Our Fearless Pantsless Leaders

World of Wonder The World According to Wonder Shelf Life Shameless Self Promotion Randy Barbato Press New York Daily News Fenton Bailey

This rarely seen photo of World of Wonder honchos Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey caught with their pants down is just one of many surprising images in the giant coffee table book The World According to Wonder, which drops next week, February 5. The book is all about celebrity, pop culture, and the rocky rise of the onetime pop stars who founded the World of Wonder production company at the very beginning of reality TV. The nearly 400-page book is filled not only with eye-candy photos, but also often-hilarious behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the partners’ triumphs, failures, and often hilarious adventures over 21 years of professional experience. “We’re a production company that’s focused on people considered by many to be marginal or outcasts,” Barbato told the New York Daily News. “We’ve seen a whole new class of celebrities created by reality TV,” said Bailey. “This book is a celebration of that. Some people say reality TV is the end of western civilization. I don’t agree. It could be its finest hour.” (Order your book on Amazon)
