Eating contests

So I found the show Man Vs Food on the Travel Channel where every week he goes to a different city and attempts some kind of food challenge like eating some really spicy food or just mass quantities in an effort to win a t-shirt or something like that.
My question is this: Does anyone know of a place in the DC area that has a challenge like this? I'd prefer something in the Bowie/Annapolis area but am willing to travel.

  1. In Annapolis, Cluck-U-Chicken off Forrest Drive has a extremely hot chicken wing challenge.

    1. In Baltimore (Federal Hill), Magerks has a Cheesesteak Challenge. I forget what exactly you win, or what the count is up to, but there is a plaque at the bar with the latest winner's name on it.
