Default Man vs Food

I happened upon this show on theTravel Channel before the super bowl on Sunday. They were doing a marathon on this show. Adam Richman is cool as hell. And dammit that boy can eat some food. He ate the 72 ounce steak with all the fixins in less than 30 mins. ( You get 1 hour to try it and get your T-shirt and all).

On one episode he had a partner with him to try to eat the 13 lb. pizza. Both were struggling after 20 mins, but Adam woulda made it but his partner ran out of stomach to finish his half..

Anyway he didn't fail many of the contests he entered.. And some were downright crazy..

You couldn't tell by looking at him that he can eat like that. I mean he's a big guy but he ain't that big. Plus before he enters the contests he checks out the local eateries and chows down on some great looking food..

you can watch his contests in time lapsed from this link..

I love that show Man Vs. Food I have watched a few of them its a good show. Nothing beats Good Eats though for a food show if you ask me.

Also has anyone seen Three Sheets? Its the best drinking show ever.

I dig that show! He's pretty funny so that adds to the show.

He is kind of a dork. But I saw him fail a few times on different ones. He tells you he is not a competitive eater, just a guy who likes to eat.

Yeah, I usually can't watch people doing eating contests. Escpecially hot dogs. Geez, the one who wins has to just stuff the dogs in their mouth and chew, then stick the bun in water and slurp it down. That kinda grosses me out. But I like watching someone chow down and not make a complete mess of themselves. Have a little dignity and try not to wear the food. LOL.

Another of my favorites on the Food Network is DDD, Diners, Drive ins, and Dives. Man they show some great looking food. Me and my son watch that at night and look at each other and say " oh yeah" That sandwich wouldn't last long in front of me..
