11:00 A financial services hack is about to attempt 50 munchkins in 40 minutes. This strikes me as a bit weak but then again, so many of you have failed at even weaker challenges (20 vending machine items over the course of 8 hours? 5 bags of chips in 100 minutes) that we'll take it. Mixed box-- chocolate glazed, regular glazed, sugar coated, jelly filled. He's 24, 5 '11 and 175 lbs. Contender is a water polo player in his free time and "there is talk of some Speedo-wearing consequence if he fails."
11:10: 15 munchkins down, 35 to go. "Faster-than expected start."
11:12: I've been asked to add that "he is a premature balder, and also considers himself a Professional 'Bro'."
11:24: 34 down, 16 to go. "He is slowing down though and is no longer talking smack. I told him he should be eating the heavier munchkins first, he responded with 'Shut the hell up.' Also, forgot to mention he had a Bacon Egg and Cheese a few mins before starting."
11:27: 37 down, 13 to go.
11:32: "This tastes like cardboard" he says. 43 down, 7 to go. Onlooker: "His face is starting to turn red and looks like he is in agony. He just left to get a glass of water. He is now telling people not to look at him."
11:35: 45 down, 5 to go. "He is completely silent. He is trying to drink water, looks like this is going to be a close/weak finish with the pace he is going at. Just looked into the box, only jelly munchkins left. He's too sick to be pissed."
11:39: "He hasn't eaten a single munchkin in the last two minutes. This embarrassing."
11:40: FAIL. "He called it quits with four munchkins remaining. After a few gags, he headed immediately for the bathroom."
Postmortem: I don't want to be too hard on the guy but I can't hold back here-- this was a cake walk of a challenge that resulted in an abysmal fail. I'm sickened by the display today and the only thing that can possibly pull me out of this emotional hole is if someone successfully completes a Double Down this afternoon. That's it.
