Fenway Park executive chef Steve "Nookie" Postal is one of the contestants on the upcoming new Bravo show Around the World in 80 Plates, and the trailer is now available for your viewing pleasure. The premise: 12 chefs trot the globe competing against one another by taking over restaurants and trying to get the approval of regular diners despite unfamiliar surroundings and ingredients. Highlights from the trailer include Wolfgang Puck saying something is one dimensional, someone falling down, lots of running around airports, tears and frowny faces, coconut bashing, rice harvesting, lots of running around exotic looking town squares, eye-rolling, threatening boasts, some more running, and a couple of cobras. Also, one chef says "When push comes to shove, I will push and shove you and take that rug out from under you." Good luck, Nookie. The show premieres on May 9.
