If you’ve never heard of Paul Wahlberg, you may soon!
Paul is the chef brother of Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, and he’s recently opened a new burger joint in Boston called Wahlburgers.
Both Mark and Donnie who have a financial stake in the restaurant are trying to persuade their brother into turning the restaurant into the site of a new reality series. Paul is reportedly iffy about the decision, because he fears it will turn the restaurant into a joke.
Mark Wahlberg explains,
“I’ve always said if there’s one really talented person in the family it’s him. He’s been a chef for 20, 30 years… But he doesn’t eat good food. All he eats is burgers.
“Everyone thinks it’s a great idea that we should do this kind of docu-drama show about the making of the business, but when you say reality show, he thinks Jersey Shore, which is not a good thing.
“He is so passionate about everything that he does; it’s all about the customer, it’s all about the quality of food, he loves the town that he lives in. He is such a proud, honest, straight, hard-working guy and that’s what we want the show to be about… It’s really about business and building that brand and putting our family to work.”
