Full Frontal goes Girl Fieri

Samantha Bee only gets more fun when she goes off set and on location on Full Frontal, and her journey this week offers a valuable view into how immigrants constitute the backbone of the restaurant industry. Many are undocumented, and sending money back home, so they often do the food-industry jobs no one wants to do (“Why can’t people stop clogging restaurant toilets?” Bee wants to know), making them indispensable to pretty much everything Americans eat. We hear the inspiring story of Christina Martinez, who worked her way up from a dishwasher to own Philadelphia. Then Top Chef judge Padma Lakshmi stops by to underline what Bee is saying about immigration, and also to judge Bee’s half-hearted Top Chef attempt. It’s all worth a look over at YouTube today.

Michelle Yeoh, professional ass-kicker

You might recognize Michelle Yeoh as the domineering tiger matriarch in Crazy Rich Asians, but for us Hong Kong natives, Yeoh has been a professional on-screen ass-kicker for a quarter century. Yeoh is known for doing all her stunt work, and the above compilation is a six-minute sampling of her glory. All hail. [Kevin Pang]
