Hot Dog Eating Contest

Not sure which section this belongs in, admins feel free to move it.

I'm going to be in a hot dog eating contest in about an hour. Any suggestions? Anyone have any experience? Tips?

I want to win. I can eat incredibly fast without thinking about it, but I'm not sure how much I can hold. All my friends are amazed and astounded at just how fast I eat, without them noticing me actually eating fast. So I know I can scarf 'em. But holding them is another thing

some people eat the hotdog, then the bun.
also some soak the bun in water/drink then eat.

my tip is just make sure you don't have too much in your mouth at once, chewing takes time, and you can chew more efficiently with less in your mouth.

The Japanese hot dog eating champion uses the "Solomon Method." He breaks the hot dogs in half and then sticks both halves in his mouth at the same time.

He eats 50-something in 12 minutes. Your mileage may vary.

I dress up in business attire, full with tie and belt and dress shoes. I'm there for business. I'm there to win.

We had a meeting before the contest started, that started to unsettle me. I was getting nervous.

After 30 minutes, the contest starts. 15 guys around a ping pong table. Six hotdogs per plate. I start shoveling. Blitzkrieg is near.

I finish my first plate of six hotdogs second or third behind the then-leader. After a couple more minutes (out of the 20 minute time limit), the leader stops. I keep going (barely). One guy across the table is one hotdog behind me. I STRAIN to keep going. I have to win.

After the third hotdog I was full. I had the gag reflex already. Things didn't look good. But I kept going.

At the 9th hotdog, I had to cup my hand over my mouth to keep from puking. I am one hotdog and a half ahead of the leader.

30 seconds left. I put down my hotdog. I knew I had one.

Competition over, I look to my left. The guy beside me, who I hadn't been looking at, has eaten one-half of a hotdog more than me. He wins. He eats 11, I ate 10 1/2. If only I knew he was ahead....

...I would have won.

Ah well you win some you lose some

Did you throw up after? I can't imagine digesting all of those hotdogs.

Congrats, though, on coming so close.

In the future, you need to eat A LOT for the previous several days. This will thus stretch out your stomach.

Personally, I've never been a fan of the water-and-food method. I can't stand soggy eatables. Remember, it's mostly about being able to conquer your gag reflex.

I think there may be a pizza contest coming up in the semester. I have vowed to win this one, if it happens. I think this time I will eat a little bit for supper before the competition, to get my appetite going. I fasted for 8 hours for this one, so I was already nauseated because of the lack of food (before the competition even began).

I recently learned that the guy that won puked all night long last night, didn't get any sleep. I still haven't puked...hell, an hour after the competition I felt fine again. Untapped resource....I need to conquer my gag reflex, as TM875 mentioned. My stomach has felt weird all day, but I feel perfectly fine other than that. I was made fun of in Health and Fitness class today though The professor said "Hopefully none of you go to Burger King, Golden Coral, or eat a dozen hotdogs. But I don't think anyone in here would do that. Would they?" *stares straight at me*

I don't like 'em either. That contributed to my performance, or lack thereof. Pizza on the other hand I love. I am lactose intolerant, so I will have the nitro-shits, but I can shovel that shit like it's yesterday's news.

Sonya Thomas, of Alexandria, Virginia, wins lobster-eating contest

By SARA LEITCH

Sonya Thomas eats lobster on her way to winning the World Lobster Eating Championship,. (AP /Robert F. Bukaty)

KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) - America's top speed-eater wolfed down 38 lobsters in 12 minutes to win the World Lobster Eating Contest.

Sonya Thomas, of Alexandria, Virginia, won $500 and a trophy belt for her efforts Saturday, consuming 4.39 kilograms of lobster meat. Each contestant had a partner cracking the shells and pulling out the meat. Eleven competitors ate as many lobsters as they could in a 12-minute period, devouring a total of 35 kilograms.

"I have a natural ability because of my stomach capacity," said Thomas, who weighs a mere 47.25 kilograms. "I could eat more, but something else - not a lobster."

The competition, only in its second year, sought to elevate Maine into the big leagues of competitive eating, alongside New York's Coney Island with its Nathan's Famous hot dogs and New Orleans with its oysters.

This year's competition at the Pilot House Grill & Boatyard was sanctioned by the International Federation of Competitive Eating, which ranked Thomas the country's top speed-eater.

Thomas was coming off a baked bean victory days before in Indiana, where she consumed 8.4 pounds of beans with pork in 2 minutes and 47 seconds. She also holds records for hard-boiled eggs.

I would not want to be around this woman after both of these activities..

The lobster, now that'd be mighty tasty... but it should be savored -- not wolfed down - that's just a waste of good lobster.

I came in second in a pizza-eating contest. There were about 15 guys, and we each had to be the first to finish a large cheese pizza.

I'm a big guy, can be a big eater, and naturally eat fast. I was neck-and-neck with one other guy.

He had a strategy: he ate all the topping first, slurped it down, then went back for the crust. Must have worked for him because he was a much smaller guy and he kept ahead of me most of the way. I caught up for a little bit (I learned later), but he pulled ahead and was the first to put the last bit of pizza in his mouth. _But he couldn't swallow it. He was topped out._ I'd swallowed mine already, and he was still sitting there with sweat on his face and the judge standing over him telling him that he had to swallow to win. He finally got it down, kept it down for 30 seconds, and then threw it up. They let him win. By rights, I was the first to actually "consume" the pizza, but he played the rules smart and won the prize. In a down-and-dirty eat 'till you puke contest, of course, I would have won. He'd taken a dose of something to help him throw it all up afterwards, too, and keep his girlish figure -- whimp. No respect for the food.

If I had to do it all over again, what I'd do is take every spare second I could, while I'm chewing, to tear each piece of pizza into pieces with my hands. For me, my jaws started to go before my stomach did -- all that chewing and ripping really fatigued the jaw muscles. So if you can reduce the amount of chewing you have to do by ripping up the pieces a little in advance, do so. I guess this is strategy is somewhat similar to that of the Japanese hotdog champ: by breaking up the dogs in advance, he saves chewing time and energy.

I saw a hot dog competition on tv, it was the most discusting thing I have ever seen. This Japanese guy was chowing them down, I couldn't believe it. From what I saw this guy doing, pace yourself, eat the bread and the hot dog seperately, and wet down the bread.
