My favourite thing about Hotel Hell is how Gordon almost always tries to connect with the hotel’s kitchen staff first, because it’s rare for a hotel’s owner to know anything about the kitchen. As a result, they’re likely to be the staff that suffers the most, and thus have the most insight.
“We’ve never seen anything like Terrace House. It’s just some young people, living together, sometimes going on dates, often, but not always, with one another. I think that’s only part of the story, though. And that there are some things about Terrace House which are quietly VERY effective, and also say LOTS about a potential future for the place of audience in media. That potential future has something to do with Let’s Plays, but… we’re gonna work our way there.”
