Season 0, Episode 5
As Anthony Bourdain heads off to another Season 3 location, he takes some time to reminisce about his experiences during Season 2, namely those 'golden moments' that viewers don't always get to see.Tony has rules for his producers to follow - no silly hats, dancing, and NO karaoke. However, those rules aren't always followed. In Korea Tony was caught belting-out some tunes, in India he danced with a eunuch in the desert, and in Sweden he modeled the latest headwear courtesy of two professional stunt skiers. So much for rules! But Tony got his revenge on Exec Producer Chris, by attempting to wipe him out in the Swedish tundra; when that didn't succeed, Tony settled for old-fashioned embarrassment when Chris donned a makeshift diaper under a Japanese waterfall.Tony had many other gripes throughout the season, like traveling to frozen climates in the dead of winter (think Sweden and Quebec), eating 'risky' meals (like bacterial street food in India and raw seal in Inukjuak), and those 'If only we had been here yesterday." scenes (like the blackout in Puerto Rico or the cockfight that wasn't, in India). And among all those risks, slip-ups, and health hazards, injuries were bound to happen. And they did. Among the trips, slips, spills, and bumps, there were episodes of bacterial infections, nasty carnivorous bug bites, and even a nacho-related head injury.Yet among all of the embarrassing, painful, and freezing cold moments of Season 2, Tony admits he really does relish his job. Who else gets to dine with an Indian Maharajah, witness the sacred Monkey Dance in Indonesia, and enjoy freshly caught and prepared sushi at a tiny authentic Japanese sushi bar? Tony does, and he loves every minute of it.
