|English term or phrase: first person to try tomato|
|Has anyone heard of this idiom? Can someone please explain?|
They hope to use their influence in doing some promotion work for figure skating events and become "the first person to try tomato."
|First person with the courage to try something new|
A tomato is very different from other fruits and vegetables; the first person to try (taste) one had no way of knowing whether it would taste good, be poisonous, etc. I'm not sure what that has to do with figure skating, but I assume the people in question are trying to promote the sport in a new and different way.

|Thanks, everyone. I did not want to use this idiom because it is only found on Chinese websites. Since most of you here understand it, I think I am just going to use it.|
