Johnny, that interview is great.

I now know that the narrator is Jewish (slightly vindicating).

Epic meal time may have got to me somehow.

The other day I invented a drink, the Breakfast of Champions:

2 parts bacon vodka
2 parts jack daniels
1 part maple syrup

IT IS DELICIOUS.

I think regular swedish meal time is far superior to Epic Meal Time but whatever. 

There was an interview with the guy from EMT that I cannot find anymore, but he was asked about the allegations of sexism aimed at them (I assume that they were referring to the girls eating food) and the guys response was "haters gonna hate."  I facepalmed pretty hard. 

Their Meat Salad looked rather unappetizing and I think meat and cheese is getting a little old.  And I think I'm over bacon.  Yep, totally over bacon.

Inspired by this show, my friends got a kilo of burger meat, and baked a pizza on top of it.

This was on Wednesday, They're still feeling sick.

I'm a bit confused. I can't claim to have watched all of EMT but all the ones I've seen featuring females have shown them eating with the dudes. It definitely didn't seem like a sexualised thing and suggested to me that they'd invited a bunch of friends over (male and female) to eat their outrageous concoctions... By all means point me at the EMT in question and I may eat my hat.

Totally over bacon also. Bacon is most assuredly a sometimes food.

Yeah, I was scratching my head at that as well.

I assume someone (like always) got offended because of the sexualized nature of the girls eating the food, as well as some of the things that they've said like when they were talking about taking the syrup from the tree in that awesome french-toast sandwich.  I don't really find it all that offensive but whatever.

Man, I really want to make their amazing french-toast sandwich now, except without it being smothered in syrup.

YouTube is being an asshole for me right now, but look up the "Massive Meat Log" episode. I could certainly see how that could be called sexist. It's not really an endemic theme in the show though, so I don't really give a fuck.

EDIT: This one here

Just watched the "Massive meat log" episode and while it was certainly somewhat sexist it wasn't hugely, overtly "aaawwww yeah look at this bitch cram her face with saaaaaasauge".
Haters gonna hate is probably a fair comment on his part given that there's only a tiny tiny portion of sexism in the show and honestly, most of it revolves around self-depreciating humour and putting themselves through what most people would consider disgusting meals.

(Keen to try fast food sushi  :oops: )

I can see why they call it sexist but honestly... it's more sexualized than sexist.

I only watched a couple, but I kind of got the feeling that in the early ones it was "Watch a hot girl eat all this insane food", then they moved on to "watch our buddies eat all this insane food".

The girls were in the middle episodes (to the extent of my knowledge)

I just think that "haters gonna hate" is such an irritating answer during an interview.  It's such a bad deflection of what is a really awesome question that is really, really easy to dismantle.  I was kind of hoping they were going to say something like "it's just pretty girls eating food, and we eat food sexily too."

I think fast-food sushi has been the best thing that they've done.  Serious genius there.  Also, some of their creations have cost around $400....in case anyone was thinking of recreating these.

I'd devour those cupcakes but the hearts in everything was pretty unappetizing.

It's 3am, and I need to go get a burrito thanks to Tequila Taco Night.

yeah, the hearts kind of squicked me too. but then again, they are just muscle tissue so it's kind or irrational to be grossed out by them.

Yeah, this episode was a minor disappointment for me in that it was the second time they've ever cooked something I wouldn't love to eat.

First time was bacon grease egg nog, which sounds downright abhorrent. I'd probably try this stuff but overall it upset the balance that they have been so good at upholding between ridiculous and delicious.

In addition, I've defended the bacon shtick regularly but at this point even I have to confess that it's gotten old.

I see a fork in the road for this series. They can either continue being innovative in their crazy bro way and become an even bigger sensation or they can keep spending $400 a week on bacon and Jack Daniels and fall out of favor with the ever fickle internet.

It would have been better if they made like marinated BBQ chicken hearts.

I used to love eating the necks, livers and hearts from the Chicken BBQ sales back home.  They are really tasty when you cook them in vinegar based marinade!


I mean I don't see the point in baking hearts in baked goods.  It can't be that good.

They seem to have gone mad with power... The concoctions are getting less and less appetizing and more insane. Plus they're ramping up the sexism (see: Taco night video).

Yeah, wow, that got old really fast.  The valentine's video was disgusting and the misogyny was laid on quite thick.  Their whole "bro" shtick is too convincing, they really just seem like douchebags now which is also disheartening. 

I love comparing them to RSMT where you can really tell that they're hamming it up and doing an act.  Every time he puts mayonnaise or whatever that stuff is in his mouth, you see him cringe because it's revolting.  I like that.  I like the fact that they haven't done anything fancy either, it's painfully easy to get sick of "we got bacon, and bacon, and......yeah....even more bacon, WHAT!?" every single time they create something.  The adding alcohol to everything they concoct is also starting to get old.

I actually find it pretty funny and now I really want some bacon.

I can see how others would get quickly irritated by it but I'm not gonna lie, I lol'd at basically every video. Probably one of the main things is in England nothing comes in the quantity or size of stuff in America/Canada. Some of that stuff is mind boggling.

The girls just seem to add an even larger "bro" presence. Like their talk of JD, Black Ops, etc. Manly man things, apparently.

And hey, at least lesbian-make-out-scene-in-the-sky didn't happen.

Epic meal time may have got to me somehow.

The other day I invented a drink, the Breakfast of Champions:

2 parts bacon vodka
2 parts jack daniels
1 part maple syrup

IT IS DELICIOUS.

I was making whipped cream by hand at work the other day, and through a stroke of luck, ended up pouring liquid smoke in instead of vanilla extract. smokey bacon martini with a dollop of bbq whip cream. dear god.
