The Travel Channel’s Man v. Food — part travelogue, part eating competition — might be coming to Kansas City in May. On the show, host Adam Richman walks viewers through a city’s best-known restaurants before ultimately attempting the city’s most serious food eating challenge, such as 180 oysters in New Orleans or the hottest curry in New York City. 

On March 31, the Holyfield Winery Tweeted:

Papa Bob’s BBQ in Bonner Springs, KS is expecting a visit from Man vs. Food! Papa has the “ultimate destroyer” sandwich!

The Travel Channel is currently showing repeats of the first and second season; the third season is scheduled to begin airing in June. Richman has visited St. Louis (that episode will rerun Wednesday, April 14) to tackle a milkshake challenge. But there is nothing on the show’s Web site about what cities are on the itinerary for the third season.

Fat City has a call in to the Travel Channel and Papa Bob’s BBQ. I’ll update this post accordingly.
