Listing Types : Eating Competitions
Location : Victoria
Prizes : First Prize: $500 for both Male and Female categories, and an Annual Pass to Luna Park!
Rules : Eaters will have 10 minutes to eat as many Luna Park Hot Dogs and Buns (HDB's) as possible. HDB's must be eaten whole to count, i.e. the same number of buns and hot dogs. Only after both the hot dog and bun have been consumed (including any dropped components on the plate) will the HDB be counted as eaten. Crushing of buns together is not permitted. Any buns that have been crushed beyond recognition will not be counted toward the total. The person who eats the most HDB's in that 10 minute period will be deemed the winner and will be awarded the major prize. Chimpmunking at the end of the competition is allowed. Dunking throughout the competition is allowed. Water will be provided. No other food or drink other than has been provided can be consumed during the competition. In the event of a tie, an "Eat Off" will occur, where the tied contestants (2 or more) will each be given a HDB to consume as fast as possible. After the conclusion of the competition, and the start of the "Eat Off", the contestants are not permitted to leave the competition area. This includes bathroom breaks. The person who consumes the HDB the fastest showing an open mouth (to confirm the HDB has been fully consumed) will be deemed the winner. Any contestant that vomits within the 10 minute competition period will be disqualified.

What an amazing spectacle last year. It went down to a tiebreaker in front of a huge crowd. Everyone was going nuts! You can’t get more exciting than that, and I expect the competition this year to be just a fierce! Can’t wait to be a part of this year’s competition as well!
