WhO:

  • Andrew Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods

WhAT:

  • According to WARMING GLOW Zimmern was interviewed on “Nightline” last July.  In the interview he revealed that at one time he was homeless in NYC and did whatever he had to do to support his drug habit.

Zimmern: I lived in an abandoned building in lower Manhattan; one that we squatted – a bottle gang and I. I would steal purses off the backs of chairs in those swanky little cafes on Madison Avenue, run down the side street, leap the wall at Central Park and 5th Avenue, get on the subway, go down to the lower east side and sell the credit cards and passports that were in the purses for money to support my drug and alcohol habit. And then go to sleep at night on a pile of dirty clothes in this abandoned building and I sprinkled a bottle of Comet Cleanser around so the rats and roaches wouldn’t cross over at night so I could pass out in some peace and quiet and that’s what I thought was normal. That’s how I lived for a year – no showering, I was the guy you crossed the street to avoid if you walked by me in New York.

WhEN:

  • In a previous life

WhERE:

  • NYC

WhY:

  • Probably because he knew that it would enable him to eat the grossest things imaginable later in life when a second rate cable channel came calling.
