HOW DO YOU KNOW EACH OTHER? HOW LONG?
XXYXS

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITIES. (WILD, CRAZY, GEEK. ETC.)
Smart, fun, geeky, creative, stylish, potentially wacked out, but I would say that our best aspect of our personalities as it pertains to this show is that we are resourceful

WHY WOULD YOU CONSIDER YOURSELVES CHOWHOUNDS, FOODIES, CONNISSEURS, ETC?
The word Foodie is offensive, but I’m always looking for the next adventure in eating. Atypical neighborhoods, irregular cuts of animals, and delving into the depths of society’s underbelly gets me excited. Is that what a chowhound is?

HOW LING HAVE YOU BOTH LIVED IN THE CITY AND EXPLAIN YOUR FOOD RELATED BACKGROUNDS AND EXPERIENCE HERE?
Jeff: I have been living at the intersection of Woodside, Jackson Heights, and Elmhurst for the past year. Before that I lived in Wantagh, Long Island. I moved here for one reason: the food. I see living here as my education. I am always trying to learn more. I have a food blog http://iwantmorefood.com – I made it as a way of talking about food and eating adventures in NYC in addition to the reviews I put on yelp.com which can be seen at http://sayyes.yelp.com . I also run the Jackson Heights Food Group, where every month we check out “always authentic, sometimes adventurous” restaurants in the area. In October it transforms into the Queens Food Group, then next year the Outer Boroughs Food Group, the year after that The World.

WHAT FOOD PLACES IN THE AREA ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT AND WHY?
Katz’s – It transcends tourism.

St. Marks Street izakayas – Japanese pubs. This is what a night out should be: eating radical food and drinking lots of beer and sake.

I pretty much have a new passion every month, so this city feeds that ADD perfectly. This month it’s Chino-Latino, Thai, and Ecuadorian. Next month, who knows??

WHAT ARE EACH OF YOUR SPECIALTY FOODS OR AREAS OF EXPERTISE?
Central and South American. Crappy Chinese. Jewish. Finding anything.

WHAT FOOD DISHES ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Hamburgers. Pizza. Hot Dogs. I’m passionate about trying something I’ve never seen before.

ARE YOU COMPETITIVE PEOPLE? HOW IMPORTANT IS WINNING?
We are both very competitive people. We always want to be the best at whatever we do – separately or together, food related or not. We’re in to win.

WHY WOULD YOU BE A GOOD TEAM? WHAT MAKES YOU ENTERTAINING?
We compliment each others strengths and weaknesses. Somehow we understand each other and make each other weird. Collectively, we’re hilarious.

DO EITHER OF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH CONCERNS OR PHOBIAS THAT WOULD PREVENT YOU FROM ANY PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES?
Nope. Bring it.
DO EITHER OF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL DIETS OR FOOD ALLERGIES?
I hate olives. She hates mushrooms. Neither require medical assistance if digested.

ARE THERE ANY FOODS YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT EAT? ARE YOU VEGETARIANS?
See above.

HAVE EITHER OF YOU APPEARED ON ANY OTHER REALITY BASED TV SHOW? IF SO, PLEASE EXPLAIN.
not me.

HAVE EITHER OF YOU EVER BEEN CONVICTEED OF A CRIME? IF SO, PLEASE EXPLAIN.
No. Never Convicted.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO TELL US?
(Brag about yourselves. What makes you unique contestants?)

We’re the coolest mother fuckers alive. And if you are willing to go to a cemetery to find cooler, then we’ll give you the shovels. We are in no way formally trained, but extremely passionate about competition and FOOD. We never hesitate to jump right in, try something new and make the best out of any situation. We’ll shock you as we blind you with our science.

Just sent in the application yesterday. Will keep you updated. They are looking for food experts, I think a food blogger like me would be a radical choice. What would your answers be?
