For more than 8 seasons, Man V. Food has attempted to answer a simple question. In a battle of man and food who wins? Will the man finish the food? or will the food finish the man? A premium offering of the Travel Channel, the series documents the adventures of the host as they explore the “big food” offerings. The series takes viewers on a ride across different American cities, where the host faces off against a pre-existing eating challenge. Burdened with a timer, there are times when the food finishes the host. Previously presented by Adam Richman, the series is now hosted by Casey Webb.
Casey Webb was born in Red Bank, New Jersey, USA. A 70’s kid, Casey celebrates his birthday on the 27th of April. Casey grew up in Little Sliver alongside his older brother. During the early 80’s Casey tasted fame as husky child model specializing in Winter Fashion. Behind the starry glitter and fame, all along Casey was an avid food lover and invested in foods. Casey attended Red Bank Regional high school during which he was invested in football and wrestling sports. He graduated there in 1994.
While still pursuing academics, at the age of 15 Casey started working on bars. And since has worked in kitchens, tended bar, and managed restaurants on the Jersey Shore.
Life as an actor:
Even though the kitchen had always been a bright light in Casey’s life, he did venture out of it. Over the years, Casey worked as an actor and also did his fair share of voiceover work. After graduating high school, Casey moved to New York in search of better opportunities. Acting struck a chord with Casey, and he also started doing voiceovers on the side. Over the years, Casey has worked in several national commercials and series including “Boardwalk Empire” and “Inside Amy Schumer.” Casey is also a member of The Collective and The Actors Theater of New York.
His grandest adventure:
Even though every day is an adventure for Casey Webb, Man V. Food is his greatest adventure to date. When the series went into a five-year-long hiatus, fans were left wondering if the series would ever make a comeback. A bit of shakeup and Man V. Food was back, but this time with a new host. Casey was appointed as the host in 2017 and has starred in four seasons. His introduction line in the new series read,
“For years, food’s army has grown unchecked…bigger, spicier, bolder. But a hero rises, ready to taste the nation’s most epic eats. I’m Casey Webb. Holding the banner of man and armed with years of experience in the restaurant industry, I go into battle. Food, your days are numbered. The mighty Casey is at the plate. This is Man v. Food.”
Even though fans were left wondering if Casey would be able to emulate the success Adam Richman had with the series, their doubts were put to rest in the very first episode. Humorous and witty, Casey was not afraid to take on the army of food. In his most recent season, Casey registered 19 wins for “Man” and 13 wins for “Food”.
Personal Life: Is Casey Webb married?
Casey Webb actively uses Instagram to regularly communicate with his fans. While he is currently single, Casey was involved with American DJ Elle Dee around 2012. The relationship lasted for a short period, neither of the two shared the reason for the breakup. But the man does like to troll his fans. In 2016, he posted a picture of himself and Graci Carli, with the hashtag husband-wife. While this was nothing more than a prank on Casey’s part, it left most of his fans confused. As of now, Casey Webb is single and is focused on his career.
