Spike TV is holding a local casting call for people interested in humiliating themselves on TV for cash and prizes. I can’t explain this any better than they can, so here’s what they’re looking for, in their own words:
Have you ever invented a recipe that is way beyond the culinary box? Or discovered a crazy food combination that brings taste to surprising and delectable new delights? Then Spike TV is looking for you! The network is currently casting for food lovers that mix outrageous and unexpected ingredients to create delicious and revolutionary flavors to compete for a cash prize in its first-ever food series, Frankenfood. Frankenfood features local amateur food innovators competing head-to-head in order to get their unexpected food concoctions onto the menu of a popular local restaurant, win a cash prize and possibly create the next big food craze. Whether it’s an old family recipe or a tried-and-true hangover remedy, Frankenfood will bring to light some of the most mouth watering and sometimes stomach churning combinations ever conceived.
So, basically, if you know how to cook something gross or weird that doesn’t immediately kill you or make you go blind, Spike will put you on TV. Oh, and as a local bonus? The show is being hosted by “superstar executive chef” Josh Capon and will have as a regular series judge “cheesesteak impressario” Tony Luke Jr.
