After biting into this indulgent 1,600-calorie burger, Bobby and Nikki challenge Gas owners Ben and Lindy Loose to a food flip, where they will make a healthier version of the dish. If the people choose Bobby and Nikki’s burger, then Gas has to put it on the menu, but if Ben and Lindy win, they get bragging rights and $1,000.

  • Premiering Tuesday, June 9th at 9:00pmET/6:00pmPT – “The Unidentified Flipping Object”

This decadent 1,500-calorie burrito is the creation of Nicholas and Robin Kimball, owners of the SoCal-inspired A1A Burrito Works Taco Shop in St. Augustine Beach, Florida. Flipping a burrito seems like an easy challenge, but Bobby and Nikki soon learn that the customers who come to A1A Burrito are not looking for just a burrito; they require calorie-laced fuel to eat before surfing, riding or running all day. Bobby and Nikki attempt to come up with something that matches the U.F.O in flavor, and becomes a healthy source of fuel for the active people who eat it. With bragging rights and cash on the line, will they successfully flip the U.F.O. or will Nicholas back up his smack talk with a winner?

Nikki and Bobby challenge owners and pit-masters, Griffin and Harrison to the ultimate Junk Food Flip. They attempt to create healthier versions of the sandwich, first going head-to-head with each other in a street taste test.

Husband and wife team, Sean and Keely Mendes of Roadside Seafood in Charleston, South Carolina have created “The Southern Comfort” – creamy lobster mac n’ cheese, four slices of crispy bacon and two fried green tomatoes between two slices of buttered Texas toast. When Bobby and Nikki taste the 1,420-calorie sandwich, they challenge Sean to a Food Flip, but Sean does not think they stand a chance. Bobby and Nikki attempt to recreate those comforting Southern flavors with two very different, but leaner recipes. Once the winning sandwich is chosen in a taste test, Bobby and Nikki join forces to create a worthy challenger. Find out if Bobby and Nikki have what it takes to take down a Charleston favorite.

The “French Toast Frankie” contains roughly 80% of recommended daily calories, a fact of which “Perfectly Franks” owner Perry Cuda could not be more proud. When Bobby and Nikki roll into Summerville, South Carolina to take on this decadent dog, they think they have it easy flipping a 1,700 calorie dish, but the people of Summerville have very discerning taste buds. They love their rich, decadent food and any attempt to mess with tradition could spell certain defeat! Bobby and Nikki soon find themselves going head-to-head with a local hero in an arena filled with a hometown crowd, but they bring a strong challenger to the game.

No Question Mark Box Here; Super Mario Delivers a 1-Up in Theaters



If you were born in the ’80s, ’90s, or literally ANY decade after those, you know about Super Mario. A cultural phenomenon was brought to life on the big screen this last weekend. One that has not only stood the test of time but reinvented itself time and time again. This wasn’t even the first time it’s been made into a movie but, well, let’s be honest.. some of us choose not to acknowledge the LIVE action adaptation of the beloved game from 30 years ago. 

It was pretty bad… But this was animation. ILLUMINATION animation at that. The Universal company that brought us Gru and his Minions, showed us the Secret Life of Pets, and gave us a reason to SING! Still, I had my reservations and even some concerns, especially when the casting was announced. 

 Eyebrows were raised. As big of stars as they were on paper, could they really deliver on voicing characters from a staple of our childhood? They did.

Chris Pratt and Charlie Day may not be Italian, and Jack Black may not be a King or Turtle creature from the Mushroom Kingdom, but they make the characters their own all while paying homage to the lore of a video game. 

From the jump, the story reintroduces us to the brothers that just want to save Brooklyn one clogged sink at a time. We feel an instant connection and relate to these “underdogs of the plumbing world”. The movie is riddled with easter eggs, each of which tugs on the heartstrings of every generation of Mario fandom. And the soundtrack was beautifully put together to not only make us feel like we’re taking a walkthrough of the game but like an experience all its own with some familiar favorites thrown in.

Every word in the movie is pure eye candy for both those that are casual fans, and those analyzing every frame to see what they’ll catch next. Bowser’s ship, the Mushroom Kingdom, Kong’s arena, and the Rainbow Road.. They’re all meant to give us just enough of a “new” look at these amazing worlds, but stay true to how we remember them.

The movie itself moves along at the perfect pace. Although, if you don’t really know ANYTHING about the Super Mario Bros, you may have gotten a little lost and felt left behind in the green tunnel. But that’s ok! It’s an adventure of the imagination and a classic story of a boy that meets a girl and tries to save the world from a monster that wants to destroy it.

What’s funny is that you could easily say this is a story about two characters who couldn’t be more opposite if they tried, battling to win the heart of a princess. Who would’ve thought that the King of the Koopas was just trying to impress his crush?

And that song? Ohhh THAT song! It’s my new ringtone and deserves the Oscar for Best Original Song.

Back to the movie. 

Universal and Illumination clearly understood the assignment. Is it missing some things or could things have been done differently or even better? Absolutely! We’re the worst critics of the things we hold nearest and dearest to our hearts. But if you’re up for going on a 90-minute adventure through amazing worlds, with awesome music, and characters that’ll make you smile and laugh, then this is the perfect movie to spring you into that warm summer feeling.

Plus there’s the whole part with karts and shells, and banana peels and oh my goodness how amazing was that?? It’s enough to make you want to stand up and cheer, then go home and destroy your friends and family on your favorite track haha.

The bottom line, it pays homage in all the right ways to the little guy with the mustache, while giving us something new and exciting. Take the kids and go see Super Mario Bros. You’ll be glad you did!
