These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
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.
