What do I love more than an ice cold Diet Coke and a full TiVo queue of bad reality TV? When the reality contestants are accounting scrubs, obviously. I’ve ranked the following accounting reality stars based on courage, entertainment value, and actual talent. 7) The Award for Best Dating Show Contestant: Mara, Legal Accountant […]
Those of you waiting anxiously for The Bachelorette to return to ABC this month have one more reason to wait anxiously; a Big 4 associate will be all up in the mix looking for love: Season 10 of The Bachelorette is returning this Monday, May 19, on ABC, and if you're a fan of the looking-for-love […]
Apparently a post I wrote last week came off as though I was criticizing the former Deloitte grunt who found her real joy in porn. In fact, I was celebrating her awakening. She isn't the first industry refugee and she won't be the last. As many of you are chomping at the bit looking for […]
Look, you guys. I know the Big 4 isn't the most glamorous career you could possibly have and it's definitely not the ideal place to be showing off your finer physical attributes, but going on reality TV rarely falls into the category of good life decisions. I mean seriously, how bad do you need your […]
As perhaps some of you have heard me mention, I don't watch much TV. And I definitely don't watch reality TV, but Adrienne does keep up with the Kardashians and various other idiots who take residence inside the box, so I'm vaguely aware (but not really) of what goes on.

A taste of the June 6th premiere of The IRS (+) Hitman:
And if you think that’s interesting, there’s more:
Is there a complete sentence in there somewhere? Try the next one.
You hear that? How can you live with yourselves IRS? Stealing money from this Jonas Brothers wannabe family that won’t be able to stand around the kitchen eating cheese whiz out of the jar with their hands! No mercy indeed. If you have an IRS injustice story, you better get in touch with this Hitman character.
From what we can tell, the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award is a BFD. If the other Big 4 have their own versions of this award, we sure haven’t heard of them.
And even if Deloitte were to start handing out the Uncle Dangle Vigilante of the Year award, it would pale in comparison to the EYEY because, now, a past winner is going to be on The Real Housewives of New York City.
Jennifer Gilbert won her EYEY in 1998 for her business, Save the Date, “A dedicated force of event planners who are in tune with the constantly evolving world of corporate events.” She’s even in the EYEY Hall of Fame. Jesus, this thing has a HoF?
J Dawg has to be bursting over this. Shamelessly up on his desk fist pumping, Tiger Woods style. A soon-to-be reality TV star that, God willing, will name drop E&Y every chance she gets on cable would be the best thing that ever happened to the firm. Sorry, NASCAR HoF.
