hair vs food

Tonight I watched two similar types of shows. The first, Shear Genius, is a challenge for hair stylists. The winner gets a new salon etc etc etc. The second show was The Next Food Network Star. The winner of this challenge gets his or her own Food Network show.

The hair stylists are really hard to like. A few seem like normal, nice people, but most are backstabbing, blame-everyone-else folks. The food people seem so much nicer. They even support each other.

I don't know if there is a lesson here about the differences in professions. And what about the other shows - Design Star, So You Think You Can Dance, uh...what others are there? Oh yes, Top Chef, another cook show that features some pretty ugly competition and huge egos at times, and Project Runway...yeah, no lesson to be learned. None.
