goldenpalaceevents.com key lime pie gallery

goldenpalaceevents.com has a gallery of the Key Lime Pie eating contest at Panama City Beach held during spring break. I think most of the pictures are from the amateur contest held the day before the contest won by Pat Bertoletti because I do not recognize the majority of the contestants. Several females competed in the amateur contest and apparently did reasonably well judging by the post-contest pictures.


Panama City Beach Key Lime Pie gallery

Larry McNeil has a gallery of pictures from the goldenpalace.net Key Lime Pie eating contest from Panama City Beach in Florida on the buffet message board. The contest was right on the beach.

Eric Broe, the 3rd place finisher at that contest (and winner of the amateur event) played football at Florida State University. It is not clear if Broe has retired due to injuries or if he is still a member of the team. Broe is a computer science major.


Pat Bertoletti wins Panama City Beach Key Lime Pie contest

From IFOCE.com Pat Bertoletti won his second contest in five days at the GoldenPalace.net World Key Lime Pie-Eating Championship. Bertoletti consumed 10.8 pounds of pie in 8 minutes. Tim Janus was the runner-up. Eric Broe, winner of yesterday’s contest for college students only, took third place ahead of Hall Hunt and Crazy Legs Conti.

The IFOCE press release mentions the contest as part of the GoldenPalace.net World Series of Competitive Eating, so the World Series is a term used to describe goldenpalace sponsored contests and not a new event.

Spring Fling Contests for jalapeno popper eating will be held in Tuscon, Arizona on April 7 and 8. Like the Spring Break contests, the earlier event will be open only to college students.

Collegiate Spring Break contests added

IFOCE.com announced that goldenpalace.net will sponsor two eating contests open only to college students that will be held at the Spring Break destinations of South Padre Island, TX and Panama City Beach, FL. The food item and duration have not yet been determined, but the first place prize will be $1000. If graduate students are allowed entrance, Hall Hunt will be the probable favorite for the Florida contest if Joey Chestnut and Pat Bertoletti stay at home. Contests at other Spring Break destinations are expected.
