Lucrative Washington state eating challenges past & present

Big Al’s in Vancouver, WA (north Portland, OR area) has a 10 pound burger challenge that will award a 46 inch TV, a Sony home theater surround sound system and a Sony Play Station 3 to a diner who completes it. It is not clear if the prize package will be awarded to the first finisher, the fastest finisher or if all finishers will be entered into a lottery.

One of the largest previous eating challenge payouts also occurred in Washington State. The Google News archive has a column about Mandy Brown, a school bus driver weighing 125 pounds, being the first to complete a meal billed as the world’s largest chicken fried steak at Thudpucker’s restaurant in Spokane in 1992. There were 850 previous unsuccessful attempts at the challenge before Ms. Brown finished it in 84 minutes and she received a prize of $1,200.
