"Work with whatcha got!"
Average Betty, the show, is a campy, short-format video series that tosses food and sketch-comedy into a blender and flips the switch! The show debuted on iTunes in August 2006 and has since spread all over the Internet. Some love it, some hate it, and others question, “is this even a cooking show?”
Average Betty, the person, is your average American gal that loves sunsets, corn dogs and SPF 30. She can jump rope “Rocky Balboa” style, but is not into drinking raw eggs. Average Betty grew up in Florida and is the last of six children from a middle-class family. She went to public school, wasn’t popular, and lettered in Drama! She bartended through college, changed her major countless times and graduated with a degree in Art History. Average Betty is a visual artist in Los Angeles, a self-proclaimed “food hacker,” and the producer of the Average Betty Show!
Average Betty loves to entertain and cook. She calls what she does “food hacking” because she often just hacks away in the kitchen experimenting with different ingredients and preparations. Many times the result is a tasty new dish; other times not so tasty. One Sony Handycam and a “few” glasses of wine later, the Average Betty Show was born! (It weighed 7 pounds and 8 ounces.)
Average Betty’s motto is, “Work with whatcha got!” You don’t need no stinkin’ culinary degree, fancy equipment or a lot of time to try Average Betty’s recipes at home. And your home kitchen is the best place to make a positive impact on your diet, health and quality of life, yo!
Average Betty brings a punk-rock attitude to home and cooking entertainment. True, she doesn’t have a mowhawk, but she does cut the length and crank the volume! Why spend hours watching the same old food programming when, in just a few minutes, Average Betty can show you something fresh and exciting that you can easily prepare at home.
So whether you live to eat, or just eat to live, Average Betty has something for you to sink your teeth into!
