Kids say: Not yet rated

The drama of this predictable reality series is usually centered on Frankel herself, who seems intent on revealing what working for a really difficult, unpleasant boss can be like. An as the contestants vie for what's made out to be a prestigious position, they argue, make mistakes, and get spectacularly rejected.

Frankel isn't interested in mentoring the contestants and often heckles them for their mistakes or lack of experience. While much of this appears to be for viewers' benefit, some of Frankel's antics cross the line, like insulting a Latinx candidate for her accent and grammar. The Big Shot with Bethenny might satisfy folks who enjoy this genre, but others may just find the whole thing offensive.
