    Big deal . You want a medal for finishing a 4lb burger. What the guy in PA did at dennys makes your stunt seem worthless

    That’s awesome Rich! You make such things look so easy. And Carlene is as lovely as ever! (My boyfriend said to tell you you’re a lucky guy!) 🙂

    You better believe he will finish the steak with a $267 bill hanging over his head.

    Pete, it WAS amazing! What other fine dining restaurant serves up a 120 ounce steak made up of top sirloin and filet mignon? Top quality food at a very reasonable price (if you finish it). I have no doubt you (and a few others) would be able to do so as I did.

    awesome job Rich,thats alot of food,only in Vegas,thats why Vegas Rocks! how was the creamed spinach and potatoes? and nice job too Porkslap,dont listen to the “douchey” haters either,Have A Nice Day 🙂

    Creamed spinach was very rich (lots of cream used), potatoes au gratin were rich (and very dense) as well, but they weren’t my cup of tea. I would have preferred mashed potatoes or a large bunch of potato strings or fries. However, the meal as a whole rates an A, especially including the six scoops of ice cream topped with fudge that they gave me afterwards.

    Rich I will definetly hit this up if I am in that area! The problem with most steak challenges is that the meat is so damn terrible…here it looks AMAZING! Was there a time limit? I appologize if this was stated.

    Nice job Paul. If you’re ever in the Boston area, you might want to try the Challenge Burger at Eagle’s Deli.

    “Our Challenge burger which is 5lbs of beef, 20 slices of cheese, 20 slices of bacon and of course what’s a burger without fries, and our challenge burger comes with 5lbs of fries!”

    Way to go Rich! So, let me ask you. From what you have said before, you waited three hours and had oatmeal and other items, and that put you back at 95%. So going by that, how much meat do you think you would have been able to eat after those three hours?

    1.) There is no time limit for doing the challenge (I took 40 casual minutes while being interviewed).
    2.) I did J.R.’s (along with Carlene) on the same day Cookie showed off by doing the steak in 7 1/2 minutes. I took about 15 while eating all the sides I could get my hands on before they disappeared..
    3.) After three hours, I probably could have eaten about 3-4 pounds more meat.

    “Pete it was amazing” and “They gave me six extra scoops of ice cream” . Some of the quotes from Locust Lefevre sharing his conquest of the $267 steak. Locust you just spit in the Shea’s faces with a stunt like that. They have done plenty for you in the past and this is thanks they get? You are damn lucky to be one of the old school names in the sport or they might have dropped you from the rankings altogether. I dont think anyone beside yourself and the wife care about that selfish shameless stunt you pulled . It is a disgrace and a violation of the IFOCE contract. I suggest you refrain from that type of activity in the future or just keep it to yourself.

    Yo anonymous @ 11:43 am, how in the heck do you know that Rich did not talk to the Sheas before doing the steak thing?
