Gluttonous Queens past and present

A clip of last Wednesday’s weekly eating contest between Natsuko “Gal” Sone and Nobuyuki “the Giant” Shirota has been uploaded to youtube. The challenge is to eat 6 kilograms of curry in under 15 minutes.

The blog of the restaurant where the challenge was held has an entry about the contest.

A youtube clip of some of Takako Akasaka’s contests is also available on youtube. She competes against a champion German eater in consuming 6 meters of frankfurters in Berlin and has another 6m sausage contest against Misao Fujita. She also participates in a wedding cake eating contest wearing a wedding dress.

This blog entry from April 2005 has an interesting comparison between Food Battle Club and TV Tokyo’s oogui programming.

    And a wedding cake eating contest was one of the battle of “all Japan sweets queen championship(the third)” of TV champion.It was aired on Apr.24,1997.This battle was the final round.There was two famous topics during this battle…She dropped the zipper of her back to eat more.She announced her retirement and would marry the fiance who used to be one of her fans.But she didn’t marry him after all,and has continued to participate the contests until about 2003(I’ve forgot exact record).

    Add…she used to be famous to enter much suger into a glass of water.She had said it whets her appetite.But in the book published in 2002,she said she quitted this habit recently.
