Two dudes: Matt Zaller and Jordan Morris. Their chariot: a 2012 Toyota Camry. Their mission: Tour de Thrillist, the five-city, 18-day road trip remixed with sweet Airbnb digs and mano-a-mano challenges all along the way, some involving way more food than a human should consume, others involving…well, bulldozers.
First stop on the route to crowning a Road Trip Champ: the City of Angels, where Matt and Jordan get a one-on-one cooking lesson at Firenze Osteria with resident Italian stallion, Fabio Viviani. From there, the guys roll over to The Spare Room -- The Hollywood Roosevelt's gentleman’s gaming lounge -- for a bowl-off atop hand-polished lanes flown in from
clap, clap, clap, clap deep in the heart of Texas. Want to see which dude talks turkey, and which probably should’ve used the bumper lanes? Watch the recap vid above, and be sure to keep following along, because the next stop is Sin City.
Oh, and the best part? You could take the exact same road trip yourself. Just enter to win the Tour de Thrillist sweepstakes, and you might yourself find retracing our guys' steps en route to your own personal glory. Bulldoze on that tonight.
