Bobbin’ Around is finally HERE!
Now that we’ve officially launched WOW Presents Plus (have you signed up yet???) there’s a plethora of new (and old!) shows you can watch. One of those shows is the incredible and hilarious Bobbin’ Around!
The show stars Bob the Drag Queen and her assistant Luis Alvarez Schacht as they, well, Bob around the world!
But what exactly will they be talking about? Is it a travel show? Is it a documentary series? What is it?
We caught up with Bob and Luis to talk about what you can expect in Bobbin’ Around episodes, a lengthy tangent on double-stuffed Oreos, & so much more! Check it out below!
Chelsea Perrotty: What has been your favorite part of filming Bobbin’ Around?
Bob the Drag Queen: You know, we filmed it in two sections. We film it while you’re working and at the studio. I’ll be honest one of my favorite moments that we filmed – we don’t ever really look at the videos again, they just take up space in my phone. So when we look at the videos it reminds us of everything that we did, all the shenanigans.
Luis Alvarez Schacht: So you know when your parents call you and they are like “so how was brazil” and you’re like “it was fine.” So now we look back and we’re like oh crap! We really did do a lot of stuff.
Bob: That really was the exact conversation I had with my mom about Brazil.
Luis: And then your family gets mad because you went to brazil and they’ve never been to brazil so – what did you do? And I’m you know like “I ate food.” and “I went on a mountain” and it’s like now when we go back we are like “oh yeah we really did go on that mountain.”
C: Thats cool, though. It’ll be a good way for your family to see what you did!
Bob: AND this way I wont have to talk to them
Luis: “How was Brazil?” You send her a link to your account.
Bob: All you gotta do is pay 3.99 a month and here’s a discount code! (laughter)
C: Whats one of your favorite behind the scenes moments that happened during filming?
Luis: Oh I fall every episode.
Bob: Yeah, Luis is…
Luis: My favorite moment is I don’t know I’m going to fall and it just happens. Until the last episode where we found a safe way for me to sit down. I’m not cool anymore.
C: What do you want fans to know about your show?
Bob: Well I want you to know that it’s not an actual travel show so if you’re tuning in like “I’m going to learn about Brazil” … you’re not. There’s little to no actual valuable information on the show.
Luis: You do get to experience parts of different countries. You know we talk about candies that you get in the UK, this is… it’s our point of view of visiting these countries.
C: What moment specifically are you excited for fans to see on the show?
Luis: I talk about a horrible experience I had on a mountain in Hawaii
Bob: Luis is in terrible shape. Also, spoiler alert… Luis dies in Episode 3.
C: But he gets ressurected in episode 4, no worries. Is there any moment that didn’t make it into the show that you would have liked to have had make it?
Bob: You know we forget a lot of the stuff that we did until we see it so…
Luis: We shot each episode for about an hour and that gets cut down to about 8 minutes?
Bob: So there is about 35 minutes I think should be in the show that isn’t actually in the show.
Luis: Bob and I go on a lot of tangents not related at all to the show.
C: What snack would you recommend people to eat while watching Bobbin’ Around?
Bob: You dirty bitch. My favorite snack to eat, though I don’t eat it very often is Oreos. Oreos with milk. On a curious note, if you aren’t eating double stuffed Oreos just don’t even half ass it. Like who is the person out there buying you know- single stuffed Oreos going ‘I am satisfied with my purchase.’ I mean, who are you? I’d rather have no Oreos.
Luis: Can one of everything be an option? I have one of everything to snack on at all times.
C: Bob, what would you say to someone if you saw them buying single stuffed Oreos in the store?
Bob: I wouldn’t say anything. I would just look at them. Roll my eyes. I’ll just remember you’re the guy who bought single stuffed Oreos. When someone shows you who they really are – believe them.
Luis: My question is if you go to a guys house – they only have single stuffed Oreos. Do you keep dating them or no?
Bob: I’m going to finish the date we are on – for sure.
C: What if you could convince them to switch?
Bob: I would just bring over some double stuffed oreos. And then I will gauge their reaction. … Like no bitch, are you even enough? That’s the real question.
Luis: You know where I would say no? If I walk in and see those nasty flavored oreos – like the watermelon, I’m out.
Bob: Oh. No. I’m not here for your birthday cake oreos. I’m not here for your mint oreos. Just eat your double-
Luis: NO! The mint ones are amazing.
Bob: This is a falsehood. This is a lie the media tells you.
Luis: But not that watermelon Oreo. I’m not here for the watermelon. Or a random cotton candy oreo.
Bob: I’m only here for double stuffed Oreos.
C: We tried the mystery flavor the other day. Don’t try them they are gross. Not as bad as we though they’d be, but not good.
Luis: Oh! Do you want to know what I think the mystery flavor is? I think it’s Fruity Pebbles.
C: Yeah we came to the conclusion that it’s either Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops.
Luis: Oh my gosh Fruit Loops!
Bob: The mystery is why are we still selling it?
Luis: I think Fruit Loops makes more sense because Fruit Loops is a bigger company than Fruity Pebbles.
C: They have to be because they are both owned by Nabisco!
Luis: We are the same person! I had my roommate google all of that.
Bob: I can’t believe people put money down on a mystery flavored oreo.
Luis: Well they have mystery flavored like those lollipops.
Bob: Yeah I don’t fuck with mystery flavors.
Luis: Oh! Airheads has the best mystery flavor.
Bob: Oh. that is good.
Luis: Can that be my snack answer? Mystery flavored airheads?
