SEASON 1 CASTING
DINNER BUDGET BATTLE
Growing up in a Trinidadian family, Haile was always around food. However, as a kid he was often shooed out of the kitchen to stay out of the way of the grownups.
After this Brooklyn Boy moved to Los Angeles, the reality of the cost of food hit him like a ton of bricks. He spent the first few months in The City of Angels talking to his mom about cooking, savings and tricks.
One of his favorite cooking hacks is the marked-down produce basket at the farmers market.
He also knows what days to buy certain proteins because of how they'll be marked down for freshness. Haile always cooks it right away and it's always incredible.
Haile is working to make his comic book about growing up in Brooklyn into a cartoon, which lead to his friend commissioning a puppet that looks like the main character. Halie has gone viral with Aloe who often brings up great eats.
