Man versus Food @ Beth’s Cafe

Potentially continuing my streak of getting airtime via no skill or talent of my own, I rode the coat-tails of Adam and Man Versus Food at Beth’s Cafe today. I say potentially, as I very well may end up on the cutting room floor; if I don’t, however, here’s how to recognize me:

My hat, with dillo

Big furry hat with LaRue Tactial Beverage Entry Tool (‘dillo). I showed up about 1500; looking at the schedule, they’d already been on location for 5 hours at that point. I took my usual place at the bar and snapped a picture of the talent:

Man v Food @ Beth's Cafe

This is Adam and Dave cooking the “talent” omelet. In all, four omelets were cooked – talent, stunt, and the two (!) that were eaten. More on this later. Adam mugging with the talent omelet:

This omelet was eaten by someone the owner knows that was hanging around. Here is the stunt omelet being cooked:

Camera man films stunt omelet

This is Adam doing the cold open for the next segment using the stunt omelet. This one was eaten by the manager; I can never remember his name.

You can see the glove Adam wears to protect himself from the hot tray. The production staff was prepared for everything! This is one of the few shots I took of the “competition” room; the producer asked me not to have the camera out while they were taping:

One of the Beth’s regulars (also named Adam) showed up and challenged Adam to an eat-off. I won’t give the ending away, but both Adams put down a prodigious amount of grub. There were 24 eggs up for grabs!

I was in the background of a lot of shots (hard not to be when there were only a dozen people in the background); I also got interviewed by the producer, and got to ask a question at the end. I think one of my segments with the producer may make the air, as I mentioned Alan had eaten a 12 egg omelet when he was 15. Unfortunately, I followed that up with a three-take try on answering another question; take two ended with a “fuck”. On take three, I mentioned the thread.

Before last night, I’d never heard of the show; I saw a blog post somewhere that they were filming at Red Mill Saturday, with Beth’s set for Sunday at 15:00. I was there for about three hours; when I left, they still had a couple hours on the schedule.

One of the crew members said something pretty strange; if you ask me in person, I’ll tell you what she said. I’m not saying it in writing; she might hunt me down.

Regardless, it was neat to see what all goes into a location shoot. I wonder if Adam had a six dollar shake for the road? No, no I don’t.
