i don't know. He is arrogant yes, and he is confrontational. But often times in his show (especially the UK ones) he is very fair and constructive. I find he's only ever a real asshole to people who warrant it. Some people just don't react well to criticism.
Either way, he is entertaining as hell.
As for restautant makeover, i often wonder why people would go on that show. I saw that Grapefruit Moon episode the first thing i wondered was why on earth she even went on the show when her sence of style and decor was so drastically unique. I could see it helping a few places that desperately need it (that Tara Inn place in Scarborough for one), but at the same time, some of the owners should consider other options to revamp their businesses. you are totally right though, in that the result of the makeover usually lacks soul and personality.
