Bigmouth strikes again! Chef, memoirist, dedicated shit-talker and Rollins grad Eddie Huang has had a big two weeks since we put him on our cover (“Huang time coming,” Feb. 27): The self-dubbed “Human Panda” gave a rapturously received TED talk, then lost his TED fellowship for leaving the conference to hang out with porn star Asa Akira, then was quoted comparing the TED conference to “Scientology summer camp” – OK, actually, that was all in one day. Two days later he turned 31 and celebrated the completion of the first season of his travel-and-eating series on Vice.com, Fresh off the Boat (sort of a No Reservations Jr. with Wu-Tang refs instead of Bourdain’s beloved Stooges). Will the ex-Orlando kid talk about his good old college days slinging pharmaceuticals and throwing padlock punches? We sure hope so. Whatever happens, he’s sure to piss off somebody. – Jessica Bryce Young
