Unwrapping the Gracious Professional

By: Fay

If you're a loyal viewer of one of our longest running series - Unwrapped - you might have noticed recently that we finally let our esteemed host Marc Summers out of that diner. No longer is he cooped up in a set diner- his Unwrapped scenes are now being shot all around town!

You can see the excitement in his face as he is simply thrilled to be out and about and interacting with the real world.  (Don't you know, we had him locked up all these years!)  Shooting in the field with Marc also reminds us just how big a celebrity he is, as people of all ages - toddlers to seniors - were jumping for a chance to meet him.  Whether it was from Double Dare, or What Would You Do?, or from his many years on Food Network, people everywhere are all smiles to see him.  I was lucky enough to tag along recently when Unwrapped was shooting at locations around New York City.  I was so impressed to find that Marc was the epitome of graciousness, taking time from his long, tiring day to talk to every one of those fans, sign autographs, snap photos, and give a bunch of viewers a memorable day in New York City.
