Its about to Start! I hope I win this time!

update: ABout the Ketchup, some of you noted that I got called out for bringing Ketchup as a dunking agent by comentator, CrazyLegs Conti. I think he said something like "I'd have to question the strategy of eating MORE food..."

Because I couldnt be completely sure how dry the potatoes would be, I figured I'd keep it in reserve next to my water cups. The water was good enough to get the wedges down, and with 2 minutes left in the contest I started to dip every fouth wedge to combat the 'flavor fatigue' that was setting in.

Great call by Crazylegs though, I cant believe he spotted it from the broadcast booth!

I watched it when I got home from the Rutgers/USF game last night.

I was impressed with how much fun it was to watch!

Good luck next time!

P.S. No Ketchup! (Crazy Legs said so...)

What a blast! We sat right on the floor in front of the TV, like excited little kids. You rock!

WOW,
It's so fun that all of you watched it! It really came off as a pollished production...SPIKE did a great job with this.

I understand that they will play more of my interview in show 2 or 3 which will be aired around Thanksgiving and then XMAS!

Yeah, I felt like a kid too!!!!

How can anyone eat wedges without ketchup? Geesh...

Man, that was fun to watch! I recorded it so I can see it again.

Dude, Florida was pulling hard for Steakbellie. Can't wait to see the rest of the shows. El Toro sucks. Brutal.

Dude, the ketchup was a smart strategy. Like you said, it helped with flavor fatigue (a factor that is overlooked in a lot of contests).

I brought chocolate syrup to a vanilla ice cream eating contest and everyone thought I was crazy (the judges confiscated it because we weren't allowed to use any liquids). I think it would have helped a lot in the latter minutes.

could I get a search of this "blogger" for the words "table ender" please.

J and I both thought the ketchup was a good idea. It's more of a liquid than a food, and potatoes can clog up your throat easy. Plus the whole flavor fatigue thing.

You were great on TV! Wished there were more interviews with eaters in general.
