Two different hosts, two different trips to Maine over the course of almost two decades. That sums up Maine's history with the popular Cooking Channel show known as "Man v. Food". The original host of the show was Adam Richman, who traveled from coast to coast for many years taking on the most ridiculous and monstrous eating challenges that were placed in front of him. 'Man v. Food' brought Richman to Portland in 2010 to take on some massive plates of food and to learn how to properly cook a lobster. The original run of the show last for four seasons before Richman called it quits in 2012. But 'Man v. Food' wasn't done yet.

The show's second host, Casey Webb, is just as ambitious as Richman when it comes to food and food challenges, and brings a very different personality to the forefront. When the show was revived in 2017, Webb traversed the country to find a whole slew of new eating challenges in cities Richman hadn't visited. Later seasons brought Webb back to some of the most popular places the previous show had visited, including Portland, Maine. Webb's visit to Portland was different than Richman's. Webb visited a pair of the trendiest hotspots in the city, and wrapped up his visit with a trip to a chain restaurant.
