For a good year and a half I stayed away from watching television shows.
But, recently I've been watching a ton of tv and I am in loved with the Travel Channel.
My two new favorite shows are "Meet the Natives" and "Man vs Food".
Meet the Natives is a documentary style reality show about 5 men from the island of Tanna (South Pacific) who are given mini-dv cameras and are flown to Montana, New York City, Orange County, CA, and Illinois. These men go to America to spread their message of peace, being that they come from a small island that thrives on being happy. It's a good concept and I hope a lot of people get a chance to watch the show. It's interesting to see how they react to hunting, holidays, food, snow, and pop culture. From doing a little research 5 other men were chosen a few years ago and sent to the UK to meet with Prince Philip and I don't think that meet-up worked out so well. Hopefully these guys get to meet Obama (which will be unlikely) but I'd like to see it. Here's a "sneak peak" of the show.
Man vs Food is a reality show based on an actor and "food enthusiast" named Adam Richman. He travels the US eating the biggest and spiciest foods made. I enjoy the fact that Adam is from Brooklyn -- its so funny - his accent, his gestures, i love it! The first episode I watched he was able to eat the spiciest wings ever made!
It was pretty funny seeing him sweating...
Check out a clips below..... one is of the suicide wing challenge, and the other is of the spicy tuna hand roll challenge.
*And for those who have Netflix you can watch full episodes of Man vs. Food season 1
