      I find the whole thing pretty nauseating. My wife comes from a family of gluttons, and she has repeatedly been embarrassed by how they gorge in public.

    2. i think the photos at #11 are quite funny -- the intent cook, and the perky waitress! LOL!

      #17 is pretty funny, too. it's like they're in school!

      1. Curious that 4 of the 42 are in Colorado -the leanest state - and only 2 are in the 5 most obese states. Maybe the obese are too good at this sort of thing...

          1. Wow. I wonder how much restaurants make from these challenges. I'll bet a lot of people fork over a lot of money to try but fail.

              exactly what i was thinking -- those are hefty *entry fees* (so to speak) and the restos get lots of free publicity.

                I should set up my own business--for $100 you can bang your head on the wall for an hour as hard as you can. If you do it, I'll refund your money.
