Gas prices being what they are, a lot of us are foregoing the classic American road trip this summer and instead plan to indulge in the other classic American activity: Getting fat and watching television. Just in case you needed something to look forward to this August, we are pleased to remind you that “Whisker Wars” is premiering on IFC on August 5th. Summer = Done!
As you may recall, “Whisker Wars” is a reality show that delves deep into the world of competitive facial hair growing. While that sounds …slow, rest assured the show is a fascinating look into a world most of only know from ZZ Top. And those guys weren’t even professionals. In “Whisker Wars,” Thom Beers a.k.a. the man behind “Deadliest Catch” and “Ice Road Truckers” profiles a group of men as they travel the country in search of top honors in a host of competitions, from the National Beard and Mustache Championship in Bend, OR to the World Competition in Norway. Your summer plans are now set. No fill up at the gas tank required.
Here is a promo for the show to tide you over:
“Whisker Wars” premieres on IFC Friday, August 5 at 11 p.m. ET/ 10 p.m. PT
