    Does anyone know if the burritos weigh the same as the ones eaten in last year’s contest? If so, then Joey downed almost 12 pounds! That’s definitely one of the higher quantities by weight for a non-dunking contest (not counting ‘semi-solid’ foods like grits).

    This win looks like a smoke-out….. even without the pressure, Joey delivered.
