He fell in love with it and can’t wait to have the opportunity to return to New Orleans and try more delicious food.

2. Travel and People Attracted Him to Man Vs. Food

Although Webb is passionate about food and is even a self-taught chef, it was not the prospect of the eating challenges that persuaded him to take on the role of host for Man vs. Food. What appealed to him much more was meeting new people from across the United States and having the chance to gain new experiences and see new places when he was traveling. After filming his first series, he maintains that these are the best aspects of his role as host on the show.

Although Webb is now an actor, art director and producer, he made his debut into the public eye as a child model.

Once his short career as a child model was over, it was many years before he took to the stage and began an acting career.

5. He Has Done Many Voice Overs for Commercials

Webb is best-known for his television roles. However, he has also done a lot of work on commercials. Much of this has involved him providing a voice over for a commercial.
