I've been tired of Buddy and his arrogance.

I turned on the show for a second just to see how lame it would be. I was right. My DH's comment was that the finalists on the Next Food Network Star were much better. Buddy should really stick to the Cake Boss show, that's his element. He's not a chef.

I think TLC is just trying to milk Buddy's current fame for all it is worth. I'd be wary if I were Buddy. Remember Emeril Lagasse? 10 years ago he was EVERYWHERE. Where is he now? Back in his restaurants making good food, I am sure, but not all over TV.

I hope he is banking the money, because I am tired of him and he may not last more than a couple more years. Just my opinion! icon_smile.gif

Before the show, that bakery made enough to support all of those family members in a very comfortable, upper income, lifestyle. Buddy doesn't need TLC, TLC needs Buddy. They have so much business that they are moving production to a 25,000 sf warehouse. If you listen carefully and read his book, he is a brilliant businessman. Because I own a bakery, I listen closely when he gives his bits of advice. He is all business, not a dreamer. If you are a scratch baker and attempt his recipes in his book, you will find that he is a great baker. And the recipes on his show, Kitchen Boss, represent simple, everyday, italian cooking. I don't care how much drama is in the show... that's how they shoot reality tv... there are lessons to be learned.

Ditto ....

I think we should all take notes, and find out how we can get a TV show. Don't hate Buddy; do any of you guys have a TV show ????

You tell'em scp1127

I don't think anyone said they hated Buddy, just tired of his style. As far as his bakery - I think it's great and say good for him. icon_smile.gif

I don't like the drama either. In the book he talks about how they shoot for days and only air the drama, not a true picture. Out of all the shows, Buddy is the only one that actually gives business advice.

I have his book also and he is a very astute business man...scp1127 is right ..they are doing well...enough to support all the family that works there and they all live in pretty nice looking homes....I'd love to be able to have a business like that where my kids/family could work with me etc...When the business does well they all reep the benefits...and like others have said...Carlos was doing fine before TLC came along...

Believe it or not, I JUST saw Buddy for the first time the other day. (We don't have cable anymore, so I just see things on the internet.) I could see how he could get old pretty quickly. Interesting to hear that he's an excellent businessman though. Good for him! I wish more of us could make a living doing what we love with cake!

I do. I work 5 days a week with my two bothers, my dad and my uncle.

As far as Buddy goes, he may be a great business man, but I don't care for his show, Cake Boss. I haven't seen the other, so I can't say much about it. But the few times I saw Cake Boss it just seemed scripted to me. That doesn't mean I don't like him, I just don't like the show.

I also don't watch Ace of Cakes for the same reason.
