Travel Channel superstar Andrew Zimmern is adding another show to the network's lineup when his Driven by Food premieres in August. The longtime Bizarre Foods host says the new program is all about going behind the scenes and avoiding tourist traps in popular dining destinations, and it will lean on locals as Zimmern's tour guides to test out off-the-radar spots. This preview makes it clear the show is about much more than food.
Zimmern and his fixer travel to a gym in Hyderabad, India, where the host takes part in some traditional wrestling. "Are you trying to give me a hint, like a need more exercise?" he asks his travel companion. "Because all we've been doing is eating." Zimmern comes out of his match victorious, though he seems to believe his opponent may have been a bit generous.
Watch the video above and get a shot of Andrew Zimmern, the wrestler in action.
Update: A sneak peek at Driven By Food airs Tuesday night on the Travel Channel at 10 p.m. ET. after Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations.
