Actor and restaurant business veteran Casey Webb will replace Adam Richman as the host.

Observer.com interviews Adam Richman

Observer.com has an interview with Adam Richman, who addresses Anthony Bourdain’s claim that Man vs. Food is responsible for Islamic terrorism:

Last question. I heard that Anthony Bourdain blamed you for the creation of ISIS, arguing that…Someone watches my show, and they supposedly say, “America’s a very bad place. Tomorrow I bomb it.” Tony is actually a friend of mine and I talked to him about it. I was like ‘You threw me under the bus.’ I understand the need for a good line but I hope that his want of a good friend is greater than that, and he made it clear that it was.
