Man v. Food is an American food reality television series. It premiered on December 3, 2008 on the Travel Channel. The program is hosted by actor and food enthusiast Adam Richman who travels across the United States. In every next show he goes to a new place and explores quite a few restaurants and takes up a food challenge.
This show is shot both at outdoor and indoor locations. The host of the show, Adam Richman himself does the anchoring too. It’s a very interactive show. The show begins with showing the city through which we will get a basic idea about the place. One special thing about his show is that, he not only talks to the chef or the person in charge of the hotel, but also to the customers there and we get to know their experiences too.
The best part is for the last. The food challenge he takes is always shown to the end of the show, which makes us kind of watch the whole show for the interesting challenge he does. There is involvement of the people around too, it gives a lively feel. The show wraps up with a fake press conference as if he won or lost some award for what he did. The food he goes for are especially hot and spicy foods usually in large quantities.
The show makes us want to try the restaurants and foods that are shown. Not only the food but also we get to know about the culture of the place too.
