With eating, as in life, sometimes music and food go hand in hand. The musical stylings of Badlands Booker are legendary, and the food stylings of the Notorious B.O.B. can easily be compared to the over the top beats that the Notorious B.I.G. brought to the mic.
Recently, Palm Beach Happening caught up with this maestro of food to talk about how he became who his is!
What’s your favorite food? Hoagie
How did you get started in eating competitions? I could alwys eat a lot. I saw it on TV and thought I would try.
There seem to be many different styles of eating in competition. What is your philosophy on eating? Whatever works to get it down quickly. I may go through 3 or 4 techniques during a contest trying to find the best way.
Of all the events you’ve competed in, which is your favorite? Philadelphia Wing Bowl
Did you enjoy your time in the Palm Beaches? Absolutely, it is a beautiful part of the country.
Can you tell us a little bit about your previous experience in competitive eating? I have been in hundreds of contests and hold numerous World Records including the most food ever eaten both by weight and volume, 23.4 lbs, 2 ½ gallons of salmon chowder in 6 minutes.
What is the funniest thing to happen to you in your career? I am often mistaken for Brad Pitt AND THAT CAN BE FUNNY.
What advice would you give to up and coming eaters interested in competition? Give it a try, it is a lot of fun.
What’s your next eating challenge? A hamburger event
Anything else you’d like to add? Can’t wait to get back to Palm Beach area!
Of course, the corn eating contest is not the only eating challenge in the Palm Beaches. Become a food fighter in your own right by entering the Pizza Ball Challenge at Mizner Pizzeria in Boca Raton. Do you have what it takes to make it onto the Wall of Balls?
Palm Beach Happening will be profiling one professional eater a week in advance of their “Super Bowl,” the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, New York. We invite the competitors of the IFOCE to contact us if you have the intestinal fortitude to be profiled here, as a true Master of Mastication!
