Addictive from my first viewing but got repetitive too quickly
5 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this programme while I was staying in a cottage near Swansea last summer and the first episode I saw was the one where Adam Richman visits various barbecue food restaurants around Kansas and attempts to chomp down a massive sandwich containing seven different barbecue meats. A little while afterwards, I tuned into Dave (an entertainment channel in the UK) for further episodes and I was hooked, in spite of my parents disapproving of this programme (thank goodness I no longer live with them) due to my mum finding it obscene and my dad feeling sorry for people in third world countries suffering from malnutrition while Adam had the opportunity to participate in challenges that involved him eating colossal servings of food throughout the USA.

About six months after watching my first episode, I began to go off it because Dave kept repeating the same episodes over and over again so I eventually tuned out.

Overall this was an addictive programme to begin with but it rapidly became repetitive. 7/10.
