Just Announced! 'Man v. Food' Returns to Travel Channel
The pop culture phenomenon returns with a new man, new food and the same epic battle!
Man v. Food, one of the most popular series on Travel Channel, will return with food lover, actor and restaurant business veteran Casey Webb picking up the baton. The new season begins production this week and is set to premiere in August. Webb continues the quest to find America’s most delicious, unique eats – taking on legendary eating challenges.
Original host and food fanatic Adam Richman astounded viewers as he braved dozens of incredible food dares for four seasons. Now, Webb will hit the road in search of hometown hot spots with the spiciest, largest and most amazing dishes on their menus.
"Man v. Food is a true, pop culture phenomenon that has inspired more than 1,000 new restaurant eating challenges in the last several years," says Courtney White, senior vice president of programming and development at the Travel Channel. "Travel Channel couldn’t resist getting back on the road, visiting cities across the United States, where our 'Man' will take on new unbelievable foods and flavors."
Since the age of 15, Webb has worked in kitchens, tended bar, and has managed restaurants on the Jersey Shore. Inspired by the original Man v. Food series, Webb and his friends seek out and enjoy taking on eating challenges just for fun. When he’s not working - he’s eating!
"I feel like my 'best self' in strange places," says Webb. "Learning from, and connecting with strangers, who are as excited about food as I am, is a major part of why I love traveling. Win or lose, I’m ready to to give it my all."
