Joe Barlow eats too much on ‘1st Look’

AUSTIN (KXAN/KNVA) — There’s a lot of great restaurants in Austin, so it’s no surprise a national travel show came to document one.

1st Look is a travel show on NBC that takes host, former Pussycat Doll, Ashley Roberts all around the world. Her most recent episode, “Dare Me”, featured dares that took Ashley outside her comfort zone including trying stand-up comedy and riding a bull.

Austin favorite, Juan in a Million was featured in her food challenge dare. She got a little help from the number 22 ranked competitive eater, Steven Schuster of Houston and our own Joe Barlow.
