YoBeat Most Awesome Chef: Party Time Nate vs Jerm

On the back deck of the Ark, two culinary titans met vie for Yobeat stardom (as well as $10). Party Time Nate, who’s been twice defeated by Peter Line (Watch: the Seattle Hot Dog Cook off | The Portland Coffee Challenge) was hungry (no pun intended) for the win. Meanwhile, Yobeat cook off-newcomer, Jeremiah “Jerm” Paquette was recently released from jail and eager to make sure his Internet celebrity status was not damaged by a little time in the clink, or a loss. Using four secret ingredients, Nate and Jerm set out to make one amazing entree each and see who would be the next Yobeat Most Awesome Chef.

Jesse Gouveia’s Park Footage: The Review

For some reason, we felt Jesse’s park footage needed a little more special attention than the other parts from the This Must be the Place crew. A little good old fashioned ribbing, if you will. And since Connor lives in Jerm’s basement right now, what better opportunity to let Jerm get all his aggression out on our poor friend Jesse? At least the idea seemed funny. So we did it. What can we say, it’s the third rain day in a row.

By now you’ve probably watched the actual edit on Facebook, but if not, and you’re still interested, here ya go.

Find Jerm and Win!

Where in the world is Jerm? We know, but we’re not telling. If you can figure it out though, you will not only have the chance to tell him all those mean things you’ve been commenting to his face, but win free stuff from Windells!

Stay tuned later this week as we release Jerm’s location. The first person to find him and take a photo with him, will be spotlighted on our blog, website, Facebook, and Twitter account (ya know, all those social media hot spots). Most importantly, YOU WIN STUFF! This winter we will be giving away apparel, gear, discounts, and more! You don’t want to miss out. Keep a close eye on all those social networking apps, because once the scavenger hunt is on, you won’t want to miss out.

Commenting Back in 2011

It’s a new year. It’s cold outside. The sky is gray and the sun sets early. There’s no sunshine in my life. The only snow I see is cold, gray and laying flat on the sidewalk. I’m tried, overworked and I drink too much. Bitter anger is the new cool. Happiness is for losers. Stupidity too. Welcome to 2011, welcome to a new year of Commenting Back.


Jerm commented:

“Flood, always the sickest. But did anyone else notice how creepy his hand looked?”

Jerm, if you’re going to be a new Yobeat pseudo-celebrity whatever the fuck contributor don’t write such piss poor comments. It took multiple grammatical corrections to get this thing up to par. And for fucks sake man, Shane Flood’s hand looked creepy? Really? You mean the grown ass man who wears shirts with Nuns fucking their bloody vaginas with crucifixes both in and out of his homemade coffin bed is a bit creepy?


Jimbo said:

“I like the video… Too bad L1 is kinda whack. Remember the days when Nima Jalali wasn’t a total homo and actually snowboarded once in a while? Those were the days. He used to be my favorite snowboarder, now I feel like the only snowboarding-related thing he does is fashion ads.”

Remember the days when Michael Jordan was kick ass at basketball? Or when Babe Ruth was the homerun king? Fuck man, those were the days. Before those guys got old, found new interests and turned into “homos”. Listen Jim, Nima broke his fucking knee after filming the part of his life. He took a year off, started a company, and realized 99% of the guys he grew up with had quit and moved on. He’s still filming a bit, but he’s onto new things. And fashion ads? Well how would you market an outerwear line, or glasses/softgoods line? Seriously Jim, either read a book or stop commenting.


Nasty Nate wrote:

“This is the coolest thing the XGames ever did. Louif’s part is ridiculous, as are Sauves’ and Brisse’s. Sexton was a little too starstruck competing against his surrogate father’s Simon and JP. /all members of the Forum 8 are washed up. Simon prayed for the win a bit too much. Hout’s still got that fire in his belly. I’d love to see his falling footage too though. Everyone’s got those 20 disasters on lock though. Stuntin’.”

I don’t need to say anything here. Nasty Nate, two thumbs up pal.

And Jimbo redeemed himself with:

“Oh yeah, and Jeremy Jones should win an award for biggest homo of the year. Bad enough he shuv-its for every trick, but then he has the ESPN theme music as his song? BOO.”

I was honestly worried that Jim couldn’t tie his own shoes until I saw this gem. Way to go man. But seriously, how about we stop using “homo” to describe everyone? You never know man, you could be at the bar tonight, toss out a “homo” here and there and wake up with a broken jaw, prolapsed asshole and a bunch of hairy chested bald men laughing at your inability to stand.


Justin chirped in:

“Brooke, you should have put your name instead of hiding behind Admin. I love hearing a fat wakeboarder tell me what really matters in snowboarding.”

This Just In: Brooke Geery is no longer fat or a wakeboarder! Two weeks ago I ran into boss lady Brooke at New York’s JFK airport. She was like 50 pounds lighter than the Brooke I saw in October. I bet she is nearly back to her college form, you know, back when pro shreds were all about her. Anyway, she also quit wakeboarding. Basically because we were all a bunch of dicks about it, and I dunno, maybe ‘cuz that company was super dumb anyway.
