Piefection Chilli Pie Eating Contest, Mt Gravatt – 2pm Saturday 24 November 2012 Results

Close up!Results:

The inaugural Piefection Chilli Pie Eating Contest saw 12 contestants battle it out, eating 10 of their scorching chilli pies as fast as possible. The rules were simple. No drinks, eat 10 pies as fast as you can, winner gets the glory!

These pies were certainly spicy! Laced with birds eye chillies, the heat started slow but crept up on you. For a normal eater, you’d get about half way through these mini hot pies, and your eyes would start to water severely!

While they may have been small, the heat certainly made up for the lack of volume!

Starting strong, Daniel Mercer dashed ahead of the field, while other eaters seemed shocked at the rate the pies on his plate were disappearing. 2 pies in, certain in their defeat, Cam and Alex reach for their glasses of milk, a sign of surrender and instant disqualification.

Dillon put up a brave fight, eating a considerable number in the short time, but in 3:22, Daniel had already taken first place, and the others put down their spicy little pies, almost all reaching soon after for creamy relief.
