"Man v. Food" kicks off new season tonight with three Brew City restaurants

The popular Travel Channel food series, "Man v. Food," will make its comeback tonight after a five-year hiatus. And the show will kick off its new season in Milwaukee.

The series, which aired for four seasons, the last in 2012, featured host Adam Richman eating his way across America, taking on extreme eating challenges, from blazingly spicy foods to larger than life sandwiches.

The new season will kick off with a brand new host. Food lover, actor and restaurant business veteran Casey Webb will continue Richman's quest to find America's most delicious, unique eats, as well as taking on larger-than-life eating challenges.

On Webb's debut, which will air tonight at 8 p.m., he'll tackle food and beverages from three Milwaukee restaurants, including Sobelman's Pub & Grill, Mader's and Jake's Deli.

At Sobelman's, he'll tackle the pitcher-sized Bloody Mary, garnished with a whole fried chicken.

At Mader's, he'll indulge in the classic Mader's pork shank, glazed with apple demi and served with red potatoes and either red cabbage or sauerkraut. And it's rumored that he'll wash that down with beer served up in the traditional bierstiefel (das boot!).

Meanwhile, at Jake's Deli, we expect him to tackle a four-plus pound corned beef and pastrami sandwich called "The Commish." The sandwich is named for after former Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, who will also make an appearance in the episode along with Milwaukee Brewers Eric Thames, Keon Broxton and Corey Knebel, as well as Brewers Manager Craig Counsell.
