Jack n Grill 7 pound burrito Wall of Fame

John Wenzel has a picture of the 7 pound breakfast burrito Wall of Fame at Jack n Grill in Denver showing the three women who have finished the challenge and will reportedly receive free food from the restaurant for life. Rager and Beer Monster has a blog entry about the wall of fame which says that the woman pictured flexing (reportedly a female bodybuilder) also ate a basket of chips and dessert along with her burrito.

Mongo Marquez also recently completed the challenge and ate dessert.

    If Mongo Marquez participated in the “restaurant challenge” then he should be suspended from the IFOCE. Assuming he didn’t compete last year, it might be a mute point anyhow.

    I’m really quite surprised there is that many random people that could eat such a big burrito.

    Does this have a time limit? If no time limit, maybe that explains it.

    That’s because their isn’t a time limit…. 7lbs. really isn’t that big whenit’s a soft food like an omelette/burrito. Not all that impressive.

    IFOCE’ers who complete restaurant challenges shouldn’t be suspended or disciplined, they should be commended and rewarded for helping advance and promote the sport of competitive eating!

    I know we’ve had this discussion on here before, but WHY do the Shea’s have such an aversion to their eaters participating in restaurant challenges? It’s likely because they don’t want restaurants profiting off of the publicity an IFOCE eater would bring them (instead of the Shea’s profiting) Although they’ll tell you it’s for “the safety of the eaters” because there’s not EMT’s on hot standby during the eating challenge.

    The first reason (the real reason) is lame because one person eating a giant burger isn’t going to bring a whole lot of publicity, especially if that person isn’t named Joey, Takeru, or Sonia (yes, Sonia).

    Mega Munch,
    I’m with you. IFOCE should smile with pride whenever their eaters conquer the unconquerable, and use it as promotion for IFOCE.
    The restaurants only really benefits when challengers fail, because they don’t have to pay off anyone. To have your eaters spend their own money, achieve the impossible, and make your league look even more incredible – what’s the problem? The eaters do all the work, and IFOCE gets the glory.
    When you can point even to your lower-ranked eaters, and show something amazing they did – like conquering challenges Man VS Food couldn’t – it’s a big win for IFOCE or whatever league the eater came from. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world when you could call your eating “headquarters” and brag about your accomplishment – and have them publicize it proudly, instead of being possibly being suspended or admonished for it ?!?

    I really couldn’t agree more! If the eater isn’t contracted through IFOCE they really should let them eat on these challenges all they want. It appears the Shea’s have eased up a bit on the rules though, didn’t Tim Brown and Hall Hunt just collect $500 for eating at Randy’s?

    Also if the “safety” thing was really the issue, couldn’t an eater just bring an EMT or a RN with them to these challenges and not catch static?

    I truly respect the IFOCE for what they’ve done for CE, but I think restricting eaters to not beeing able to take on these challeneges (Which are fun to do) will only detract really good eaters into joining. Cuz lets face it guys like Joey, Pat and Takeru (guys who actually pull down decent money in the sport) are one in a Billion. But there are some guys out there that could prolly give the #5-#15 a run for their money, but might think twice due to the restictions…

    I’ve never understood the logic behind IFOCE decisions on whether or not to permit eaters to do challenges. I do believe eaters should consult MLE before making a decision on their own to participate. But, by the same token, the default IFOCE response on granting approval should be Yes!

    The only reason I can see for them disapproving a challenge would be if it involves food from a direct competitor of one of the IFOCE’s sponsors. But even at that, it’s not like the eater is endorsing the food, but I suppose it could be perceived that way. Perception, I suppose is reality, in a way.

    Like I mentioned above, if IFOCE doesn’t offer you a contract seems only fair they let their other eaters do challeneges (not competitions) as long as they aren’t making a bad name for themselves or the originization.
