Round 3 was another fiercely fought round of the Wing Challenge, with 6 competitors fighting it out for a place in the Grand Final. With Nate Dizzle, Grant “Lord of the Wings” Daniel, and Colin “The Conqueror” MacLaurin back again to try for a place in the final, would they be able to beat the other 3 contestants and make it through?
The contestants were introduced, they were seated. Little did the know the pain that was about to ensue. With only seconds remaining before the competition start time, Cameron Jukes arrives!
The start was even, with Nate Dizzle seeming to struggle with the first few wings. He wasn’t prepared for the pain that was round 3, as these wings were seriously hot.
Colin “The Conqueror” seemed to pull away to an early lead, with the rest of the field close behind. It was difficult to figure out who was leading, each of the eaters seemingly destroying wings at an equal pace.
As time progressed, Nate Dizzle began to heave violently. Supported passionately by a blonde member of the crowd, he was still unfortunately unable to cope with the heat and volume of the wings, and soon retired to the garden to help ease the pain. He was disqualified for a second time this year for reversing.
After 12 minutes of a closely fought battle, the results were tallied and the winners decided
First Place: Colin “The Conqueror” MacLaurin – 29 wings, winning $100 bar tab and a bottle of Single Barrel Jack Daniel’s Whiskey
Second Place: Cameron “latearama” Jukes – 26 wings, winning a $50 bar tab
Third Place: A tie, with Anthony “Hot Sizzle” Suchich and “Slammin'” Sam Morrison, 25 wings, each winning a $25 bar tab.
