On the next Undercover Boss, Harlan Kent, President and CEO of Yankee Candle, puts his mission in jeopardy when he displays an unusual knack for the job.
"[Making wax molds] is a really awkward, time-consuming process, so he's going to suck at this," says Harlan's supervisor, who later ate his words when Harlan accomplished the task with the confidence of someone who "already knows what to do."
"I can't put my finger on what's going on," the supervisor says, growing suspicious. "But things just don't seem to be fitting together naturally. He seems too good at the situation."
Watch Undercover Boss Friday, March 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
