Wouldn't it be interesting if they did a cruise ship Top Chef/Apprentice? Say one of the majors underwrites the show and they bring in the contestants for a 10 day cruise. Each day one gets bumped off and the winner gets a work contract.
Since the contestants would be limited to food stocks on-board, it sort of levels the playing field and I bet there would be some creative use of ingredients in order for one chef to out-do the other(s).
With today's big ships having so much variety in food venues, the producers of the show could go from fine dining (spec. restaurants) to mass meals (main dining rooms) to room service to mass buffets. Plus, since it's a ship, breakfast would be covered as well!!!
I think it would also be interesting for the general viewer (plus us cruise addicts) to see more of the limitations these professionals go through when preparing our meals.
The cruise line that sponsors such a show would get a ton of free publicity plus - maybe - some awesome new recipes to boot.
