i think guy's a douche, but i like DDD because it highlights all different types of cuisine and dishes across the country (including a place right around the corner from me where lolo and i go for breakfast on the weekends from time to time).
richman is way more tolerable than guy, but MvF only intrigues me when he's eating the regional stuff before he moves onto the challenge. i don't really care about how quickly someone can eat a 5 lb. burger. i just wanna see good food and get cool ideas for new dishes.
