According to Flier, Davis is a fish and chicken guy. You can see his handiwork on Davis' episode of MTV Cribs.

Team Chef Fitness shifts into high gear as they get ready for the start of the season. According to head chef, Tony Flier, the players' food needs vary a lot through out the season. During training camp - they'll need about 8000 calories a day to maintain their weight. That means lots of brown rice - but no sweets or junk ever.

Who needs instructions? New curler Maddy Leffler (not shown) watched curling in the Olympics and thought having the guys from TV teach her to curl was "pretty amazing." Says Leffler, "They make it look a lot easier than it really is - but it's fun!"
