Eating contests and Eating challenges around Kona & Denver

Getting Ready

Above is a photo of the two large cheesesteaks from Taste of Philly that I ate in preparation for an eating challenge I'll be doing in Las Vegas next week.

The challenge in Vegas is at Johnny McGuire's Deli. I'll have 40 minutes to eat a 24-inch sub. I can choose the sub. If I do not finish, I pay TWICE the normal cost, so $50.

At Taste of Philly I ordered two large Hoagie Philly sandwiches. Each one is 12". And 2 X 12" equals 24". The sandwiches were packed with chopped steak, onions, lettuce, and tomato. Melted provlone cheese. And that awesome Amoroso bread.

I wasn't going all out, but at a good clip. The timer was 4:15 after the 1st one cleared, 9:45 after the 2nd sandwich, and 10:30 after I cleaned up the droppings on the plate. Not too shabby!

Wait...you have to pay penalty if you loose? I've never heard of a challenge with that. I've heard of them not reimbursing costs....but making you pay if you loose? That seems weird....what's to say someone wouldn't just leave afterward?

Yeah that was my first reaction too. But then I thought "this is Vegas". And it is unique.

That's some photo. You shouldn't have told us what those are on the scale. They kind of look obscene. Could have been a fun guessing game.
