  • Win a date with Tony! After deciding to take one person to a country of their choosing, Anthony is in way over his head. What was supposed to be a boring and uneventful adventure turns out to be nothing like what Anthony expected it to be.

    This is definitely one of Anthony's finest episodes. This episode take Anthony to Saudi Arabia. All Anthony takes with him are his western notions and stereotypes. With his helpful guide, Anthony embarks upon the side of saudi arabia most westerners never have the to opportunity to see. This episode is filled with fun and laughter (surprisingly), and shows people the real laid back and hospitable side of arabs.

    Anthony dines on lamb, lizard, camel and other saudi dishes. His displeasure to "dig in" slowly changes after a few bites. He goes (or is taken) to various sides of saudi arabia to dine on different kinds of food, in different kinds of environments. It was surprising to see the wealth of food and company at the dinner table.

    Saudi Arabia also has a fun side, whether its shopping or driving 4X4's up sand dunes, Anthony is sure to show you the side of Saudi Arabia most people thought never existed.
