around the world in 80 plates.jpg

Sick of watching reality stars exploring incredible travel destinations while you "slum" it in your living room? Bravo's newest culinary series, Around the World in 80 Plates, which sends chefs around the world to compete in different restaurants, aims to change that by giving viewers a chance to get off the couch and join the fun by experiencing exotic locales such as Argentina or Thailand. Hopeful travelers can enter Bravo's "Fill a Jet Sweepstakes" via a Facebook app by creating up to three virtual jets-or joining a friend's jet-before the May 8 deadline. Once a "jet" has nine "passengers," it may be entered in the contest. The winner will be announced May 9, the same day the series premieres.

Ads Targeting Hispanics Finally Lose Their Bad 'Stache

Many media buying agency executives can recall the days when clients submitted TV commercials to air on Spanish-language networks that were either exact duplicates of those shot for English-language nets-only with poorly done Spanish voice-over dubbings-or spots filmed with English-speaking actors sporting exaggerated, stereotypical moustaches, under the assumption that facial hair would make them look like the Hispanic males the messages were targeting.
