Glutton for Punishment
Culinary adventurer Bob Blumer (“The Surreal Gourmet”) seeks out extreme epicurean challenges around the world in this exciting new series. Whether it's braving the heat as a BBQ Pit Master in Kansas City, enduring the elements for five days of backbreaking grape picking in Germany, or burning his lips off at the Hatch Chile Pepper Eating Contest in New Mexico, Bob's appetite for adrenaline-charged culinary feats knows no bounds in Season One of Glutton for Punishment!
Bob's threshold for punishment is pushed to the limit in Season Two of Glutton for Punishment – an action-packed journey that finds Bob in over his head once again, as he attempts to wrestle a 50-pound catfish in Oklahoma, chase a cheese wheel down a cliff in England, wear a beard of forty thousand live bees in British Columbia, and tempt fate with the deadly fugu fish in Japan. Strap in tight and enjoy the ride!
