Back in February, Adam Richman — the host of the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food who is known for taking on ridiculous food challenges — and his crew visited a few of our favorite eateries in Tampa Bay for the new, revamped season of his show, Man vs. Food Nation.

The episode will air tonight at 9 p.m. (EST) and feature Adam's foodie ventures to Aguila Sandwich Shop in West Tampa, where he scarfed down their 12-inch Cuban sandwich, Rapscallions in Land O' Lakes, where he took on the Davy Jones Hot Wing Challenge, and to Skipper's Smokehouse in North Tampa where Richman sampled the grouper reuben and gator ribs.
