I have good news, and I have weird news. The good? The endlessly likable and wholesome Jeff Corwin is returning to a regular TV gig. The weird? It’s on the Food Network. My first thought was: “Whoa, he’ll teach us about exotic animals and how to eat them!” Mmmm, lemurburgers. (Kidding! I’m kidding.)

Alas, it’s a bit more Bourdanian normal than that. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will follow Corwin as he “travels the world, meets with natives, samples exotic foods and learns about local customs.”

Grand. It appears the Food Network is trying branch out a bit more, which might be why they’re working on a Brian Boitano show. A rep for the channel confirmed that they’re “looking at the possibility of something with Brian,” who was recently spotted at a Bay Area roller derby bout filming an episode of the could-be show.

C’mon, Food Network! I want a Brian Boitano lifestyle cooking show so bad I can taste it. Heyo, food joke.
