Hi, it's a long time since you posted this but as you've no other replies I thought I'd shove my oar in anyway.
These incidents are pre-arranged with the restaurant proprietors, scripted and the restaurant is paid for its participation.
Probably the proprietor in question was fed-up with the length of time and re-running of the activity until the producer was satisfied with the way it would look on television.
