The Great Lovin Malta Rib-Eating Contest
There was no contest
Life at Lovin Malta gets harder everyday. This week we were tested beyond our limits. We held a rib-eating contest.
First we wore our bibs.
Then we were served six steaming racks of smokehouse ribs by Chef Eric Magro.
These tender babies were tender AF and slathered in Hanks' signature BBQ sauce.
We hit two minutes on the timer and let it rip.
It was immediately obvious the girls were going to have a tough time.
Ann's time was mostly taken up laughing and enjoying life.
Kira got traumatic flashbacks of her days as a vegetarian.
Chucky ploughed through the ribs like his life depended on it.
But nobody could match the skilled athleticism with which Chris tore through those delicious ribs.
In fact, he kept eating till long after the two minutes were up and even took home a doggy bag.
These are the official results:
In last place: Kira Drury who managed only five ribs in two minutes.
3rd place: Ann Dingli who swallowed six ribs before time was up.
2nd place: Chucky Bartolo who ate a total of eight ribs: four per minute.
1st place: Christian Peregin who ploughed through 9 ribs and still had space for more.
Now it's your turn. Challenge a friend to a rib-eating contest by tagging them in the comments below or on Facebook. We'll choose a winner at random and you'll eat on Hanks.
