Sad... And here he had this successful(?) show and whatnot. You just never can know I guess that something is still bringing someone down to that point.

I've only seen a few episodes of his show but I liked them. He not only showed the cuisine of the country/region he visited but also interacted with the locals and got to know them and let the audience know the local culture as well. His show seemed to be more than a mere food show. He also was charismatic and seemed like a classy person. So yeah, it's a shame he died and even a bigger shame he committed suicide. He had a family even. Who knows what was going on in his head.

He was pretty famous and his death has been reported all over the media, so I assume his show was successful.
