I am OliverBabish, the creator n' star of Binging with Babish - help me choose the next movie/tv food to recreate, and of course, AMA!
Hey /r/IAmA! I'm Andrew Rea, aka OliverBabish (Proof!). I have a little YouTube series called Binging with Babish, where I recreate the foods from movies and television. I'm super-grateful to the Reddit community for helping me gain an audience over the past couple months, and have always enjoyed interacting with viewers to evolve the show and come up with ideas for new episodes! Now I'm here to not only determine the subject of my next episode, but to answer any questions about my show, cooking, my deepest fears and regrets, Frasier trivia, the birds and the bees, beards, and going bald gracefully! AMA!
The highest-voted episode suggestion will be shot this weekend and posted next week! Subject to if I feel like doing it, of course.
EDIT 2PM EST: Holy wow, my inbox asplode!! I am a serial question-answerer, so if you don't hear back right away don't worry, I am still here and still answering questions!
EDIT 5:30PM EST: Oh my god my hands hurt. I'm still goin strong though! Do not hesitate to keep writing, I ain't going anywhere, and you guys are the friggin best with the suggestions, ideas, and kind words. Love you guys.
EDIT 6:15PM EST: Okay I'm starting to drink some, so expect the answers to become more interesting, and feel free to ask more personal, brutal questions.
EDIT 11:00PM EST: I'M NEVER STOPPING. Okay I'm running out of steam. But I'm still going!
EDIT 1:15AM EST: Okay that's it papa bear's crashing. I'm gonna keep answering questions tomorrow so please feel free to keep writing, but for now, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the laughs, the insight, the incredible kindness. You guys, your comments and conversation are a huge motivator behind the show, and you've energized me for whatever comes next – I'm gonna call it early and say that Ratatouille wins the day for next episode with Freddy's Ribs in a close second. Luckily, next weekend I'll be headed to my dear friend's home in the burbs, and homeboy's got a smoker. So expect both in the coming two weeks! Night everybody.
EDIT 9AM EST: HHGNNHhhfff I'M UP I'm up. Jesus I wrote nearly 600 comments yesterday, what was in that drink you guys gave me? I see I'm still gettin questions, and I'll be answering them once I get out the shower!
