“My job was auditioning, and that show — I didn’t know the name of that show until cut to me actually getting the job and signing the contract,” he said in an interview with Stars and Celebs. They kept it under wraps. It was under another name. Physically, I turned the page on the contract, and the second page said Man v. Food.”
“The first page, I believe it said ‘Big Eats.’ At that moment, that’s when I knew that this was the show,” he recalled. “Before that, I was like, ‘This seems a lot like Man v. Food.’ I didn’t even know Man Versus Food was off the air.”
Casey went on to say that it was really by chance that he got the job, and that it only happened because he had pitched such a similar concept to the agent before.
