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, December 4, 2017 from 9-10pm ET/PT, Travel Channel premiered the second season of MAN V. FOOD, debuting back-to-back new episodes. This season, Webb attempts the unthinkable by taking on edible encounters that would make most people run and hide -- including a fire and ice challenge -- with scorching hot popcorn measuring over 1 million Scoville units (the scale that measures a pepper's heat) and a 64-ounce frozen hot chocolate near Louisville, Kentucky. Webb also takes on a 29-inch New York-style pizza in St. Louis, that's so big he can't tackle it alone; and in Nashville, Tennessee, he goes for the signature spicy delight, "hot chicken," with tenders slathered in a concentrated hot sauce made with Carolina reapers, scorpion peppers and ghost peppers. In the season opener (9pm), Webb heads to Los Angeles, where he'll try an epic burger that has been crossed with a pizza and some savory chicken and waffles that have taken the town by storm. At Genkiyaki, Webb will pioneer the Zombie Burrito challenge to be the first to try to demolish the 2.5-pound spicy behemoth laden with ghost pepper-fueled death sauce and zombie sauce to earn a place on the Wall of Zombie. On the night's second premiere (9:30pm), Webb travels to historic Boston for some epic New England eats: a burger topped with Thanksgiving favorites; a 2.5-pound, plate-sized prime rib; and a 4.5-pound Irish breakfast challenge at Flann O'Brien's Pub. Throughout the season, Casey will also pursue culinary triumph in Boise, Idaho; Daytona, Florida; Grand Rapids, Michigan; the Ozarks; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; San Diego; Seattle and Burlington, Vermont.
