    It looks like Erik edged out CL, right? There must have been something that made him decide to call it a tie.

    I believe his decision to call it a tie was most likely based on that since this was a debris heavy food due to the nature of the contest (on people’s faces, shirt, the table, etc). Everything was cleaned up and put back in the pie pans as good as is possible, but 4.88 and 4.85 are so incredibly close, that it wouldn’t be accurate to put one ahead of the other because 100% of the debris couldn’t neccessarily be accounted for because it was such a zany messy contest.

    BTW, great job to Ryan and Bison for taking the time to weigh everyone down the line before announcing the results and also for giving the eaters the opportunity to watch as their food was being weighed to make sure no pans were missed, etc. I hope future contests are all like that!
