After the Qualifying Rounds in the stores, all contestants will be ranked from the lowest to the highest time record. The Top 20 with the fastest time will qualify in the Semi-Finals match to be held on August 22, 2009. The top 20 will then be narrowed down to the last 7 semi-finalists who will compete in the Final Match on August 29, 2009 at the TriNoma Activity Center.
The Top 3 winning Finalists with the most number of totally consumed BigBite Hotdog sandwiches will win the following prizes, tax-free:
1st Place: P 500,000
2nd Place: P 150,000
3rd Place: P 75,000
One can employ a variety of strategies in competitive hotdog-eating. Some separate the meat from the bun, while some would gobble them all altogether. Some would go as far as to dip the whole sandwich in the drink to soften it and make it go down faster. "Different strokes for different folks," event host Paolo Abrera remarked.
Just like Tom, you too can go into competitive eating with 7-Eleven's Bigbite Match Hotdog Eating Challenge. For the complete mechanics, log on to http://eatingmachinesphilippines.com
Oh, and women shouldn't be discouraged from joining 7-Eleven's BigBite Match because one of the best competitive eaters in the world happens to be a svelte 105-pound woman named Sonya Thomas. Sonya holds 29 world competitive eating titles under her belt.
