Look, this show is totally stupid and pointless, I was quite aware of that fact when I set my DVR to record it. However, in some ways it is sort of endearing. While I hate when Bobby Flay travels around and throws down with people who claim to be the best in their fields, somehow it doesn't bother me when Shaq does it. Maybe it is because Flay actually has a shot of winning, and Shaq clearly doesn't. We know it, he knows it, the competitors know it. Or maybe it's just because Bobby is threatening the livelihoods of ordinary working class folks while Shaq is facing off against celebrities.
