The Travel Channel announces that filming will start this week for a new series of Man v Food that will debut in August. Actor and restaurant business veteran Casey Webb will replace Adam Richman as the host. In 2011, John Lomascolo won the Man v Food Nation Casting Call contest that was to have awarded him with an appearance in an Albany area episode that was not recorded before the series was canceled. We will see if the resumed series fulfills that promise.

    So what kind of eating accomplishments does he have. Can he manage a 3,5,7 or 10 pound burger. He doesn’t strike me as somebody who could replace Adam unless he’s more spice oriented. Could be wrong but just curious.

    Adam was more of an entertainer than an eater. He couldn’t even finish a 7 pound burger. The Kookamonga got the best of him.

    Emma Dalton should host. She ate 14+ pounds of Thai food!

    well to be fair do you want an eater who can eat big portions creating more challenges around the country that are 10+ pound challenges or do you want a average eater who helps create more 5 pound challenges? Because if the show becomes popular again people will create challenges based around the host (eater) of the show.

    The only asset he had was a full head of hair . Aside from that i think he still lived with his mother he had no girlfriend and was probably gay . Not a bad eater though

    No, then all these restaurants would start making 10-15 lb. challenges, which most eaters, pro and amateur, could not even come close to doing.

    There needs to be defeats. Look at Randy Santel’s videos: the most exciting ones are when he loses a challenge. I think he has only lost 11 times in his career.
