“’Man v. Food’ is a true, pop culture phenomenon that has inspired more than 1,000 new restaurant eating challenges in the last several years,” said Courtney White, senior vice president, programming and development, Travel Channel. “Travel Channel couldn’t resist getting back on the road, visiting cities across the United States, where our ‘Man’ will take on new unbelievable foods and flavors.”
Since the age of 15, Webb has worked in kitchens, tended bar and has run restaurants on the Jersey Shore. Inspired by the original “Man v. Food” series, Webb and his friends seek out and enjoy taking on eating challenges just for fun. When he’s not working – he’s eating!
“I feel like my ‘best self’ in strange places,” said Webb. “Learning from, and connecting with strangers, who are as excited about food as I am, is a major part of why I love traveling. Win or lose, I’m ready to give it my all.”
