You probably heard about Travel Channel foodie Adam Richman’s recent social media meltdown, in which the newly slimmed down Man v. Food host (ignorantly) used the controversial term “thinspiration” on Twitter, got called out for it and responded with unbelievable venom.

Here’s what you might not know: The third episode of Richman’s now indefinitely postponed new Travel Channel Show, Man Finds Food, originally set to air July 9, would have focused on four Las Vegas restaurants.

The premise of the new show was discovering delicious hidden food treasures and off-menu items at eateries across the country. Man Finds Food filmed at Capo’s Italian Steakhouse on West Sahara Avenue, an old-school, mob-themed joint, as well as Downtown’s Park on Fremont and Cosmopolitan’s “secret” pizzeria—which, at this point, is only a secret to the true Vegas novice. The local episode also featured westside breakfast stalwart Jamms Restaurant, and its secret sandwich creation the Jamminator, a Reuben omelet on French toast. So, we can’t watch the show, but we can all eat the Jamminator.
