'Riding Shotgun With Zach Anner' Debuts

Web celeb's new travel show says 'O Canada' in first episode

'Riding Shotgun With Zach Anner' Debuts

In his new travel show Riding Shotgun With Zach Anner, web celeb Zach Anner and three of his pals pile in a van to see America (and a soupçon of Canada). Anner’s the first to admit: “We have no fucking clue what we’re doing.”

The first episode of the online show premiered yesterday, and it only reinforces what you already knew: Anner – the UT grad who won over millions when he auditioned to host a reality show for the Oprah Winfrey Network – is a supremely likable dude.

The Chronicle’s Dan Solomon spoke with Anner in August about his Oprah experience and the new web show:

"I didn't know that [my audition tape] would affect people until the audition video blew up – I'd just been trying to follow my passion. There's a part of me that's so proud of that," he says. Which leads to the central conflict of being Zach Anner, hero to Reddit weirdos and inspiration to Oprah-lovers both. "I want to make sure that people know that I can only be myself – I can't be a spokesperson for people with disabilities, because everybody has a completely different experience. I'm glad that I'm able to inspire parents to see one way to deal with it, but at the same time, I tell a lot of dirty jokes."`
