Wednesday, August 18, 2010: Man v. Food

Wednesday, August 18, 2010: <I>Man v. Food</I>

The adorable eating machine known as Adam Richman is heading to Indianapolis tonight to chow down on some food. Specifically, he'll be tackling the Big Ugly Burger Challenge at Bub's Burger Ice Cream, which is basically eating four one-and-a-half-pound burgers that have been smothered in a stick of butter. Not even exaggerating. Six pounds of meat. One stick of butter. It's the artery-clogging event of the evening. Oh, and he'll also be snacking on some delicious-looking strawberry pie.

Still, what makes this show entertaining isn't necessarily the challenges (which are interesting/horrifying) but Richman himself. He always puts on a brave face, adds a bit of comedic wit and seems to have an endless enthusiasm for foods of all kinds. There's a reason that I keep watching this show on a weekly basis while other travel food shows (aside from No Reservations) are more of catch-as-I -can kind of thing. While I probably have a better chance of actually visiting most of the locales on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy Fieri is more than I can really handle.

The show airs on the Travel Channel tonight at 9 PM. There's also Top Chef on Bravo at 10. It's a good night for vicarious eating!
