BEDA Day 5 - Man v Food, San Antonio

Today on the new episode of Man v Food on the Travel Channel, Adam travels to San Antonio and visits Lulu’s Bakery and Café for their 3 1/2-lb. cinnamon roll. Then he goes to Big Lou’s Pizza and Chunky’s Burgers for the Four Horsemen Challenge. The episode will air tonight at 10 E/P.

I have watched this show many times and always wonder to myself if I could ever complete the challenges that Adam does. I have never done any type of food eating challenge, but I have thought about it. I am a big guy and can put down some food when I want to. Whenever I see food eating challenges on tv, I always think to my self, "that looks easy" or " I could do that". Until I actually do a challenge, I just keep my mouth shut.

The challenges that I know I can not do are the ones that have to deal with chilies and heat. I eat spicy food, but not too often. And just a bit of peppers will set my mouth on fire. I do admit that I am a light weight when it comes to eating anything spicy. Most of my family can eat jalapenos whole and love the spiciest salsa with almost every meal. When I visit my mom, she makes sure to keep the jalapeno seeds in with the salsa or pico de gallo, just to keep me away from it. It's ok though, I always make sure to have the mildest salsa in stock. I have been "practicing" and getting used to some salsas that I would not have dared touch before. It's a work in progress.
