    I love this show, it's on the travel channel. I'm also honored that they just did a San Diego episode (my home town).

    Who else loves this show?

    To sum up the show, the host of the show (Adam) visits cities all around the USA in search of restaurants that serve abnormally large portions. His goal is to find the large dish and to try to finish it (normally within a time limit). In the San Diego edition for example he visited "The Broken Yolk" which is a local chain where his challenge was to eat a 12 egg omelet composing of a pound of cheese, mushrooms, and topped with chili and more cheese...also served with 2 pounds of hash browns and 2 biscuits...all within an hour.

    What do you like about the show? I find it nauseating, myself.

    It gives me ideas on what I can cook at home...plus I love seeing if he can eat whats put in front of him. The one I like the most  was when he was in the bay area and he ate "the kitchen sink"

    Watched it from the beginning.

    Adam gained a lot of weight (of course) and the travel channel executives got a lot of flack from viewers about his appearance.

    He lost a huge amount of weight now and the show has evolved into something else.

    He did a number of hot food challenges too. It was mildly interersting, but I'm surprised it hung on like it did.

    Slim Adam is a lot less interesting that was chubby Adam.
