    These challenges are a gimmick. They know that 75percent of the ones that try it fail it so thats why they put up these cash awards knowing its nearly impossible to complete it. Maybe Chestnut Bertoletti or a very select few can complete the job. Another ripoff is this black rock tavern 6lb burger . in nyack ny . Its more like 9lbs with all the toppings if you ask me. Rubber gut was able to do it and all she got was a free lunch out of it.

    I live in Augusta GA and looked up the Romas 28 inch pizza challange that I could definetly do. I was really looking forward to a free 28inch pizza and $1000 but they said they stopped doing it :(

    It is good to know which challenges offer cash (reportedly via OJ) versus not. The challenges are always to bring business to the places which offer them, whatever the prizes, free meal or the satisfaction of completion and a photo or one’s name. There is no regulation for these challenges, so this is a great place to share information. Rubber Gut? Great name.

    OJ, you forgot the Pancake Challenge in Seiad Valley, Ca, where the prize is $20 cash, in addition to a free meal:

    I also thought there was a pizza challenge in NY (Long Island?) or maybe CT that offered $500, similar to the Pointerseaurus?? Maybe it has changed since?

    OJ: also there is the Belly Buster Pizza challenge at Pizza Party in Santa Clara, where the prize is $100 if you beat Ben Monson’s record time of 6:05:

    It’s an old list. Look at the date of the original post! If OJ scanned the database today, the challenges you mentioned would be on the list.
