I love watching this show but I don't know how that dude is still alive...Some of the things he eats are just ridiculous.  10-15,000 calories in one sitting?

He's about to take on a 6 pound burrito.

I hate to say it, but I think he just goes and pukes afterward and it is not shown on camera...

The guy could be a professional bulimic...

I was thinking the same thing....He has put on a lot of weight since the show started but if he didn't throw a lot of it up he would weigh 400 lbs.

If you are ever in Baltimore Don't go to Chaps for pit beef, A million percent overrated.  In My Opinion Fast Eddies Pit Beef is better.  I live about 3 miles from the Steak&Main restaurant that he did the final challenge at. Never been there but the place is pricey from what i've heard

Lol you guys really think that he just goes and vomits right afterward? Ive never actually thought about that but now that I think about it it makes sense...I cant picture any normal man being able to hold down that much food. I know pro eaters do it but those guys train for that kind of garbage...

I recently went and tried out the places he went to in arizona. The jewish sliders from chompies were one of the best things I've ever tasted.

went to the sandwich place in chicago he ate at and that was pretty damn good in wrigleyville, though far from the best sandwich.  

he's got a $43 menu item at pappys in st louis where i just was at.  its insane, full slab of ribs, chicken, 4 sides, pie, and a bunch of other garbage.  ribs were pretty good there, not as good as jacks in nashville

if you come to detroit and get the coneys he features on one show which are right next to each other, dont waste your time and please go to lafayette, not american.  he doesnt say a winner, but cmon man.

he has gained 150 lbs easy since he started the show.  i know when he originally started he said he would work out a lot during the off season for him.  looks like he stopped.  eating like that occassionally which he does wont get him fat, its eating like that a lot which he must and not working out is gonna kill him.  oh well, his problem.

I watch this show 3-4 times a week.  All I want is an egg on my next burger. Every time he has a burger he gets an egg on it. It looks so good.....

The stupid chicken wings in Pittsburgh is something I would like to try one day.

Best hangover cure of all time. A burger with bacon, EGG and cheese.

P.S Man v Food is a great show. As well as being a fat darn he's a funny darn.

That guy is my hero. Just a regular guy having some laughs and eating massive portions.
