Reality show ‘Undercover Boss’ will feature MGM Grand executive

MGM Grand President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Sibella is going undercover as a frontline employee at his property for a CBS reality show.

Sibella will appear on the network’s “Undercover Boss” television show Sunday disguised as a dealer and guests services representative at MGM Grand.

A preview of the episode shows Sibella being scolded by another dealer for putting his hands in his pockets and casino patrons guiding the MGM Grand president as he deals cards.

“This was one of the most important and rewarding things I’ve done in my career,” Sibella said. “I learned so much about our employees, and the experience will make me a better leader for our team.”

“Undercover Boss” follows a different executive each week as they try out lower-level jobs at their companies. The show has previously followed executives from 7-11, Subway and NASCAR.

The episode featuring Sibella will air at 9 p.m. Sunday.

  1. Chunky says:

    Hopefully he got an earful and insight. Murren ought to do this too!

    Few of the executives at the casinos these days have an ounce of hospitality experience much less time on the casino floor.

    That's what Chunky thinks!

  2. Chunky, Murren would never stoop to something this far beneath him. He's too much of a star!

  3. These shows are all scripted. They only do these shows for the free publicity.

  4. Scott wasn't the MGM exec that needed to do Undercover Boss. Bill McBeath is the one that needed it. I've never seen an exec and I've seen a lot, that was so arrogant and looked upon his employees as serfs.

    Sibella was always one of the better execs with the employees. I think he was a dealer before too.

  5. The word is renege.

    * break promise: to go back on a promise or commitment.

  6. "Reality T.V." is a misnomer.

    It is always scripted and heavily edited.
