Foodie 2 Shoes
Foodie 2 Shoes is a Hong Kong broadcasting variety game show. It debuted in August 2007 until October 2007, broadcast from Tuesday to Friday. It consist of 34 episodes and a special ending episode. Foodie 2 Shoes is a joint collaboration between Taiwan and Hong Kong. The two hosts are Taiwan’s popular singer/composer Harlem Yu and Hong Kong’s actor/singer Patrick Tang. Along with the two hosts are eight lady helpers each representing a type of fruit or drinks known as Angels of Taste. Because of the difference in the host’s background and native language, they both would attempt to speak each other’s language, creating an entertaining atmosphere for the audience. In the beginning of each episode, Harlem would attempt to speak a Cantonese phrase or Patrick attempting a Taiwanese phrase, making the audience laugh and guessing what they are saying. Afterward, the hosts would give away a free zodiac figure made of 14k gold to an audience that can guess correctly the ingredients of a food sample. The show then continues with a variety of games that enable guests to use their five senses to differentiate various foods. Every two episodes will have four guests each in two pairs, often celebrities or famous figures. The purpose of the show aimed to draw the two culture together with food. Within each sense game, the winning pair will receive cash as reward and the amount differs in each game. At the end of each episode, the two pair of guests must play a simple game to determine who gets all the cash that was rewarded. Foodie 2 Shoes is the name of the first season. After it ended, the show aired its second season as Boom Boom Ba with new game concepts from February 2009 until end of March 2009.
