TikTok star Jason Derulo challenges The Rock to a July 4 eating contest

In a TMZ.com interview, TikTok star Jason Derulo challenged former pro wrestler The Rock to a July 4 hot dog eating contest. He recently attempted to eat 22 burgers (finishing 20) to celebrate surpassing 22 million TikTok followers. Bleacher Report has a transcript of his challenge:

It would have to be The Rock because I don’t think nobody else could come close,” Derulo said when asked who he’d want to do an eating contest against. “…I think I could take him. I really do. My security guys are big guys, and I eat more than all of those guys…The Rock, I know you’re notoriously a big eater, but I’m a big boy. I’m calling you out right now. I guarantee you, if we do this on July 4, you vs. me, a hot dog eating contest, I’m gonna come out on top.”

Ringer.com on NFL offensive linemen diets

Ringer.com has an article about diets NFL linemen eat to gain weight for football.

Bartch is a big guy, 6-foot-6 with a flowing mane of auburn-colored locks, but by his admission he was “never a tubby kid” growing up. Packing on that much weight to pursue his dream job was an arduous process; his days were full of rigorous workouts and endless eating sessions, so Bartch devised a hack. The summer after his sophomore year, he streamlined his breakfast. Instead of eating a giant meal with a host of individual items, Bartch combined them into a smoothie consisting of seven scrambled eggs, a tub of cottage cheese, grits, peanut butter, a banana, and Gatorade. He drank that four days a week, and it helped him grow from 250 pounds to 276 by the time school started again. The way he saw it, it was just a way to cut down on all that chewing. When this year’s combine rolled around, it had been years since he’d consumed the shake, and he hadn’t thought much about it.
