Adam Richman talks 'Food Fighters': 'It's a culinary Mortal Kombat'

Ever wondered how well your favorite home cook would stack up against a Food Network star? That’s the question at the center of NBC’s new series Food Fighters.

Hosted by Man v. Food‘s Adam Richman (who recently made news when he went on an anger-fueled Instagram rant)Food Fighters pits home cooks against professional chefs in a battle to win over a dinner party full of taste testers—think Throwdown with Bobby Flaybut with bigger prizes than just being able to say, “My dish was more popular than Bobby Flay’s!” The winning home cooks do get bragging rights, but they also win cash prizes that increase as the competition goes on.

'Man v. Food' host Adam Richman rants on Instagram, new show delayed

Adam Richman–the formerly fluffy host of Man v. Food who irked online folks by using the word “thinspiration” to describe his recent weight loss–may be on the cusp of losing his new show too.

The Travel Channel recently announced that it was postponing the July 2 debut of Man Finds Food, a new show that would have sent Richman on the hunt for off-the-beaten-path restaurants and menu items. A spokesman for the cable network wouldn’t provide a reason for the decision, though the timing is suspect given Richman’s recent online tirade. After he posted a photo on his Instagram account that showed his weight loss, he included the hashtag #thinspiration. He quickly learned via his followers that the term “is very popular in pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia circles,” according to blogger Amber Sarah. The online fight escalated, with Richman hurling expletive-fueled digs–some of which he took down.

Richman has become a big personality for The Travel Channel, even though he hasn’t produced fresh episodes of Man v. Food–a show that featured him eating massive quantities of food–for years.
