MTV launches a brand new season of the foodie-favorite digital series, “Basic to Bougie,” with eight weekly episodes hosted by Tim Chantarangsu, Darren “Big Baby” Brand, and featuring special appearances by Justina Valentine. From sea urchins to sticky buns, pumpkins, plantains, and fake meats – these hosts are ready to try it all.
When it comes to food, is bougie really better? That’s what the hosts are here to find out! Each episode, Tim, Darren and Justina will be presented with three versions of a “basic” dish (ex: hot dogs) and three versions of a “bougie” dish (ex: caviar). After tasting everything, the hosts must then try to rank the foods in order from least to most expensive.
