Great Host - Bad Show
15 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a Food Network junkie, so I'll try any food-related show once. So, when I saw the Travel Channels Man v. Food promos, I was dubious but knew I had to give it it's day in court.

First of all, I was prepared to hate the show and it's pudgy host. There's something so sadly pathetic about trying to present an over-weight man who gorges himself at food eating challenges as macho.

However, I like the host. Adam Richman is a very personable, charming individual. Which makes me dislike the show even more because it's all about this guy slowly killing himself by gorging on pounds and pounds of the most craptastic food America has to offer. Frankly, I think he's better than this and I hope his agent can swing a better deal for him fairly soon.

As for the type of food culture this show glorifies, is this really what the 2nd fattest country (Go Mexico!) in the world needs to be watching? Worse yet, MvF is shown in other countries. Yet another reason for the world to poke us in our flabby sides and laugh at us. Judging by this show, gone are the days when Americans used to have pride in themselves and a bit of self-discipline.

Man v. Food, much like Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives and that Paula Dean "cooking" show, is just food porn. How many different ways can meat, cheese, fries and bread be prepared? And why do people care after the first 2 episodes?
