I made a Lobster episode (featuring 'lobster hypnosis' -- I'm one of only two or three guys doing that) and an American Hotdog Episode. She showed it to the top guy (They run it like the BBC over there--one guy in charge of some 250 channels.) He immediately demoted his assistant, fired her from all her contractual obligations and sent her on the first plane home. She wrote, "I hope you understand if I never contact you again.) I was so proud. In retaliation, I made the Asshole Chef - Swedish Meatballs Episode and sent it to the producer. I mentioned how the Swedish balls are typically rolled much smaller than American balls. And my recipe buried the Swedes in terms of quality.
Now, I know you can't say 'Asshole' on TV. But my back-story as a performance artist, a Foody Snoot, and my further idea (Don't steal it...I have a copyright...) "Ordinary Guy - Extraordinary Food" where you take a 'Joe' like me with a 'forward' personality, and ship him off to the top 25 SanPelligrino restaurants in the world for the audience to vicariously live through his experience of the best food imaginable...Oh yeah, baby! It's a winner. Lots of tie-ins for commercial income as well. I'd stop and visit the local terrain, bars, hangouts, dives, etc., but then we get to the palace de jour, and roar. Picture a low-income performance character personality having a go with the Roca Brothers or fussing my way through a plate of Char with Beeswax, Yellow Carrot, ‘Pollen’ and Sour Cream by Heinz Reitbauer? Cute fellow, I might add. Sexually attractive in the gay way. "Ordinary Guy - Extraordinary Food"--Think Bourdain without any significant expertise, but twice the attitude if you believe that's possible. I will box Bourdain in a drunken brawl in an Aussie Outback with a kangaroo judge, so long as we get to eat cobra hearts and fugu prepared by amateurs. OK?
So let's get this banana on the road. I'm a busy man. Here is the link for what happened in Sweden, featuring links to related videos: http://millerworks.weebly.com/1/post/2012/11/the-swedish-asshole-fiasco-a-true-story.html

Here's a live cooking performance wherein I prepare an asshole diner's most hated fish with his most despised sauce component, and blow his mind out of the park: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KPNAQFS980
Hurry up. I'm hungry. Worst case, somebody scoop me up and shop me to the Travel Channel. Who gives a shit.
