What is BIG?

It’s the puzzle that’s been on everyone’s mind at one time or another: How do you make a 700-gallon smoothie? Answer: With a 16-foot blender, of course.

Which leads to the question, um, where can you find a 16-foot blender?

Enter BIG!, a 16-part series in which host Frank Payne challenges his team of craftsmen, fabricators, builders, designers and artists to think big and to build even bigger each week. Whether it’s a 22-foot-tall popcorn popper or a 32-foot-long electric guitar, everyday objects appear in a whole new dimension every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT, starting June 1.

So, why make a giant blender? Because the BIG! team can, of course … with the help of 20 car batteries strung together. And Frank isn’t just standing around whistling “Dixie” as Wink, Lisa, Eric and Reverend Gadget battle their monumental challenge — he’s out in search of just the right tools to put his colossal creation to the test, such as a cherry picker and 1,200 pounds of bananas, 1,000 pounds of strawberries, 152 gallons of yogurt, 40 25-pound blocks of ice and 2 gallons of grenadine, in the blender case.
