EW readers largely supported Zach Anner back when he was competing to get a show on the OWN network (even amid that purported voting “scandal”). Well, a few months later and all of that behind him, Anner, who has cerebral palsy (the “sexiest of the palsies”) is set to debut his new travel show, Rollin’ With Zach, for which the first promo was released today.
In the video, viewable at the OWN site, it seems that Anner hasn’t lost an ounce of the wit and charm that first won our attention, votes, and hearts. He surfs and rides choppers, visits jelly bean factories and the set of The Price is Right, scales freaking mountains, and hits Las Vegas, all the while maintaining the personable ‘tude that won him the gig. (“They say ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,’ but how does anyone know what happens in Vegas if no one talks about what happened in Vegas when they go to Vegas — what?!”) In an age when Internet fame is fleeting (here’s looking at you, Lego mouth boy), I have no reservations in saying that I’m glad that Anner could be around for a long while.
Check out the trailer here, readers, and tell me, was this your favorite part, too? “Can you call me Iceman and I’ll call you Maverick?”
