Jen Royle explains to Jerry what “The Taste” is all about. (Jerry Thornton)
For this week’s episode of “Unsportsmanlike” I have the distinct pleasure of landing the beguiling Jen Royle. The former reporter covering the Baltimore Ravens and Orioles, the Red Sox, WEEI and Herald Radio host and cookbook author is nothing less than THE reality TV breakout star of 2014. If you’re not watching her on ABC’s “The Taste” every Thursday night at 8, you’re missing out.
Jen is a hilariously profane and messy home cook let loose in a kitchen filled with professional chefs. She swears. She loses stuff. She gets into fights with people and cuts herself. In short, she’s pure Masshole. But so far she’s done more than survived; she’s stolen the show.
Listen as she gives me the skinny on the behind the scenes, how she got into this and whether or not something is up between her and her French chef mentor.
Enjoy and bon apetit.
