“We’ve all wondered if, given the chance, could we eat a 10 pound Reuben in Milwaukee?” said Courtney White, senior vice president, programming, Food Network and Travel Channel. “Casey’s fun, magnetic personality, along with his natural wit and relatability, are a good fit for this type of content. His passion for travel, people and food appeals to everyone in the household and is the secret sauce for the early success of ‘Man v. Food.’”
“Being the new ‘Man’ has been an absolute dream,” said Webb. “I can’t wait to get back out on the road to meet more extraordinary people and to keep waging war on food challenges in all-new cities across the country.”
