Adam Richman loses the Wing King Challenge at the West End Tavern

The new season of Man V. Foodstarted last night, and featured Adam Richman attempted to become a Wing King at the West End Tavern, a challenge that involves eating fifty wings in half-an-hour.

Since the challenge was introduced almost a year ago, fifteen eaters have been crowned Wing King. Richman is not among them: His March 25 attempt was a miserable failure, as last night's episode revealed.
