Taco Bus is bringing back it’s El Jefe Burrito Eating Championship for a second year with more than five times the cash prize for the person who chows down a 2.5-pound burrito in the shortest time.
The competition takes place April 5, National Burrito Day, at Taco Bus Brandon at 301 S Falkenburg Road, Tampa, with the winner getting a $2,500 cash prize plus a WWE-style championship belt.
Second place gets $1,000, third gets $500. A spokesperson for Taco Bus says the event is even drawing some notable competitive eaters from outside the Tampa area, and that reigning champ Michael Jenkins, who won with a time of 2:22 last year, will be back to defend the title.
HOW CAN SOMEONE EAT 2.5 LBS OF ANYTHING IN 2:22??! OMG. There's no way I could do this, but I'd sure like to watch someone try!
