Winners and Losers

Last week Eater NY broke the news that popular NYC barbecue spot Hill Country was launching a food challenge, offering fame and free chow to those who would eat a seemingly insurmountable amount of meat in under an hour with no bathroom breaks. Now we learn that, less than a week later, a female competitive eater did it...in eight minutes and then ate more meat. While the restaurant has since increased the difficulty of the challenge, it wasn't a walk in the park for everyone:"...one other guy tried the new challenge before us and he got down to the cupcake, but ended up puking on his cupcake."
