8. Food Party (IFC)
Mix one part Rachael Ray’s boundless enthusiasm with two parts Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and that comes somewhere close to approximating the delicious weirdness of Food Party, masterminded and hosted by art student Thu Tran and friends. Most of their creations aren’t quite edible—kitten pie, anyone?—but it’ll feed your appetite for unbridled weirdness, that’s for certain.
7. Man v. Food (Travel Channel)
Host Adam Richman’s gastrointestinal track probably hates him, but we’re thrilled by his cross-country travels to gorge on the biggest, spiciest, greasiest, most ridiculous food in America. He’s hit up whole-hog barbecue in North Carolina and a burger stacked five patties high in Boston, but nothing quite compares to his tete-a-tete with the dish dubbed “suicide hot wings” in Brooklyn, which earned him the dubious honor of being one of the only dudes this decade to cry on national food TV due to something other than being screamed at by Gordon Ramsay.
