Navy Officer Becomes Puffy Taco Master on 'Man v. Food Nation' (VIDEO)

As with many of the challenges on 'Man v. Food Nation' (Wednesdays, 9PM on Travel), the Elote Café & Catering Puffy Taco Challenge doesn't sound too crazy on paper. All you have to do is eat 23 puffy tacos in 90 minutes. That's a lot of time, you'd think, except the previous record was 22 tacos. And then host Adam Richman shows the puffy tacos being made, topped with free-range chicken breast, caramelized onions, romaine lettuce, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, and crema fresca.
Then it starts to look pretty tough, maybe even for US Navy Second Class officer Manny Groll, who took the challenge. "You have 90 minutes to take down 23 puffy tacos in order to be crowned the new Puffy Taco Master," said Richman. Groll had a fighting spirit. "I wanna be on that wall as number one," he said.
