it's finally on the air!
the exact title of the show is food paradise, "hot & spicy paradise 2." sounds kind of porntastic, i know. but hey, RATINGS! and a quick scan of my directv guide tells me that it's set to air again this sunday at 4:00 PST. you know, if you were interested in tuning in or anything. i might also drop that you can zone out for approximately 3/4 of the show, unless you actually care about the parts that i'm not in. the teen and i watched it via directv's on demand feature on my phone. i'm not gonna lie, i didn't want to wait to check it out. i was half excited and half cringing at what we might see. heh.
MIL got herself some pretty good screen time, although she more than deserved it after enduring the pain that is their 50-alarm burger. if you recall, she had to don protective gloves and sign a waiver before they'd even serve her the damn thing. she's such a good sport.
the thing was so hot, it brought her to tears. she had to be super careful so as not to get any of that peppery crap in her eyes. that would not have made for great tv at all.
i managed to snag a little airtime too. burning my entire mouth while eating that sriracha burger was totally worth my 2.75 seconds of national broadcast television footage.
while the teen breathed a sigh of relief at her own footage seemingly landing on the cutting-room floor, a little digging on the travel channel website told me otherwise. they didn't keep any of her actually speaking on-camera, but if you watch this apparently online-only clip...well, you just might catch a fleeting glimpse of my fabulous firstborn.
