Come Dine with Me

Lately I have seen a t.v. show in the hospital staff room called Come Dine with Me. In this program, pretentious and arrogant people compete in preparing elaborate dinner parties for each other in order to win some prize money. During these dinner parties, they fall out and bitch about the quality of each other's cooking.

In an episode today, a hostess was barefoot and had shoes by the door. She probably did not wear shoes in her home, but had not asked for shoes-off.

Probably, given the arrogance of the people who seem to go on this show, asking the guests to remove their shoes would be a certain way to lose, as the guests score the host.

Probably, being me, I would ask the guests to remove their shoes regardless. And I think I would take great delight in making them play Twister.

I've caught a lot of that recently on Sunday nights. I can't fault your description of the programme, only add one contest feeatured the most frightful and up herself woman I can bear to imagine.

I have noticed "shoes off" being practiced on the very odd occasion, as indeed (and surprisingly) it only was on Britain's Best Homes, if you remember that. I've watched a few Wife Swaps too, but no examples spring readily to mind.

Yes, I feel it is most unlikely you would win, but I'm sure it would make for a great episode :)
