Our Hosts' Favorite Field Trips
Our hosts share memories from their school days.
1. Bert Kreischer, Trip Flip
My favorite teacher was … "I don't remember his name, but he was a writing teacher in college who inspired me to start writing every day in the middle of the semester. He died riding his motorcycle."
2. Nick Groff, Ghost Adventures
My favorite teacher was … "UNLV film class [professor] Francisco Menendez. Good teacher; I learned a lot and how to tell the story first."
3. Anthony Melchiorri, Hotel Impossible
My favorite teacher was … "Mrs McCoy in fourth grade. She always went out of her way to help me. Plus she was really pretty!"
4. Billy Leroy, Baggage Battles
My favorite teacher was … "Tom Farmen at Rumsey Hall School because he was very supportive in anything I did, [particularly] football."
5. Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods America
My favorite teacher was … "Connie Mayer. She taught me how to write, read and think critically."
6. Amy Allan, The Dead Files
My favorite teacher was … Miss Long, my special education teacher, she took the time to figure out the best way for me to learn and she was psychic and taught me how to ground out and protect myself. I was in her class all through elementary school.
7. Jordan Hembrough, Toy Hunter
My favorite teacher was … "my drama teacher Mr. Hurley in high school. He really introduced me to the theatre and encouraged me to try out for all the plays and musicals. It was because of his teaching and mentoring that I had the courage to perform at Bucks County Playhouse in [Pennsylvania]."
8. Don Wildman, Off Limits
My favorite teacher was … “Mrs. Gambogi, Fourth Grade. Without knowing it, while posted on her stool at the front of the class, reading Charlotte's Web, she introduced me to the lovely charms of a woman's calf. She probably ignored the fact that I was staring.”
9. Ed Edmunds, Making Monsters
My favorite teacher was … “Don McFarland, he let me sculpt masks in a drawing class for college credit. Years later I hired him to draw some stuff for Distortions. The teacher that would have been my favorite was my dentist’s brother who was head of the art department at UCSC; he saw some of my masks in high school and offered me a scholarship on the spot to sculpt masks ... I turned him down, thinking ‘I can't make money doing that.'”
10. Mark Meyer, Baggage Battles
My favorite field trip was … “[My] middle school trip to Frost Valley -- too many kids and too few chaperones."
