Eating competitions - on TV
This just moved on the wire services. On TV this Saturday, May 11:
"World Hamburger Eating Championship" (8 p.m.) and "Hot Dog Eating Contest" (9 p.m.), ESPN2. Before you enjoy this too much, you might want to see the next paragraph.
"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," 9 p.m., CBS. These rerun centers on the death of an obese man. Detectives look into the nasty world of competitive eating.
Yuck! Not sure how competitive eaters do it (or WHY, for that matter).
The photo at right shows a watermelon eating contest that took place during a Kentucky Kid's day celebration at A.D. Owens in Newport a couple years ago. That just doesn't even LOOK good to me!
