New Shows on Travel Channel to Watch in January

New year, new episodes.

Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Andrew and Adam LaSalle team up for hand saw practice. Minnesota

New year, who dis? It’s us — your favorite network, the Travel Channel, here to help you bring in 2018 the right way.

We’re taking you to some pretty cool places in the new year: Ecuador, Alaska and Iceland. There’s so much to see, do and EAT (Have you seen the Hot Cheetos burrito? We’ll wait.)

Now, let's dig in.

New Episodes:

Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Andrew and Dave Stadler team up for handsaw competition at Lumberjack demonstration. Hackensack, Minnesota

Bizarre Foods | Premieres Jan. 23 at 9|8c

As the cold, wintry weather continues, it only makes sense to kick this season of Bizarre Foods off in Minnesnowta — erm, Minnesota. In the Land of 10,000 Lakes and even more lumberjacks, host Andrew Zimmern is on the hunt for the ultimate Minnesotan fare. Hint: He also finds a giant statue of Paul Bunyan (because, Minnesota).

Featured drink at Sam's Ocean View in Honolulu, Hawaii, as seen on Travel Channel's Food Paradise.

Food Paradise | Sundays at 8|7c

From coast to coast, Food Paradise serves up the very best cuisine America has to offer. Hop on the tasty train: It’s headed for a 69-year-old Chicago hot dog spot, Tinseltown’s cheesiest burger joint and an Alaskan feast under the Northern Lights. Put on your stretchy pants and prepare to be inspired!

Expedition Unknown | Wednesdays at 9|8c

Look at that! — Josh Gates takes us on his wildest adventures yet this season on Expedition Unknown, investigating Stonehenge’s origins, Butch Cassidy’s lost loot and the Nazis that escaped to Argentina after WWII. Josh, please take us with you next time.

If only there were a way to see a sneak peek at the new season… (hint: it’s here).

New Specials:

Mysteries at the Museum | Thursdays at 9|8c

Don Wildman traces the footsteps of those involved in some of history’s most captivating mysteries: the Lincoln assassination, the infamous Battle of Little Big Horn and the Manhattan Project. But he’s not just doing the research, he’s truly living history. You’re not going to want to miss these very special episodes of Mysteries at the Museum.

Sturgis: Eat, Drink, Play | Premieres Jan. 14 at 10|9c

Not everyone gets the chance to experience the annual 10-day Sturgis Motorcycle Rally — until now, that is. This event has it all (and we mean all): insane motorcycles, beard competitions, incredible street food. So start your engines, kids. It’s time to hit the road.

Giant America | Premieres Jan. 15 at 9:30|8:30c

Comedian Tom Green heads to Travel Channel with a little help from some very big — you could even say giant — pals. His first stop? The State Fair of Texas to see how a 55-foot-tall cowboy comes to life. You know, because everything’s bigger in Texas.
