I have. Of course, I was on one of the episodes briefly when they visited Phat Matt's BBQ in Oakland.

That's great! I just caught about half an episode tonight while channel surfing, never seen it before.

They do a lot of stuff about bacon. It was interesting to see how it was shot, far more broken up and contrived than I would have expected. I have to say, the episode at Matt's, they focused on the right dish and it was as good as he made it out to be.

I watch it when i can't find anything else to watch. The host is just a slight bit disturbing to me. I find it particularly odd when a morbidly obese man of practically c*mming in his pants over food, especially very unhealthy foods.

Flame on... :mad2:

Yes, I watch it but the host gets on my nerves.

I expect the season to end with him gripping his heart and falling onto a very large flat top.

They also had "United Steats of Steak" on last night. These shows are interesting but you do expect the host to have a heart attack at any time. Like Man V Food. Did anyone notice how much weight Adam gained from Episode 1 to the end of season 3? And accoridng to a story about the show, he worked out hard every morning and had a trainer who travelled with him. I have seen Adam on TV since the show ended and he has lost some weight and looks much better.

I expect that is why Adam stopped doing the challanges and now goes around and has other people doing them. He has lost a ton of weight since he stopped. He must have gained 50+ lbs during those 3 seasons.

I agree, watching the show with this guy hosting, once was enough for me.

Yea the guy just ruins it for me. It takes away from the epicness of some of the stuff he is eating, cause some of it is crazy!!

Actually, that was the last season. There is no more MvF. What you see now are all reruns. Adam does have a new show though.

On one of the episodes their was a so called "millionaires bacon" The owner of the restaurant claimed it took him months of trial and error to invent it. Turned out to be pig candy. :roll:
