I Think Eating Contests Are Disgusting

    Eating Contestants Maybe Disgusting But They`re Fun

    I was in a few of them back in my school days. I could eat just 19 pancakes.  My brother was able to eat 27.   The money raised went to buy better food for the school cafeteria, some went to recreation and portion of it went to the food banks and soup kitchens...

    I Won't Participate

    I won't watch, enter or otherwise cheer for any of these idiots when so many other people are laying in back alleys starving.

    And Dangerous

    - It wastes food - there are people in the world who never see a drop of food and here we have conests over who can gorge themselves the fastest - it damages the stomach - it wastes time. Those people could be doing something productive.

    I Will Admit...

    I'll admit that when I started to watch the 2011 4th of July Nathan's Hot Dog Contest....I felt a little uneasy about it, so I skipped a few minutes. Then I started to watch it for real and I just couldn't, I just didn't like what I saw. Maybe it disgusted me, I'm not sure but I...

    Eating Contests

    Eating very much and very fast in one sitting.  I wonder how they do it without feeling sick afterwards?

    What A Waste.

         Not only is it really disgusting and unnecessary, it's wasteful.  Uh, what about all the starving people all over?  Just because you can afford it you're going to stuff your face until you're way beyond full while people are on the streets in...

    Yuck!

    Whenever I see one of these contests on TV, it just makes me want to throw up because I can just imagine how horrible these people must feel after "winning".  I also find the blatant display of excess shameful.

    Is This Entertaining?

    What happened to table manners? Clearly this gentleman needs a hand at dining etiquette. Weird, distasteful and whatever next?

    But I Still Like Watching Them

    as you may know, yesterday was the annual hot dog eating contest. (that skinny little joey chestnut won again, i seriously don't know how these people do it!) anyway, when they show highlights on the news it's pretty gross to see them shoving the things in their mouths like they...

    I Laugh When I Watch Them And Did Do One In School!

    When I was in high school (late 70's/early 80's), they had a Pancake eating contest to raise money for MDA - Muscular Dystrophy Association.  The local station showed us pigging out and we had fun with it. You were to try to eat the most in 15 minutes and people paid you per...

    Belly Bulge Fate

    Not only is contest eating awful to do and watch, it must be absolutely harmful to the delicate digestive system. I don't know how eating contestants' bellies don't burst. But I feel it will catch up with them eventually.

    Eating Contests Are Obscene!

    I find eating contests obscene. what must people in countries where many go hungry think of such greed and waste? It is really disturbing that people actually find this entertaining.
