waste my [ bleep ]. if i was like, riding on a sea doo and all of a sudden there was like dolphins, and i'm like under the water, go pro on, i come out dolphins go over me, rainbow, cameras capturing the rainbow of the sun, and i'm like what the [ bleep ]. like that's a good [ bleep ]. but if i'm just there just being like on the beach, eating like a taquito, being like, oh this is a really good [ bleep ] taco. it's like, don't say [ bleep ] there, man. but if there's the dolphins and [ bleep ] light and that, that's when you say [ bleep ], that's the good [ bleep ]. does that maen >> [ bleep ] ? i'm matty matheson and i'm the host of "dead set on life," the greatest tv show in the world. galaxy, universe, infinity. ? >> i'm matty matheson, and i'm back for season two of "dead set on life." this is the party i've been looking for. i'm going to do more. travel more. there's a cow down here on the beach. eat more. i'll have the fatty brisket. >> i just don't want to be a glutton.
>> who am i? i'm an amazing world class chef from toronto, canada. you know, got a few restaurants in toronto. doing some stuff on the internet and tv. chef. chef guy. ? how good of a chef do i think i am? i don't know man, i'm pretty good. i don't know like -- i don't know. i'm good. i'm definitely not the chef that's on television in the kitchen, right. like, there's definitely two -- like, when i do the how to like being funny and like, some fans take that to the hundredth degree and like, they'll come in the restaurant and be like, what the [ bleep ] is up. what's going on, matty? and they want to like throw a beer, i'm like, this is a restaurant. i don't know like, why you think like, i'm like that all the time. or i met a guy at the shoe store, dude was like i can't believe like how like you're really quiet. i'm like, i'm by myself looking for a pair of shoes. do you think i'm just like going to walk around and like punch someone in the back of the head or like, what's your [ bleep ] expectation of me?
professional chef, 2005/2006, you know i had about a 10 year span of being a psychopath. my personality is very high energy and i used to drink a lot. i used to do a lot of drugs. i loved partying. i loved cooking. i would go to other peoples restaurants and chug wine or rip my shirt off or like, you know like i was an animal. i was young. our industry embraces that. we want to be vikings. in my mind, that's what i thought was cool. now i look back on it and it's liked and i was often very, very drunk or really, really high. >> just [ bleep ] eat it. >> i can sort of squeeze it out, yeah. >> that's good. >> yeah. ? >> i think the show is me experiencing things that i've never experienced before. traveling, eating, meeting people and kind of getting just a little bit -- a layer deeper than usual. i love restaurants because it's such a human thing. it's the one time when you can't lie.
it's [ bleep ]. you know? and you eat something that's amazing and it's amazing. i love that about it. there's no lying. and i think with television you can manipulate some stuff but it's still -- we're trying to make a show where we don't lie. i'm not a typical good looking person that's suppose to be on television. if i'm vulnerable and excited and willing to listen and talk to these people on camera and hang out and just see a little bit of their world then, i think that that's amazing television. everyone has a cool story. everyone has been broken. and everyone's put themselves wake up everyday and you've got to [ bleep ] live. >> do you want to like go over there? maybe see if we can see like footprints or a hole or something? >> it be like looking for a needle in a football stadium. >> needle in a football stadium. well, it's like looking for a seal in the god damn arctic. that's exactly what it is. the show has been able to bring me to so many amazing places. go to louisiana, hanging out with like cheeky blakk. she's like the queen of twerk or
we go to nunavut. nunavut is crazy. it's, you know, the arctic up in canada. and that's places like being on the moon, you know. it's above the tree line. just craters and ice and snow. and insane like wolf huskies. i want to make it even more intense. like i want to start having like more like, docu-style, actually and have like more cameras on all the time. 'cause there's things that you miss and you're like [ bleep ] what were we shooting at. we're like no, that woman just said that like black people need to stop talking about slavery 'cause it was a long time ago. what? someone said that. horrible person. yo. racism? get out of town. no go. all human. one race. the human race. get used to it, you freaks. confederate flag, suck my [ bleep ]. ? if everyone acted like me, the world would be a better place. so start acting right. be nice to people.
and then you cook for many people, then all of a sudden they're happy. world's a good place. food is the best thing in the world. food and laughter. start laughing more. start cooking [ bleep ] things up. learn from it. and then all of a sudden you're laughing at yourself, laughing with the other people in the room, you're having a good time. world changed. ? >> carson: don't go anywhe to keep up to date with the very latest celebrity news, videos and pictures, be sure to check out splashnewsonline.com/ o m g ten years later, nothing's really changed. it's time to snap out of it. hello moto. snap on a jbl speaker. put a 70? screen on a wall. get a 10x optical zoom. get excited world.

we adore our mandy. she talked about touring with n sync when she was just 15 years old. she was the group's opening act. and then something happened. she ran into justin timberlake while they were hanging out backstage. which each sure she couldn't believe it. he said something to her that she never forgot and not in a good way. take a look. >> but justin timberlake was there and he was -- somehow there was a conversation about feet or foot siz the en insync background dancers. and i come strolling up at 15, like freaking out that justin timberlake was there. and he's like you have big feet for a girl. and i -- i'm sure he doesn't remember this at all. but i was so impressionable. i thought the world of him. 16 years later, it stuck with
>> she wears -- >> a size 10, which is fine. if you're tall like she is. >> and you are. >> people often go, well what size? well you're really tall. how much do you weigh? i'll say 152. well, that's because you're tall. but you still know. >> a little judgment in there. >> i think it's weird. >> in proportion in you know what i mean. >> you don't forget. think about a cruel thing someone said to you when you were a kid. >> you never forget the cruelties. you never forget the kindnesses. you try to forgive the cruelties. you do remember. >> you remember. >> but you can't forget. >> so this thanksgiving when y thanksgiving table and someone's about to say something, think twice before you blurt out something that might not be kind. it takes one second to edit it. we have a bachelor update. >> come on, amanda. >> to tell us all about it is our guest, the beautiful amanda avery. >> so there's drama in bachelor world. i'm going to take you back to a year ago when ben higgins was the bachelor. remember him? he looked like peter brady.
he ended the show with a proposal to lauren. they were going to live happily ever after. they got their own spin-off reality show that we've been -- i've been following. and they're planning their wedding. full-fledged wedding planner mode. she's picking out dresses. this week on the show, the show brought in a therapist to kind of talk to them. it was supposed to be funny. and to kind of check in and play like newlywed-style games. the topic of the wedding came up and all of a sudden he burst >> don't do that, guys, oh, don't do that. >> take a look. >> i don't want us to rush it. i don't want us to jump into something we're both still figuring out. i think making a commitment like marrying somebody involves knowing what you're getting into. there's still things we need to know. >> i have no idea what just
i had no idea that ben was feeling this way. and i feel completely blindsided. >> i feel like we have so much to figure out that it's hard for me at this point to, like, really feel comfortable getting married. >> so you're saying the wedding is off? >> wait, should have postponed. >> yeah, so this is the big wedding, like they were going to have a big -- i'm holding hope for them now. i think there's hope. >> what do you think? >> i watched the show and she has been so gung-ho with the wedding and you can see him pulling back and getting glassy eyed. this was a bombshell though. for him to say -- because they probably have some kind of deal going or this was going to be a televised wedding.
>> oh. >> now saying that, there's two episodes left of this reality show which follows the ups and downs of the relationship so we will see. >> some people do get that way when it gets close to the wedding. the girl's planning and planning and the guy's retreating. >> the crying thing is -- >> no, i believed his tears. >> i believed it too. he did break down. they even went wedding cake shopping and she picked out a coconut wedding cake. he's like, i'm allergic to coconut. shouldn't we know these things so it's these little things that happened. >> i love when amanda visit us. we love you amanda. >> hook, line and sinker amanda. >> that's right, baby. all right. this is the time you've been waiting for. you're about to make your bird or it's coming up next week. we have the people who know how to cook a turkey better than anybody. butterball is going to be on the
butterball call center in naperville, illinois. okay. all right. hi, phyllis. >> hi, good morning. we're talking turkeye.. all right. hi, phyllis. >> hi, good morning. we're talking turkey here. >> we are talking turkey. would you do answers and questions from our viewers? >> sure. >> all right, christy asks this, which is better for a juiciness, an oven bag or foil and a roasting pan? that is to tell you the most important thing is to be sure your turkey is not overcooked. and if you get yourself a good thermometer, that won't happen. so either method. but briefly, the open pan. the one that comes out of the oven just like the picture. perfect gorgeous bird. that's what most our callers are asking about. it's our favorite actually. and the turkey is just brushed
close the door. >> oh, so don't use a bag? don't tent it? >> you can put it down, colin. >> so if you use a bag, it's a little different. it's more steaming than a roasting method. >> we hope you guys can hear at home -- >> i'm sorry, we're having a little bit of issues with the call breaking up a bit. but she said don't put it in a bag, stick it in the oven. >> here's the thing, use butterball, and when the little temperature thing pops out, it's done. there you go. presto. >> we prefer if you have an oven thermometer. >> see, an oven thermometer. >> you're not selling your own birds? >> no, 170 in the breast, 180 in the thigh, get a good meat thermometer, then you know for sure. >> okay. >> phyllis, thank you very much. >> sorry we couldn't hear you well.. >> what is colin doing? >> getting really to serve the turkey delight. i like she said, a good meat thermometer.
you went against her whole principle. >> you did. >> because have you ever had a -- >> oh, you're so principled. did you ever have a butter ball turkey? >> what? >> never mind! >> all right, it's time for a little music, colin. >> already? >> an oldie but goody. this is blues traveler. who doesn't like a little blues traveler. "run around," baby. doesn't this put you in an instantly good mood? >> yeah. ? >> he dances like a guy right there. that's the dance. ? once upon a midnight weary i woke with something in my head ? ? i couldn't escape the memory of the phone call ? ? and what you said ?
