All these rescue chef shows are retarded because the stars are just bad teachers. They use this teaching method where they just say "don't do what you were doing, let me show you a whole new way". The lesson is not related at all to the student's experience, it's just a presentation of the "right way". That's a horrible way of teaching, but it's very common. People learn much faster if you work with the way they've already figured things out. The student is already trying to do it a certain way and has reasoned out thoughts on the subject. If you can look at what they're doing and go "okay, I see what you were going for, but here's what you did wrong.." or, "okay, I get your way of thinking about the problem, but actually you're missing this key point.." people learn much much faster if you do that.
