Man vs. Washington?

In the epic battle of man versus food, it looks like food has won. Adam Richman, of The Travel Channel’s Man v. Food,is changing up the format of his show to move away from overeating and near-heart attacks to something a little more dignified. Though the description is still vague (leading this girl to believe even the Travel Channel isn’t sure of the format yet), it looks like Richman will be touring cities and sampling their food culture under the new show moniker Man v. Food Nation.

That is where you come in. The Travel Channel is holding an open online audition process for the eaters of the United States that “love where they live, the food, and its culture and are excited to experience a Man v. Food challenge.” Again, no further explanation of what that challenge would be, but if you love your city and its food, all you need to do is upload a video on YouTube explaining why, and you may just get your smiling face on a nice low-numbered cable channel.

So what would put D.C. over the top? Speed hard shell crab eating? A Five Guys hamburger as tall as the Washington Monument? TWO brick sandwiches from Eastern Market?
