This is our second video this week. It is a quick look at the Alien Fresh Jerky store in Baker, CA. If you’ve done the drive from LA to Vegas, you’ve probably seen their signs on the way there. One day we decided to check them out in Baker and we were impressed by how good their jerky is. We have been stopping there on the way to Vegas ever since. It is a cool, quirky store that sells really good jerky. In addition to jerky they also sell nuts, hot sauce, candy, souvenirs, and the widest array of energy drinks I’ve ever seen. They’ve recently added an alien Barack Obama display. Baker is also home to the world’s tallest thermometer, which is kind of disappointing since it is just a digital thermometer built into a big pole. We wanted to see a giant tube of mercury.

Look back at Gbot’s bests and worsts of 2010. We will be back next week to begin our month of Gbot in Las Vegas specials.

It’s our special Canada episode, shot entirely in Orange County, CA! This was pretty hard as there isn’t really anything Canadian around here at all. We got some Ducks hockey, cheap Canadian beers, and found a place that served poutine. Sorry Canada for summing up your country with hockey, beer, and fries.

If you don’t know what balut is, watch this video. If you do know what balut is, watch this video. Either way, be prepared to see Gbot eat the most challenging thing he’s ever encountered. And he thought durian was bad…

Just kidding. This is Gbot getting lost. No smoke monsters, islands, or crazy mathematical codes. Gbot hates math.

This week, Gbot plays mad scientist and combines two tasty treats to create the donut-dog: a bacon wrapped hot dog fried inside a donut. He also creates two other bacon donuts. Will these crazy creations taste good or just give Gbot a heart attack?

This week, join Gbot as he tries some foul smelling foods.

Happy Halloween everyone. In this horror themed episode, Gbot shares some of his worst dining experiences including “Chinese” food in LA’s Chinatown and an encounter with the infamous Orochan special #2. Gbot’s TnA: now in 1080p.

Check out this week’s all new episode as Gbot visits a Korean festival and enjoys some traditional Korean foods as well as some not so traditional Korean tacos.

Things get a little out of hand this week when Gbot is challenged to crawfish eating contest by his buddy Cody.
