Tonight on Man vs. Food Nation: Conch and Vanilla Ice in Key West (Video)
We wish we had Adam Richman's job. This former soap actor and graduate of the Yale School of Drama has made his mark on the world not by reciting Shakespeare - but by eating massive amounts of food on Travel Channel's Man vs. Food and the new Man vs. Food Nation (which is basically the same show but with real people as recruits).
On tonight's episode of Man vs. Food Nation, Adam heads down to our favorite place on earth, The Florida Keys, where he takes his talents to the Hogfish Bar & Grille to eat "The Killer Hogfish" sandwich. Dessert comes next with some key lime pie from Blue Heaven and a "surprise" visit from
washed up rapper reality star Vanilla Ice (does this technically make the pie ala mode?).
As with all Man vs. Food episodes, it's challenge time. The Key Largo Conch House hosts the Conch Republic fritter eating contest, where Adam recruits a five-foot tall UM co-ed to scarf down about a million fried lumps of mollusk.
Who wins? Find out tonight at 9:00 p.m. and watch two exclusive previews here:
