Man vs. Food challenges in central Florida
I noticed that Kellers BBQ in Orlando offers a Man vs Food type challenge. $20.00 and you get 45 minutes to eat 2 pounds of bbq pork, 2 pounds of french fries, 2 pieces of garlic bread and a large drink. Eat it and you get the meal for free, a spot on their wall of fame and a coupon for a free lunch on your next visit.
Has anyone tried this or know of any other MVF places in central Florida?
Thanks in advance.
I don't get the phenomenon at all, I watched that show a few times and its interesting to see a lot of the places he goes before his "Challenge" but each time it got to the power eating challenge I had to shut it off. I can put down some food when I'm in the mood, much to the regret of my groaning waistline but I just don't see the allure of stuffing yourself with 5 or so pounds of food just for bragging rights.
Agree with willdupre. I can't watch the show...I find it revolting. I love eating more than most people...but with 75 percent of Americans projected to be overweight by 2020, I don't understand the glorification of being able to shovel down 5 lbs. of food in a short sitting. I'm don't normally go all "church-lady" about other people's eating and drinking habits (gawd knows, I have no right)...but I find this type of challenge to be counterproductive to both our collective health and image as a country.
I can eat a lot, but nothing in the ballpark of what's on this show every week....
I 'might' be able to manage 'the big steak', but not the mandatory 5 pounds of fries, the rolls, and the salad...
And I CERTAINLY wouldn't attempt it to get a tee shirt or my picture on a wall...
The few times I really over-did it in my life I was uncomfortable to the point of pain, and panic...
I've concluded it's downright dangerous...
