    Perhaps they'll agree to handle the Grand Prix series to complement their Brian Boitano program.

    AFAIR, Brian said during the 1988 Olympic fluffs that he always wanted to start a restaurant.

    I don't know why but I do not like cooking shows. Or sports.
    I get really disgusted with shows like Victory Garden. I want to watch about the plants, etc. not cooking.

    I am not a big fan of cooking shows. I prefer the competitive shows and cake decorating type stuff... but I'm willing to give Mr. Boitano a try...

    and Boitano is known for his hosting... there are a lot of autobiographies by other skaters mentioning his entertaining skills (as well as culinary)... Orser has a similar rep...in some ways their similarities are spooky lol

    What Would Brian Boitano Make?

    It's a new show to air on Food Network beginning August 23rd at 1pm.

    http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2009...-know-wha.html

    As per the magazine article:

    Turns out the Olympic skating gold medalist is gold in the ktichen. "After the Olympics, when I could start eating, I was like 'Food's good!'" he says. " It opened up a new passion." The self-taught chef describes his series as a culinary "Docusoap" where guests will drop by. "one of my episodes is with roller-drey girsl," says Boitano. "they wanted me to cook an entire menu with bacon."

    TVBrian Boitano's New Show on Food Network

    I'm not sure if anyone has posted about this already or not, but Brian Boitano has a new show on Food Network called What Would Brian Boitano Make? It's title is an obvious play on the Southpark song. The gist of the show is that Brian comes up with scenarios to cook for his friends in social situations and shares his recipes with the audience. It premiered today and I DVR'd it. I just started watching and it's a hoot! The premiere re-airs on Saturday at 6:30PM. The show's regular airtime is Sunday's at 1PM.

    Who knows? Maybe all these retired skaters showing up in other TV formats will help spur some new interest in skating come the Olympics.

    Of course it started before we came home from church. I taped it but did see a little of it. Will probably watch it this time. Trouble is, I hate sausage and am allergic to pepper. Can't eat anything spicy.

    Haha, I managed to catch it.
    Brian...what a joker! It was so different from the other "generic" food shows that it was actually really fresh and I found myself laughing at moments. His food actually looks very good, too. I'm a vegetarian so much of the food I wouldn't eat personally, but it still looks really well-made and it's appealing to look at.
    Not to mention that apparently Brian has friends that range from a Hollywood-looking sunglasses-clan man who knows a lot of single ladies to an elderly foreign woman.
    Also, the show at least showed a couple seconds of skating xD
