The challenge? The Cheese Truck Challenge, is a 10 layer deep grilled cheese sandwich feast. The prize? Honor, and honor’s delicious reward, a sandwich bearing the King’s very own name.

Can You Smell What Tampa’s Cooking?
Episode 2 leaves the formalities of kings and monarchies behind, to get down and dirty with Tampa’s very own wrestling phenomenon Jerry ‘Nasty’ Sags.
The Davy Jones Locker challenge is a habanero monster, a sweaty picante 10-winged creature of myths and lore. Adam takes wrestler Sags to the home of this scalding challenge, Tampa’s Rapscallion restaurant. The blood of Davy Jones, pure capsaicin, an ingredient used in pepper spray, is lavishly poured across the wings. As the crowd gathers and Adam stands proudly by, Captain James Morgan, the head chef and owner, brings out the finger licking fire locker. The habanero hits the lips, the fists pound the table, and the ‘Nasty’ tag team howl screams into the Tampa night.
