Smackdown: Tyler Florence, ‘Least Talented TV Chef,’ vs. Andrew Zimmern, ‘The Guy who Eats Dried Camel Cock’
In an apparent attempt to follow even more closely in the footsteps of Anthony Bourdain, Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods has used his blog to call out “the world’s least talented TV chef” Tyler Florence and his recent performance on Momma’s Boys: “Watching Florence wolf down the food, stare and ogle every ass that strolled by his cutting board and play the role of local TV stud was high comedy of the highest order.” Oh, but it gets better — Florence has responded via his Facebook page!
Normally I have pretty thick skin when it comes to blogs and what people think. It is a free country after all, But this guy Andrew Zimmern, the guy who eats dried camel cock for a living, has decided to dis my life's work because I did, my personal friend, Ryan Seacrest, a favor and helped him out with his first big television production, "Momma's Boy's" It was a big hit for NBC and something I had a fun time doing. It's bubble gum reality, who cares. It was funny. I guess it hard to have a sense of humor when you're on your 10th take of eating Yak testicles, smiling to the camera, wondering where your life went wrong......... mmmmm, Delicious!
Let's put an end to Chef on Chef violence in '09.
Um, an end to Israeli-Palestinian violence we can get behind. But this stuff? Keep it coming, boys!!
