Bar Rescue is one of the most educational reality shows on television. For those of us who know nothing about running a bar, but enjoy the scene, Jon makes bar hopping even more enjoyable.
It was announced this week that Jon will be a part of a new Spike TV show alongside top chef John Besh entitled Hungry Investors,airing spring 2014, where failing restaurants compete to see if they deserve a second chance, and can prove themselves to potential investors. Not that all viewers are going to start their own bars and restaurants, everyone enjoys going out to eat and drink from time to time.
Shows like these allow consumers to be more appreciative of bar and restaurant owners and the people who work there. Taffer's no nonsense attitude allows business owners to be accountable for their businesses, while giving viewers an inside look at what it takes to keep bars and restaurants going. Unlike Gordon Ramsay, Taffer comes across much more genuine in his forceful suggestions, which makes him a great personality for these "rescue" type programs. We have our eye on Taffer as he continues to rescue our economy one drinking establishment at a time.
