    It was a blast watching it at Black Market Pizza in Ankeny. The friend of mine who was with us got intereviewed by Adam and was wearing his I-State hat. Assuming his clip makes it, chalk one up for the Cyclones! Adam was a great guy and worked the room for the short time he was there.

    This is GREAT news for Black Market Pizza. Shows like Triple-D and this are windfall developments for these mom and pop operations. People nationwide will make a point to stop at these places now.

    For a group of guys who were unemployed a little over a year ago, this is a huge development. I am very happy for them.

    Now we need to get Guy to stop at some place in Iowa. That would be HUGE!

    I was wondering what was going on there. We went to lunch at El Azteca and there were a bunch of filming people outside of Black Market Pizza. Makes sense now haha

    I've never seen the show - what exactly is the premise? Does this guy just try to consume a ridiculously large meal at these places, or what?

    basically yes. he goes to different places in town and then goes to a place that has a food challenge and tries to beat it. ill just say he can eat alot of food.
