Undercover Boss has had its share of tender moments (and not-so-tender moments) but this scene between Modell’s Sporting Goods employee Angel and its CEO, Mitchell Modell is about as emotional as reality TV gets. After all, when you’ve paired up a millionaire and a woman who is currently homeless, how could things not get raw?
Homelessness is often looked upon as something that only happens to people who “deserve” it. America’s obsession with hard work has shaped our views of this unfortunate symptom of society but the truth is, it can happen to just about anyone and it’s rarely got anything to do with how hard someone works. Angel is proof of that, and we’re thankful she and her children now have a place to call home.
