Playground's Jason Quinn To Be A Judge On New MTV Food Show
Food truck chef, Food Network's Great Food Truck Race winner, irascible restaurant owner who famously told a Yelp reviewer to "burn in hell", and OC Weekly cover boy Jason Quinn will need to add yet another title to his résumé.
According to this article in Variety, the Playground chef will play a Simon Cowell-like role as a judge in a new MTV show called Snackdown, which will feature amateur chefs competing in snack-inspired challenges. The winner will get a cash prize and be published in a cookbook based on the show. The equally irascible Eddie Huang hosts the program. Jason Quinn will be one of three judges along with model Chrissy Teigen.
The lesson: Being irascible can get you places.
A hat-tip to reader JB for the heads-up.
