This Exists: A Reality Show About Wiener's Circle

By Samantha Abernethy in Food on Mar 16, 2012 10:20PM


TruTV has made a reality television series based on the foul-mouthed hotdog stand Wiener's Circle, and apparently it premieres on Tuesday, March 20. We couldn't find any commercials or clips of the show from truTV, yet, but we assume it'll involve a fair number of "bleeps" and no chocolate milkshakes. Here's what it says on the truTV website.


Welcome to the wildest wiener stand this side of the Mississippi. When late night revelers on the south side of Chicago (Ed. Note: "South side," Tru TV? Wiener's Circle is as Lincoln Park as it gets.—CS) step into The Wiener's Circle, they get more than a late night bite, they get a blast of sass from a food-slinging crew that puts the "cuss" back in customer service! As if that wasn't enough, those customers who are willing to take the fun to the next level are invited to try their hands at outrageously irreverent and hilariously embarrassing challenges, with free hot dogs, burgers and fries as a prize. At The Wiener's Circle, you don't just get dinner, you get a show.

I just gotta know — what is the wildest wiener stand on the other side of the Mississippi?

**UPDATE 3/19: It seems they've been called out on saying "south side," and they've since changed it to "north side" on their website.
