Zimmern's new Bizarre World show premieres tonight
Zimmern's new show "Bizarre World" premieres tonight on the Travel Channel. The show seems to depart from his "Bizarre Foods" show in its attempt to more fully explore the culture and traditions of the places he visits rather than just focusing on food. We're not quite sure we understand. Does this mean we'll now get to see Zimmern, say, praying with Tibetan monks? Doing tai chi with elderly Chinese people? Sweat lodging it? Gawd.
In tonight's show, Zimmern travels to Cuba where he apparently dines on local tree rats and participates in a ritual that involves bathing in blood. Now this we gotta see. Show starts at 9 p.m. Let us know what you think.
