PROVIDENCE – Man v. Food Nation came to Providence and will air its adventures at local eateries at 9 p.m. on Wednesday on the Travel Channel.

Host Adam Richman visited Bob & Timmy’s, the Haven Brothers, and Olneyville NY System to film an episode for the show's fourth season, which puts a twist on previous episodes by recruiting “local talent to take on their beloved hometown challenges.”

A behind-the-scenes photo gallery shows Richman discovering the Haven Brothers, the “oldest restaurant on wheels” for a Triple Murder burger and sharing a pizza with a customer at Bob & Timmy’s.

Richman then teams up with the Rhode Island Rebellion rugby team, coaching a player through the 15 fully-loaded (mustard, onions, and meat sauce) hot wieners in 45 minutes challenge at Olneyville NY System.

Viewing parties will be held at Olneyville NY System at its 20 Plainfield St. location, beginning at 8 p.m. with the city’s Mayor Angel Taveras as well as at Bob & Timmy’s at its 32 Spruce St. location and at its new location at 621 Pound Hill Road in North Smithfield.
