Joey Fatone to Open Hot Dog Cart Called "Fat Ones," 'Cause If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em


The men of 'N Sync are tearing up our hearts and our appetites this week. First, Justin Timberlake said bye, bye, bye to the internet's good graces by posting a controversial tweet about the BET Music Awards. And on Monday, Joey Fatone announced he'll be opening a hot dog cart. 

Fatone's semi-eponymous food cart "Fat One's Hot Dogs and Italian Ice" will open in August in the Florida Mall, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The name is a play on Fatone's last name and the fact that he is a bit larger than his 'N Sync peers. Now, and then. 

"Launching Fat One's at the Florida Mall, where I roamed as a middle school kid, felt like a perfect fit for our first location," he told the Orlando Sentinel. Aw, now we're imagining a baby-faced Fatone sauntering through the local mall like his frosted tips make him the middle school king of the land. 

Fatone is no stranger to the food industry — he's actually spent years working on television food shows. He starred on season three of Chopped All-Stars, and has also hosted several other food shows, Food Network reported. 

Don't worry, fame hasn't made him too high brow — his culinary icon is Guy Fieri and the first dish he learned to make was "mac 'n cheese from a box," according Food Network.

Will he serve some (dirty) pop at his stand too? All that matters is that you get hyped.
