The Chicken Connoiseur Lands Himself A Show On Channel 4!

After dominating the internet with his viral chicken shop series 'The Pengest Much', Elijah Quashie aka The Chicken Connoisseur will be taking over the world of TV with his own show on Channel 4!


The new channel 4 show, named 'The Peng Life', is set to show the YouTube star “hunting down the most-wanted things his city has to offer and he’ll sample them at two different price points – street and elite level."



In a press release from Channel 4 it continues, “From food to fashion, he’ll be sorting the superior from the sub-par and giving his adjudication on which tested items are deserving of being titled The Pengest,”


Quashie will also be joined by some celebrity friends to "review some stuff and to find out what the pengest luxuries are in their life.”




The Chicken Connoissuer first rose to fame in December 2016 after his online series 'The Pengest Munch' went viral, catapulting him to the forefront of the food critic industry. 'The Pengest Much saw the YouTube star review a different London chicken shop in each episode, judging the food and overall dining experience in search of the best fried chicken in the capital. 


Speaking on his new Channel 4 venture, Quashie said, “On YouTube I do the chicken ting, but now on Channel 4 I’m reviewing everything! The cheapest stuff to the most expensive stuff. Basically the deadest stuff you’ll ever find to the most expensive, baller status stuff. I’ll see if it’s worth the moolah. Hold tight.”
