So, about that Denny’s eating challenge in New Haven…how many red velvet pancakes did “The Bear” eat in 20 minutes?
You may remember that the #1 ranked independent professional eater in the world, Jamie “The Bear” McDonald took on a new challenge off the Denny’s “Hobbit” menu – 20 minutes to eat as many of the Radagast’s Red Velvet Pancakes as he possibly could. But he didn’t do it alone – he welcomed challengers, including Yale students, to compete against him. And, to even up the odds, they could do it in teams – he’d eat by himself, against teams of two.
So, now that the dust has settled at the Denny’s in New Haven, how did the challengers fare against the professional eater? Well, if this video is any indication, not well. Not well at all…
My favorite part is clearly the guy dressed as Santa at the end who just completely gives up halfway through.
You read that final score right – in 20 minutes, “The Bear” ate 90 pancakes…and it took four people sitting next to him to eat just nine more during that time.
