Gather your apetite, put on a saddle, it’s going to be one delicious and bumpy ride.
NEW EPISODE, WEDNESDAY @ 9PM on Travel Channel!
Over the season we’ve observed quite a few contestant putting their lives on the line to defeat food. Today, in reverence to all their hard work, we compile a medical collection of the most painful moments in our MvFN CHALLENGES! Salute the food.
THE INVERTED ATOMIC BOMB: Induced from overexposure to the raw habanero spice, symptoms from this condition include a numbness of the teeth and the sensation of a heat stroke in the lips. Individuals have occasionally described lapsed loss of sight. All these symptoms can best be cured with a full body milk shower.
CHEESE CHINLOCK: A combination of classic throatbuster and old fashioned lockjaw, this grilled cheese induced phenomenon leaves its victim unable to chew, talk, or think properly.

What? It’s the summer and you’re NOT at the beach? Your toes aren’t tucked away into warm sand? Hard working people of America, take a break, grab a cold one and get mighty comfy.
Tomorrow’s episode brings the paradise of the Florida Keys to YOU! It’s going to be a culinary adventure with local fishing oddities (can I say “Hogfish”), key lime pie with Vanilla Ice (yes, the rapper), and a visit to the Conch Republic. You’re going to enjoy a feast in the sunniest corner of these United States. A post-July 4th food extravaganza!
Of course, I can’t forget to mention that tomorrow’s contender isn’t your average MvF Nation competitor. In fact, she’s a shy five feet tall. Don’t jump to any conclusions though, with Adam at her side, anything is possible.
Don’t forget to tune in, relax, and soak in the Florida rays.
Stay tasty Nation.
