YMMV: Man v. Food

  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks: Most of the series is practically the same thing. Adam sees new food and just eats it. Winning the challenge excluded, not many of the episodes mix things up.
  • Squick: Watching Adam get the "meat sweats" from too much hamburger, or watching him suffer though one of the 'spicy challenges' has made some viewers avert their eyes from the screen
    • Watching competitive eater Joey Chestnut crush the 18-inch long, five-pound "Burritozilla" in just over three minutes in the San Jose episode counts as this or a Crowning Moment of Awesome depending on your tolerance for watching enormous amounts of food get mashed in extremely short periods of time.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: One recurring piece of background music sounds suspiciously like "Life in the Fast Lane" by The Eagles.
