7-Eleven's 1st Big Bite Hotdog Eating Challenge, Promo Details and Contest Mechanics

Philippine Seven Corporation, the company that manages the 7-Eleven convenience store chain in the Philippines, has officially launched the 1st Big Bite Hotdog Eating Challenge yesterday at Rockwell Tent, Makati. It was attended by the local press and members of the online media (mostly bloggers). Primarily, the event sought to introduce competitive eating to Filipinos in the hope that soon, we'll be able to join the ranks of the world's greatest competitive eaters.


Any Filipinos, regardless of age and gender, can join the 1st Big Bite Hotdog Eating Challenge. The qualifying round runs from June 26 to August 15, 2009. The grand finals will be held at the Trinoma Mall Activity Center on August 29, 2009. Below are the prizes:

1st Place: P 500,000
2nd Place: P 150,000
3rd Place: P 75,000
Consolation: P 20,000

Competitive eating is now a sport recognized all over the world, particularly in the United States and Canada. Tom "Goose" Gilbert, world-renowned competitive eater, wowed the audience during the launch when he finished 10 hotdog sandwiches in 3 minutes and 14 seconds.

Certainly, competitive eating requires great amount of strength, appetite and will power. To become a competitive eater or gurgitator, one should undergo training and employ various eating techniques. If you think you can eat fast and have the guts and the determination to succeed, this challenge may just be for you.

All you have to do is visit your nearest 7-Eleven Store, buy a Big Bite Pack and finish it as fast as you can for a chance to take home the grand prize of P500,000 in cold cash. Easier said than done? I daresay if there's a will, there's a way!

7-Eleven Trivia: Big Bite Hotdog Sandwiches is the best-selling product at all 7-Eleven stores nationwide. That means they get to sell around 16 million hotdogs each year.
