Okay, I’ll just come out upfront and admit it. I have bizarre food issues. I eat like a 4-year-old child. I eat beef, pork, chicken, and turkey, and refuse to go beyond that into eating any other animals. It’s just … icky. Also, I can’t eat an animal I once saw alive, even if it would fall into beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. Once the association is there with an animal, I just can’t get past it. Additionally, I don’t eat many vegetables, because … many of them taste like dirt. Other than broccoli. That just tastes like it smells – like stinky feet.
I wouldn’t last five minutes into an adventure with Andrew Zimmern. His advice is always the same, “If it looks good, eat it!” Well, none of it looks good to me, quite frankly. Zimmern, the host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods America, wants to know what his fans think is bizarre. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want to hear about my weird food issues, but he wants to know what you think is bizarre … but would be willing to try along with him.
Zimmern and Travel Channel has opened up a contest for fans to submit a two-minute or less video of them talking about a food they think is bizarre, but would be willing to try right along with him. He’ll then pick two of the contest entrants to join him in Las Vegas to try that food along with him. Submissions are being accepted from now until January 25.
The videos can be submitted to the Bizarre Foods Facebook page, and must be in by 11:59 AM ET on January 25. The contest is open to people 21 years old and up.
If you can’t stomach anything bizarre at all, but like to watch people who do, catch Zimmern’s season premiere of Bizarre Foods America on the Travel Channel at 10 PM ET/PT.
