Plot Synopsis

In this reboot of MAN V. FOOD, food lover, actor and restaurant business veteran Casey Webb crisscrosses America to uncover tasty treats and tackle the country's iconic eating challenges. In the premiere episode, Webb takes on a hometown challenge in New York City. After tasting a burger stuffed with french fries and fondue in Manhattan, and Brooklyn's innovative pizza on a pizza in a box made out of pizza, he heads to the Lunchbox in Staten Island for a special, multiple-choice challenge: a choice between taking on a 151-ounce milkshake, an eight-pound sloppy joe or eating six habanero ghost chili wings. The wings pack one million units of heat on the Scoville scale, which is 333 times hotter than the average bottle of supermarket hot sauce. Ultimately, Webb leaves his fate in the hands of the challenge creator who makes a random pick on Webb's behalf. Will it be the big, the bad or the burn? In the second premiere of the night, Webb travels to Milwaukee, WI, for some epic Brew City eats. These include a pitcher-sized bloody mary garnished with a whole fried chicken, a mouth-watering pork shank at a 100-year-old German restaurant and a four-and-a-half-pound Reuben sandwich challenge named "The Commish," for Milwaukee native and former MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, who appears in the episode to advise Webb.Throughout the 10-episode run, Webb also wages culinary combat in locales including: Chicago; Houston; Billings, MT; Charleston, SC; Sleepy Hollow, NY; New Orleans; Portland, OR; and Des Moines, IA.
On Monday, September 11, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, Travel Channel premiered the season finale of MAN V. FOOD. In the season ender, "Billings, MT," Casey travels to Billings, Montana, to tackle a one-hour steak challenge featuring a 78-ounce rib eye and two pounds of mashed potatoes, salad and bread.
