Travel Channel and Gaiam Release "Man V Food Nation" on DVD

NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaiam, Inc., a leading producer of lifestyle media, announced today the DVD release of Travel Channel's Man V Food Nation under its exclusive home video license agreement with Travel Channel. 

A new name for the same game, Adam Richman, actor, chef and food enthusiast is back -- but this time he is recruiting local talent to take on their own beloved hometown challenges.  After three years of eating his way across America, Adam recruits local talent from the cities he visits to partake in the challenges themselves. Using his extensive competitive eating experience, Adam coaches these hungry competitors as they work together to defeat culinary feasts and celebrate the community that created them.

Cheer on Adam and the locals as they chow down on everything from hot-fried chicken in Nashville to Hawaiian-style hot dogs in Oahu. Other highlights include the intriguing Voodoo Juice Challenge in Savannah, the mouth-watering Caseus Cheese Truck Challenge in New Haven, and the classic Reuben Challenge in Cincinnati. Adam even coaches a group of Packers fans through the Gravedigger Challenge, which entails devouring a 93-ounce burger in just 60 minutes!  Surely, all 25 episodes of this stomach-filling, suspense driven show will prove to be quite the treat.

This three-disc set has a run time of 602 minutes and an SRP of $13.75.  Street date: April 17, 2012.

Man V Food Nation will be available in stores and online wherever DVDs are sold.
