i was watching this show on tv earlier where people actually compete in eating contests, like who can eat the most hot dogs or chicken wings or fries or whatever. it seems kinda weird and disgusting, but interesting at the same time. what do you think? have you ever entered one? do you think you could win a contest eating something?

eating contest - eating contest is disgusting
Hello,pagli84,it is an interesiting topic,i had never entered raing contest like this and I am sure I am going to lose because I do not eat much and I eat slowly. I think it is realy disgusting as there will always be may food left over and wasted, even for those they had eaten,i will consider them as a waste because they are not having the food to fulfill their hunger but for the competition.They are full but they may still want to have more in order to win the competiton

I have entered minor ones on certain occasions like fraternity competitions and school battles, that kinda match. I've never won though, there always tends to be 1 or 2 guys which can just keep on going and going eating vast amounts. We never had one of those cool "I-can-eat-everything" Chinese guys though :P, they always win.

I almost entered one, but then bailed out. Ohh sure food is yummy and I'd find them interesting, but I often worry about feeling sick after. If I could I would enter maybe a burger eating contest or even a hot dog eating contest, but I may have to think about it.
