  4. Jamie in the US

    Leave a Comment

    Jamie Oliver is having a tough time of it at the moment. He’s over in the US trying to educate people in Huntingdon, West Virginia that what they are eating is slowly killing them. They have not responded well, and have misunderstood his intentions. Because he has a British accent (we know its cockney) they have assumed he lives in a castle with a butler which is grossly unfair. After a disastrous interview with David Letterman it seems he is now fairing better with the help of Oprah and Ryan Seacrest, who is producing his show.

    Rod Willis, the local DJ in Huntingdon accused him of exploiting their town for money but has since become a convert after Jamie took him to see the local funeral parlour, where there is a growing trade for coffins for the obese. (please check out the picture of this at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1261746/Jamie-Olivers-healthy-eating-crusade-America-gets-ratings-boost-appears-Oprah.html#ixzz0jegv5WRw

    He had a tough crowd over here, but nothing can compare to the US where the kids still put their hands up when asked if they wanted to eat a burger full of the most vile leftover bits of carcass. Middle America is really in trouble. Families are surrounded and hemmed in by fast food chains, full of addictive additives and education is minimal. This is a tough ask for any one to attempt. For those who have watched Food Inc, you will understand the problems facing someone to even attempt to try to turn the nations health around.
