How Many Weiners Can You Cram In Your Face In Just 5 Minutes?

hotdog

Scout is proud to present the 1st annual Guggenheimer Dog Gobble, a hot dog eating competition held at Pourhouse for the Vancouver restaurant community on the afternoon of November 2nd (beginning at 3pm). Organised by Lumiere and DB Bistro sous chef Nathan Guggenheimer and Pourhouse co-owner Jay Jones, the friendly scarfdown is being held with generous sponsorship from Okanagan Spring (beer) and Windsor Meats (hot dogs). Anyone currently employed in the local food and beverage trade is welcome to register by adding their name in the comments below (please also email your contact and t-shirt size info to Nathan at natointhesquare@hotmail.com).

As the event draws nearer we will be posting more details, but in the meantime, take a look at the rules…

The Rules

All Hotdogs must be consumed orally. Sorry, no exceptions.

No hot dog dunks in any beverage.

There are 3 condiments allowed: mustard, mayo, and ketchup. You may choose any combination of the three in advance. They will be waiting for you.

There is a time limit of 5 minutes per contestant.

Each hotdog fully consumed is worth 5 points. If you eat half your hotdog, you get 2.5 points.

Each contestant will start with 15 hotdogs in front of them. Once the first 15 are finished, your plate will be topped up with more dogs until you can not eat anymore or the time is up.

Contestants will also be judged on the fashion in which they gobble their dogs, their clothing choices, and how they handle themselves throughout the competition.

If the time is up and you have a hotdog in your mouth it must be swallowed for it to count as an eaten hotdog.

There will be points deducted if too much bun is left on the contestants’ plate.

This is a shirts and pants optional competition. You may lose or gain points based on the judges reaction to the wisdom of your personal choices.

You are encouraged to use 2 hands. It is a gobble, after all.

There is no vomiting during the competition.  If you vomit you are immiediately disqualified and put on bucket duty (also, people will laugh and point at you).

Any gestures, rude or witty, with hotdog weiners will either result in deduction or addition of points to the contestant, depending on the judges’ individual senses of humor.

There is no help from anyone in the audience. Spectators are not to be trusted (but are most welcome).

You must be an employee of either a restaurant or hospitality group in Vancouver to enter this competition.

There are no animals allowed! If you are an animal you will not be allowed to participate. That means no birds, cats, badgers, et cetera.

No drug enhancements of any sort within 3 hours of the competition. We will check your eyes, and if you are deemed to be sufficiently baked, you are considered a bucket volunteer.

For every 5 hotdogs you eat you will be offered a beer worth 10 points. The pint must be finished to retain full points.

There is a $15 entry for all contestants (to cover the cost of a t-shirt).

The winner will receive a trophy, a grand prize (we don’t know what it is for sure yet, but it will be grand).

Second place gets nothing.

    You don’t mention where the contest takes place. Has location not yet been determined ? This makes a difference for me, but I’m totally interested.

  36. Grace on November 2nd, 2009 12:42 pm

    This is hilarious. I’m tweeting this shit. Also, Andrew, someone has spelled the word “wiener” incorrectly above. A small thing, but enough to make most grammar buffs recoil.

  37. Edward on November 2nd, 2009 1:39 pm

    Sidebets boys and girls …. sidebets !!!
