  1. before they took that big bite imagine if a meteorite hit earth that moment. they looked so forward putting it inside their mouth lol

  2. Om! man that was a bomb lobster, my mouth was watering watching you both eating those huge things I loved it.

  3. How are you not fat Mr James, I expected you to gain weight when you eat so much of food but you are still so skinny.

  4. That lobster was not cooked perfect that should of been cooked u can clearly see its hard to bite over cooked

  5. Why is big lobster not prefered to smaller one? In my country, big lobster is actually sold with less price than the small one. Maybe the bigger has its meat drier

  6. That’s awesome boyz. Did you guys really meet up with each other. That’s so cool. Ya your a Canadian hahahaha. 👍🏻👍🏻

  7. Omg it’s on my bucket list now. Woooooooow that looked soooooooooooo good. Give some to Mika hahahahaha. He’s a cutie. I love the way you guys hooked up. 👍🏻👍🏻

  8. Looks mad! I just made a video on HOW TO actually catch lobsters, also tried a garlic-butter recipe for the cook up.

  9. It says 1kg 1200 for king lobster, so that 2.6kg cost more than 100 usd… dont think thats on the cheap side 🙁

  10. HUGE THANKS to ExpressVPN for offering all Food Ranger viewers 3 months free and 49% off their yearly package using this link: https://ExpressVPN.com/Thefoodranger . Travelers need ExpressVPN to stay safe online and to unblock any site. I personally use it for Netflix, even while at home in Canada, but also while traveling to unblock content and episodes that are geoblocked, and I also use it for security, because airport wifi and hotel wifi is often very insecure, leaving my data vulnerable. By connecting to one of their servers around the world, it’s just like my computer or phone is in that location, and all data sent while connected to their VPN is secure, safe, and private from others to see, so I know that my data won’t be hacked or looked at by others. Thanks so much for watching, and we have tons more videos coming up for you! Please leave me a comment below letting me know what you thought about this episode, thanks so much!!!

  11. 10:15 I’m used to Maine lobster and I know people eat the tomalley, but what kind of guts do you have smeared on that piece? I thought you were supposed to avoid eating brain/organs.
