Man Vs. Food
Adam Richman is a food enthusiast to say the least. This one-time actor and Yale graduate has a TV show on the Travel Channel called "Man Vs. Food". Richman takes a camera crew with him across the country and samples cuisines from different regions. When I say "samples cuisines," I use the term lightly.
This weekend I watched him eat an insane stack of pumpkin pancakes from Portland, Oregon, a crazy huge cold-cut sandwich from Columbus, Ohio and a 72 ounce steak in Amarillo, Texas. It's not always about quantity with Adam, though. He's also into spicy hot foods. I've seen him eat habenero fritters (batter mixed with habenero peppers and then deep fried) like they were ice cream. And yeah, he got his picture on the Wall of Flame for tackling that feat.
So if you get the chance, check the fellow out. A new episode comes on every Wednesday night at 10. Repeats are on all the time. It's worth a half an hour of your time.
