The first Cheeseburger Eating Championship in Ukraine was held on September 18 in Odessa. The event was organized by the Billy’s Hamburgers cafe, where the championship was held.
Those wishing to take part in the duel had to fill out a questionnaire, pass the selection by the jury and fight in the battle for the title of the Odessa King of Cheeseburgers.
More than 500 applications were received, of which 12 finalists were selected. The main idea of the competition was to eat 12 cheeseburgers in 15 minutes. Famous Odessa musicians and bloggers followed the transparency of the competition: Zloy, Call Me Artur, DJ Symbiothic, Nikita Idi Syuda and Artem Vizart.
It is interesting that among the participants of the competition there were not only guys, but also girls who created worthy competition for the guys. The championship was attended by several students, a bartender, a musician, a professional boxer, a yoga tour organizer and even a bank employee.
All contestants used different tactics of “eating” cheeseburgers. Someone ate very quickly and also quickly left the race, someone calmly alternated food and water, energetic students danced, someone ate standing up, and someone just came to have a free lunch and did not strain too much.
There were whole fan clubs among the fans who came to support the guys.
The championship was held in an atmospheric establishment where authentic American hamburgers are prepared every day according to the recipe of old man Billy from California.
Billy’s Hamburgers decided to organize such an unusual Championship on International Cheeseburger Day.
The undisputed winner of the championship, the Odessa King of Cheeseburgers, was student Vadim Hasanov, who ate 11 cheeseburgers in 15 minutes and received the promised prize – ten thousand hryvnia in the form of a personal certificate.
