Tonight a new show will premiere on Discovery channel called "Bar Hunters." On Oct. 21, Examiner was given the chance to talk to the host Tom Powers about the show and what fans can expect. He will be going around helping people find the perfect place to start their own bar and pursue their dreams. He will help them out in finding somewhere that will be a profitable business and not just a party.
Here is what Tom had to say:
What gave you the idea for the show 'Bar Hunters'?
It wasn't my idea. I was approached by the production company. They chose me as host given my experience working in the restaurant and bar industry.
Will you be traveling around the country?
Bar Hunters goes to large and small communities across the United States. Hopefully with the help of Discovery we will go around the world.
Do you work with them after they get the bar open?
Out of friendship and professional respect I try to always make myself available. It's not a part of the show now, but it could be in later seasons if it gets another go.
How many episodes did you film?
6 episodes are in this season of BAR HUNTERS. The first two will air tonight, back-to-back, beginning at 10 PM E/P on the Discovery Channel.
Are you hoping for a season 2 of the show?
I hope to do seasons 8-10. But at this point nothing has been announced for another season.
