Ali couldn’t let Joey off easy and not ask him about his *NSYNC days. After he revealed the band’s pre-show ritual that occasionally kept the audience waiting (check the video), he gave her his advice for the boy band of the moment, One Direction. “Stay off twitter. Back then with *NSYNC we we didn’t have Twitter, didn’t have Facebook. It’s such an immediate response on stuff now that you gotta kinda be a little careful.”
Joey’s new show, however, is all about food. “I go to people’s homes,” he explained, “I go ‘hey, whaddaya got cooking?’ They go ‘this is what it is,’ I eat their food and I go home. It’s great.”
The show features ordinary people in ordinary real kitchens, just cooking up what their family has passed down from generation to generation. The weirdest thing Joey’s eaten, as a result, was “duck heart and brain.”
