Artist and restaurateur Stretch signs deal for his own TV show

Restaurateur and visual artist Jeff Rumaner, better known around town as the larger-than-life character Stretch, is finally getting his own TV show on Spike TV. Yesterday, the Kansas City Business Journal‘s Krista Klaus reported that Stretch had signed a deal to host a Spike TV show. No details about the show, though. And there’s a reason for that.

“I can’t say anything about the TV show,” says Rumaner from his cell phone. “It’s Spike’s show, and they’re controlling all of the details.”

But who will be running Grinders and Grinders West while Stretch is off becoming a bigger media darling?
