Rob's $5 Footlong Challenge
 
So, yeah......my stomach is pretty much a bottomless pit. I have eaten an entire crave case in one sitting before and I have another food challenge on my mind. Njx, metsox and I were discussing this in the RDT and I am open to attempting to eat four Subway $5 footlongs in one sitting live via skype. I also would rather not just do this for the, well, fun (that's so not the right word) of it and njx and metsox have both said that they would contribute to a prize pool were I to complete the challenge.

Anyway, if enough people are interested in me doing this/contributing to a prize pool I will likely attempt this sometime in the next couple weeks.

We can refine the rules later, but I am thinking 4 sandwiches of my choice (must have meat) with lettuce, tomato, onion and whatever dressing/additional veggies I choose.

As for my stats, I'm a pretty normal dude. 6'0, about 200 lbs with no competitive eating experience, so rest assured, this isn't a hustle.

We can discuss rules, but I would ideally pick the subs. Honestly, I think I can only do subs with cold cuts. 4 meatball marinaras or chicken subs is probably out of range if I am being honest with myself.

I want to watch this.

This is a PPV event. I'm Floyd Mayweather up in this *****. Just kidding, but I'm not doing this just for fun. The sandwiches alone will run me like 22 bucks and I make $500 a month right now.

what veggies are we considering?

Mr. Goosemahn 02-06-2012 09:37 PM

How much would the ticket be worth?

CJSchneider 02-06-2012 09:40 PM

I know I could destroy 4 seafood footlongs.

Lettuce/Tomato/Onion must be on every sub. I very well may opt for sweet peppers in addition though. Veggie requests I can take and will consider them much more than choices of meat.

Yeah....I will set up a paypal. No set amount....everyone can only afford a certain amount (like I said, I make $500/month). If you can't afford anything, thats fine. I just need something to motivate me, because this will suck a lot.

CJSchneider 02-06-2012 09:42 PM

Whether I am in or not, I say "your body quits, you quit".

You should do it for the honor, not the money!

Nalej 02-06-2012 09:45 PM

For the love of the game!

Rob S 02-06-2012 09:46 PM

**** the love of the game. I am broke and I did that once with the crave case and it was terrible. I did my time in the minors.

Brent 02-06-2012 10:01 PM

I would do this without the motivation of money.

I am going to do it regardless thanks to very recent developments. If people want to contribute, thats fine, but it is on like donkey kong come this weekend or next regardless.

This is weak. Those subs are what, under 500 calories? I love you Rob, but step your game up homie.



I will accept eating challenges for food I enjoy. I am insatiable.

They are like 700 I think. 4 footlong subs is not weak.....this will be incredibly hard.

MetSox17 02-06-2012 10:19 PM

We just need to set up the rules on what will count as a "win" in the Rob v. 5-footlongs fight.

I do not believe this to be weaksauce by any means.

Nalej 02-06-2012 10:20 PM

Rent a donkey and I'm in

I think all that is left to decide is:

- Final agreement on sandwiches/toppings/bread
- Time Limit
- Bathroom Rules

4 subs is pretty difficult, but doable. My buddy did 4 Qdoba/Chipotle burritos, that was pretty impressive.

I think you're overestimating 2100 calories. I mean, I guess you have to factor this issues with the bread, but meh.
