I was entered last weekend to represent Tasty Chomps in a rib eating contest sponsored by Tony Roma’s, I was among a panel of local on air personalities, like Lisa Bell and Johnny Fernandez from WKMG, and AJ Maguire from the AJ and Ashley Morning Show on K92.3 FM. The event itself was for Limbitless Solutions, a team of volunteers nationwide who use their skills to make fully functional mechanical prosthetics to children in need of it.  As for the competition, the goal was to see how many ribs you can eat within three minutes, I came in with an empty stomach and a competitive mindset, psyched and ready to destroy these ribs that were to be placed in front of me. They announced all the contestants and who they were representing, and I was last to be announced, when the clock started I destroyed those ribs, eating a whopping 26 in three minutes to which I was surprised since I tend to be a slow eater. I actually won the competition and got a nice shiny medal and bragging rights forever. Later that day I would regret eating and swallowing semi whole those ribs…. However I must mention the event was very memorable as well as helping support a great cause, will I do another eating competition?…..Maybe
