The Challenge

We had a challenger last night…

He was determined to consume an entire 2-foot pizza in a half an hour. He was tall and slightly skinny, the type of guy that can pull off massive quantities of eating at one time.

Here’s a photo of the dude with his 24″ pizza:

Good luck, skinny dude!

Good luck, skinny dude!

He chose Pepperoni and corn (I know… corn?!?) as his two toppings, and we went light on the toppings and the cheese. We even used our small pepperonis instead of the huge ones we normally use on the Giant pies. Whitey really, really wants a winner so that we can use the challenger in our advertising.

“If this skinny dude can do it, so can you” kind of stuff. 🙂

Well, skinny dude got down four slices before calling it quits, and only 15 minutes into it. He agreed that it was a lot more food than he had orginally thought.

I was relieved that he gave up. The last guy that attempted The Challenge ended up getting sick, and well, that doesn’t bode well when you have a full dining room. Everyone gave skinny dude props when he left, and he did ask to wrap up the remaining slices.

Even though he was sick of pizza at that point, he said that it tasted really good and that it would be great for breakfast.

    30 minutes! You are making this WAY too hard. Give ’em an hour, because I think you have at least 25 minutes of chewing on that huge pizza.

    I’ll be amazed if anyone ever beats the challenge!

    And corn on pizza? That’s almost as weird as peanuts. 🙂

    I agree with Monkey…
    30 mins is prolly too short of a time for a hot pizza to be eaten… maybe 45 mins with a cold pizza that big, would be easier.

    You know, the best way to beat this challenge is to expand the stomach before you get there. Most people think they just need to be hungry to eat that much. Not true really.. as it takes time for the contents of the stomach to reach the brain sensors before it triggers that full feeling.
    Eat fast, drink some and clear the plate 😉

    Can you freeze and send me one to practice with?

    You need to get some of the Central Oregon triathletes that compete in the Pilot Butte Duathlon (eat an 18oz burger and milkshake followed by a sprint to the top of Pilot Butte) to take a whack at it. I’m sure if anybody could do it, they would.
