, 1ST BREAK 9:30AM, I GET TO GO TO THE BATHROOM; LUNCH AT 12:30 IS BATHROOM #2; THEN LAST BREAK AT 3:30 and the last BATHROOM BREAK!! I don't stop to walk around and talk to others. I'm there to work, to do a job, that I feel proud of doing.

    MORALE REALLY SUCKS AT THIS WAREHOUSE! IT'S EVERY PERSON FOR THEMSELVES-THERE IS NO TEAM WORK!

    WHEN I STARTED 5 YEARS AGO, NO ONE IN MANAGEMENT IS STILL HERE 5 YEARS LATER. There is so much more about this company that needs a lot of help, we are not happy. makes millions from our blood, sweat and tears; BUT THEY DON'T CARE HOW MANY YEARS OF DEDICATION YOU HAVE PUT IN, HOW HARD YOU WORK-THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT RATE AND MAKING US GO FASTER AND FASTER!! Please help, the Holiday Season is approaching, time for more millions of dollars to be made-We can't complain, we are all expendable.

    Another one of CBS' yeasty Reality TV shows once again proves the old adage, "The Road To Hell Is Paved With Good Intentions". Undercover Boss is a show about how CEO's of certain companies decide to be in disguise as a mere employee of their company just to see how things fare for them.



    This is by far, one of the flimsiest of premises for a Reality TV show. A rueful attempt for us to feel even the slightest concern on just how those bigwigs can relate to their wage slaves on an even keel.



    What a colossal waste of airtime.

    personally i like the show and concept, however sending in the CEO sometimes isnt the BEST idea, i do think that someone in the corporate offices should work on the ground floor. i work for Pizza Ranch the store owner is failing and corporate seems to not care where there are employees working hard up here to pull our boss' head out of his rear about the place. we need some intervention from the higher ups and just see why we are failing.

    how can i nominate Pizza Ranch to go undercover?

    Since the crash of 08' people do not trust corporations or Wall Street and what a nice way to show companies" have a heart" than this show. The CEO or COO go undercover to show that they are trying to see the company, from the "johnny paychecks" world view. Give me a break! All companies care about is profits, and their brand image. The Boston Market episode illustrates that brainwashed idea about brand, if I heard the director of marketing say it once; I heard it 10 more times. This show is an hour long jerk fest, to build brand recognition and to make customers think that companies A, B and C really care about them and now they care about their employees too. Wrong, companies care about your money and your willingness to return. Can't you feel the phoney sweetness when you go into some businesses? One of the largest fixed cost of a business is payroll and if they could get people to work for nothing or, better yet, get programmable androids to do the work they would be tickled pink. So please understand this, if change is what employees want, the only changes that will be made are 1. Changes that don't really cost any money and don't negatively impact the bottom line 2. Or changes that only positively affect the bottom line (like the investment made in this show and the prize

    I like the show. I like the concept. I like the idea of modeling concern, support and philanthropy. Sometimes, though, greater efficiency would speak volumes about how customers and the surrounding community are valued. Someone should look at the Safeway grocery chain. There is no consistency in the way the neighborhoods it serves are treated. Spoiled or about-to-spoil meat is moved to stores in poorer communities. With luck, a clerk might hip a customer about what to avoid. Some areas are better stocked, are cleaner and staff better trained than others. There is a training store at Georgia Avenue and Piney Branch Road in NW Washington, DC - an area where home prices are$300,000 and up. There are a lot of problems and neighborhood support is waning, especially among those with the wherewithal to go elsewhere. With Harris Teeter, Weis and Wegman's moving into the area, along with lower-cost chains like Food Lion and Aldi, the company is not responding well to competition. At the store referenced above, there are a lot of seniors in that community with no transportation and few options. It sure could use another pair of eyes and some course correction.

    I was intrigued with Undercover Boss by it's trailers at the time. But then I watched a few episodes, gave it some chances to come around, it never changed, and it's boring, biased altogether I'm completely turned off by. It's staged!! How is it so coincidental that the boss goes undercover touching those coincendental, certain minisculed hardshipped indviduals on the front line from the handful of others just as bad off within such large organizations; unless, the show's producers aren't working in unison already with voluntary corporate American CEO's of pre-selecting the cast to prop up as so wholesome?

    I loved the episode. I just want Miguel to know that he has been told the biggest lie of all time, that all men have been told generation after generation. A REAL MAN DOES CRY, MIGUEL.

    So many reality shows are just fluff, anger & silliness. This show was not at all what I was expecting,

    Just another reality show. This show teaches so many things, among them humbleness, thankfulness,

    tears of joy & hope for the future! It is such a good show, that each episode leaves me thinking, that episode was my favorite, until you watch the next episode, Then I'm saying,Maybe that's my favorite? I've come to the conclusion that the whole show is, My Favorite. Watch a couple episodes & I'm thinking it will be your favorite too!

    Terrible cooperate office/upper management

    Clinical Manager/Director of Nursing (Former Employee), manyland June 6, 2013

    Cons: nurses, and managers are not getting their breaks. unsafe working conditions.

    This is the leading Dialysis company. As we all know with bundle and condition of coverage, many policies had changed to correlate the condition of coverage. Upper management and cooperate office they fail to understand that patient population life expectancy has changed too. That have been said, it means our nurses on the clinical area, are seeing patients who are older, sicker and have multiple co-morbid conditions than ever before. People who are in upper management when held low position long time ago, this were very different. Patient education was not reinforced as it is today, no epogen was given, no foot checks, patients assessment pre and post were different, kt/v, hgb , Bicarb, missed tx,pt's death,ect . Nurses did not use there stethoscope to evaluate patients. Many changes have take place, and many rules have been reinforced since the condition of coverage. State need to look into a nurse patient ratio for dialysis nurses. With today economy MBA's are using nurses and technician to work on unsafe conditions, and expect the best results. Less work was done for the safe amount of time, where now their are so many tasks involved with less time and more stress. The company does not care about how the work is done. As far as it is done... TAP... I understand productivity is the major part of today economy, however nurses can not do what they are asked to do on the time they taking care of very sick patients. TAP for state who have the ratio of 5:1, 4:1, and 3:1 is the same... how crazy is that. Cooperate office is aware of this, and the answer is," you guys who are doing 3:1 ratio, you have set up for a failure before you turn the light on in am to start up your this is one of TAP people in cooperate office lectures. Something has to give, which is patient care... which the company pretend to care about. It will be nice for cooperate to listen to the employee's who are working on the front line, or make a visit to different clinics to see how the work is safely done. Try to have undercover boss to see how clinical area unsafely run, or how managers, SW, RD, Technicians, are running with their heads cut off... Clinical documentation is poor/missed, or omitted because of rushing to complete the task and get out of the clock. What is happen Every week there is a new task to be completed... Web they fail to understand is patient care is in jeopardy... Company making enough profits to make changes to create safe working conditions. less

    This is Wordy the read! Glad to see a CM comment that truly understands what RNs do on the front lines in the facility!! Can't believe any CM with morals would want to stay with this company. I could never be a CM with this work people like dogs and don't care about their Unto Others! Keep this in mind as you are reading this to set the tone: Our unit has 90ish some patients total with no charge RN, high acuity of lot of w/c patients w/lots of co-morbids. 24 stations (first large unit=poor, rushed care), two full shifts, M-Sat clinic, starting time 6 am to 3:30 to 4 pm. Sometimes if we are "down in patients" our CM makes us decide which RN goes home of the outstanding work there is to do. There is always work left for the next day, so the RN starting out the next day is already behind the 8-ball because she not only has to finish up the work from the previous day but try to address the issues on her shift also. Two RNs work daily on the floor. We do a third check on all the patients . goals, Rx, bath, pass meds, pass protein supplements because they won't let the PCTs administer them, address acute problems with pts (and this may be quick or time-consuming), then sit down at ecube to check orders, lab alerts, update med checks and this is done monthly (in which our Medical Director always complains aren't done, but we can only be as good as the pts compliance with this in bringing their meds Also, we have quite a few nursing home pts and it takes time to review their MARs and make changes to ecube. We monitor PT/INRs, Dilantin/Dig levels, Vanco troughs, Gent troughs, and any other levels they want monitored (we do the PT/INRS, Dig/Dilantin levels as a courtesy! The cardiologist/neurologist will do it but we just do it because we're nice!..... isn't that we don't have ENOUGH TO DO!) ( I really think the Medical Director doesn't get the drift of all we do Then there are about 17 CIAs to work on for the month (with 3 RNs because one RN quit) in addition to a copious amount of foot checks because this is a large unit and 90% are diabetic. This is only "some" of the paperwork that we have to do! Also, 5-6 chart audits per month. We also do monthly medical justifications paperwork, access flow monitoring paperwork with appts scheduled at our access center for acute problems with access or poor access flow outcomes, in addition to completing the referral paperwork for that and faxing it. New patient education which we are to sign off saying we discussed cath care, infection control, emergency take-off, diet, etc with the patient which gets done haphazard because we don't have time. We also do scheduling for CTs having to do pre-authorizations at times with those. With no charge RN, we have to check on hospital discharges daily and obtain new orders from physicians or when the patient comes back they can't be put on the machine, sign consents with new admits and get them settled in. Schedule pts for blood transfusions at the local hospital (we have a few that are chronic Plus, get antibiotics hung at the correct time on the patients during their course of treatment during all the chaos and interruptions. We also pass Midodrine if it is ordered on patients mid-treatment, so we have to remember that also. Also, if a PCT yells at you which happens a lot if you don't have experienced staff, we have to be at their whim. They also yell out at you during changeover to "call the taxi, call the nursing home", etc. for the pt to be picked up. (They are stressed out too!) We have to correct problems with validation from the day before which sometimes aren't an "easy fix" and take some thought. At the end of the day we have to reschedule pt labs that weren't obtained from the PCTs for some reason, peel off stickers from the tubes and re-label them, that is, if our Zebra printer is working. And in a large unit, around MB time, there can be at least a dozen pres/post BUNs to reschedule/re-label and this is an ongoing thing until near the end of the month. We are constantly rescheduling labs/re-labeling tubes for no shows or missed d/t hospitalizations. Also, keep logs updated daily . water, temp logs, infection blood culture logs, rounding tool, hospitalization log, missed treatment log, extra treatment log, med expiration log-monthly, In addition, assist the PCTs on the floor during changeover by setting up machines, washing chairs, taking the pts to the BR, weighing assist patient d/t prolonged bleeding. All this and getting "nurse phone calls" ranging anywhere from "what time does my mom get off!" to "I am not coming in for dialysis today" to "I am from another local clinic and having problems what should I do?" to "I have an order to use an access, should I fax it or send it with the patient?" to "Could you fax HD orders with Hep B profile results to the hospital?" to I" want to discuss my mom's meds" to personal phone calls for the staff. We also do transplant referrals now because our social worker no longer does them. We also do potassium bath adjustments on every patient once monthly labs have been resulted as our medical director has established an algorithm for this and we also adjust biweekly per algorithm. Potassium bath adjustments are VERY, VERY time-consuming in itself on this many patients. It is VERY..... VERY difficult to get all of the paperwork done with everything that is required of the RN. All of this paperwork is very time consuming and with no charge RN what ends up happening is: First and foremost..... 1. The pts don't get the care they deserve! 2 .The quality of the paperwork and documentation is very poor because it is rushed, then our manager is critiquing it and asking why this, this and this wasn't done! 3. Poor morale, negativity, backbiting and high turnover because when the nurses sit down to actually do paperwork they must not "be busy" so they can take a patient to the BR that just happens to have to go. 4. Errors with orders, bath changes, antibiotic/trough order entrys, etc. because we get sooo many interruptions on the floor when we are trying to concentrate that it's not funny! I have to physically clock out and leave the building if I want an uninterrupted break, otherwise I get called to the floor all the time and never get an interrupted lunch! When is this company gonna wake up! Can't have a charge RN until we have at least 100 patients and maintain that amt for a while But instead of management understanding these things, they just push,,,,,push,,,,,,push...... and "it better be done and done with quality so you can get out the door!" Well, it will be done NOT with quality! We definitely need to do Undercover Boss! I would love to just keep pushing work at the ! ... and on and on it goes...

    I absolutely love your show. The only thing that bothers me is that during the show you constantly give previews of what's coming up. I would really like to be surprised at the end along with the employees. It just takes away from the whole show. Thanks :)
