I'm still looking for a serious challenger. Maybe rudeboi or djatc would like to redeem themsevles.



Date and time? Could do two of these or 150 McNugget, whichever would get more betting action. Three of these or 200 McNuggets is possible, but I would be a major underdog. Completely free for about the next two weeks. Then very little chance of being able to do it for a while

You think you can eat 150 nuggets?

I will take some of that action.

The 13th would be perfect for me. I'm having dinner with an old friend who used to do eating challenges and I'm sure he'd love to observe. I will bet up to $500. I think there will be no shortage of takers on the "no" at 150.

If you're serious we should go over the specific rules.

Wednesday evening would be perfect. One hour time limit, attempt ends with any vomit. I'll put up $500 (and maybe more) on 150 if I can also get a free-roll on 200.

Also, someone please bring a chess set. I'm really bad, but I have been been a lot on chess.com since summer started.

I'd like to get such a statement too. I think we touched on this topic at a former WoV gathering, but I don't remember what you said.

Regarding your request for a free-roll for getting to 200, I'm agreeable to that. How about you double the win if you get to 200 within the same 200 time limit. All this is contingent on some kind of statement on what your background is in professional eating. I'd like to get your permission to video the event and put it on YouTube.

Also, I motion to change the venue to the McDonalds at the Plaza. We got a lot of heat about recording at the D and had to move it outside. At the Plaza there is a common eating area for multiple fast food places, which I think will not attract as much attention.

Another issue is that right after challenge #5 McDonald's changed the recipe. I don't recall all the changes, but I think the average McNugget is a little smaller now.

I'd take the 'yes' for the right odds. PM me.

I also purely volunteer $20 towards the freeroll [additional to other, or as a part of it, Wizard decides].

Being a good sport, this on the freeroll whether or not I have any action on the other bet.

Grounds rules are needed.
Are the nuggets bought all at once or are they bought at intervals to stay warm.

I'll let the challenger decide that but I prefer to buy them all at once, or at least in large batches. Sometimes it takes McDonalds a while to fill and order and I don't want the challenger sitting there with no nuggets.

When I disclose what I've eaten in the past, you might want to back out of any bet. I know 150 is completely reasonable, not sure on 200, just because of how much everyone else struggled with 100. No matter what we should be able to work something out, the very least get a good video. Can always do a stack pancakes at Golden Gate, 100 McNuggets, then a meal at Hash House -- breakfast, lunch and dinner all at once. Too bad Mermaids closed or that would have been perfect for dessert. I highly doubt that's possible, but if there were increasing payments for each course I could enjoy taking a shot

google search for "McNugget nutrition information" says they come in orders of up to 40. I would say start with 120, then go in batches of 40.

I'm concerned we don't have enough time to properly agree on the ground rules and the betting.

I'd like to suggest we get to know you over the pancake challenge first, to be done on Wednesday. I will bet the "no" to incentivize you to do it, but only $100.

Great! Do you have a preference on time? I'm busy in the afternoon so would prefer either around 11 AM or 5 PM. Hopefully Axel and his crew will be able to attend.

As a word of clarification, this is a split off from the GOLDEN GATE PANCAKE CHALLENGE, because the challenge drifted to doing McNuggets again. However, it drifted back to pancakes, thus the change in name. In retrospect, I should have never split it off to begin with.

Having now watched a youtube video and seen a few online reports on these exact pancakes, can say one stack is a definite. Three stacks is virtually no chance, would have to be about +2000 for me to even consider trying. That leaves the question on the odds of two stacks? Have a much clearer good idea on that possibility tomorrow. The other question is how does one of these stacks compare to 100 McNuggets?

I think the challenge limits you to 15 minutes. Are you suggesting you could do two stacks in the same 15 minute time limit? Or would you request more time?

Unfortunately im on a very strange scheduled and most likely can't make it( I haven't even been to bed yet), a few people are out of town, and for the most part unless necessary im not getting up until the late afternoon as if I was on a late swing or graveyard scheduled. A few others are probably in the same boat as I am. I wish this was taking place much later and I would have made a point to attend assuming nothing came up.
I dont think I even got home the other day until about 9 or 10 am after a long day, then up and out n about 3 or 4 pm.

I know nothing about eating pancakes other than I like them with blueberry topping or strawberry syrup, lots of butter, and they make me very tired. I was up for betting the 150+ Nuggets without actually seeing or knowing much about the Challenger. I dont know what to think about the pancakes, I would just be gambling in the dark. I think I would have to be there and get a read on him and see the size of the pancakes. I was able to meet Pokergrinder and he's the only one I had a really good feeling about. He seemed like a no BS kind of guy and his confidence seemed overwhelmingly telling.

I think I will skip the betting on this one unless someone can convince me im foolish for not making a wager.

FYI I was leaning towards Mission until just before the challenge and then bet against him. I didn't think his Wife felt he could do it, he also was drinking the night before and probably gambling all night.
