Man Versus Food

Season 2 of Man v. Food premieres tonight on the Travel Channel at 9PM CST. If your unfamiliar with the show, it's basically your run of the mill food show where a guy goes to a city and partakes in the different local cuisines. It's just that the last segment involves the host being submitted to some type of eating challenge involving sheer capacity or heat tolerance. The host, Adam Richman, may be one of the most annoying men to be given a show, so I never really feel bad for the suffering he must go through.

Annoying host aside, the show is pretty easy to enjoy if you like seeing the limits people will push their GI tract to in order to get a free meal and/or t-shirt. Heck, sometimes you even get your picture put on a wall where your friends will never be able to find it without you being there to point it out.

I'll be live tweeting tonight's episode, which involves "a burger 300 times hotter than a jalapeno" in San Antonio. It will likely involve me being a hater and how much better I would be at the challenges had I not been stricken with deadly, arthritic gremlins.
