NEW YORK (November 1, 2017) – Armed with an appetite for victory and thirst for glory, Casey Webb returns for the second season of “Man v. Food,” with back-to-back episodes on Monday, December 4 at 9 P.M. ET/PT. The fearless competitor continues the battle to win extraordinary food challenges across the country. This season, Webb will attempt 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.
“Get ready, America – I’m coming to town to wreak havoc on your biggest challenges,” said Webb. “Give me spicy hot, cold, gigantic or bold -- I can handle it. Or, maybe I can’t. Either way, I’m gonna have a good ol’ time trying, all while soaking up every bit of every city, from the people to the restaurants and lore, I'm ready for more."
In the debut episode, 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, 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.
