    I’m thinking there should be a training course for NFNS contestants. Like, maybe have someone follow you around 24 hours / day with a tv camera, taping everything you do all day for 6 weeks?

    Then do it for a second 6 weeks while constantly smiling, juggling, chewing gum and catering three meals for 30 people each day with one pot, a spoon and a bic lighter.

    With one hand tied behind your back. In full hair and make-up. lol
