Many have pinned the show's success on its host, Adam Richman. The Yale trained actor had an easy charm about him, always bringing the best out of small business owners who really had no right to be on television. I forget what the personality trait is called, but it's been attributed to people like George Clooney and Barack Obama. Adam may have been a pudgy ball of enthusiasm from Brooklyn, but he had it too.
Essentially, I think it's the ability to make the person you're talking to feel like the most important person in the room.
Now Adam has come out as vegan. This was probably a wise move, especially if he didn't want his arteries to resemble italian sausage.
A vegan Adam Richman.
Even so, it feels a bit sad. Here's a man who's biting the hand that fed him by keeping his mouth firmly closed. I've no idea what Richman does these days, but from a quick glance at his Twitter he supports Tottenham and shows up to events where he's introduced as "the host of Man V Food".
