An obnoxious contestant on hit TV show Come Dine With Me, who made a squeamish vegetarian cry, said he found watching the episode "hilarious".
Walsall jeweller Christian Woodall, aged 41, clashed with beautician Georgina Smith on the Channel 4 show where guests host dinner parties.
The show, which aired last Sunday night, also featured part-time farmer Jennifer Brack, from Hednesford, and company boss Paul Wigfield.
Christian, who lives with girlfriend Karen Rawlings, 39, in Walsall, watched the episode with about 100 people at The Plough and Harrow pub in Chester Road, Aldridge.
He said: "I thought it was hilarious. I was watching it with about 100 pals and they all had beaming smiles when they left.
"They thought my one-liners were hilarious and thought it was brilliant as an entertainment show."
The show saw veggie Georgina telling Christian he had "a bit of a belly" within minutes of meeting him, while Christian later said he does not consider vegetarians "normal" and came across as domineering.
He then made Georgina cry after getting infuriated by her dietary requirements and telling her he did not care if she went home hungry.
At one point he watched her eat a roast potato before telling her it was cooked in goose fat.
The jeweller, who works at Hayes Jewellers in Bridge Street, Walsall, said he took the whole thing in his stride, and held no malice towards Georgina or the producers for his portrayal.
"I think everyone should just take it as a bit of fun, it's just a show," he said. "There are bigger things to worry about in the world. I have no worries at all, I was just myself."
He added: "I'm very black and white, and very direct. At least people know where they stand."
Mr Woodall received only one point from Georgina after cooking her stodgy pasta bake for her — the main ingredient being a tin of condensed tomato soup before covering it in vegetarian unfriendly parmesan cheese. Miss Smith later said he was "lucky" to even get one point.
Guests Paul and Jennifer came across as laid-back and affable. Jennifer won the challenge because of her good homemade grub, including a steak pie made with a cow she reared herself.
