Welcome to First We Feast's brand-new program, The Burger Show. In the series premiere, host Alvin Cailan teams up with food-TV legend Adam Richman (Man v. Food, Secret Eats) to discuss a hot-button issue in the burger world: the rise of gourmet, expensive burgers.

With bespoke beef blends and luxury toppings like truffles and foie gras driving prices through the roof, are the upgrades really worth it? Find out as the duo tries premium patties ranging from $23 to $295.
