Less than 4 minutes… that’s how long it took for Yuan Yeat to demolish the Basement Brewhouse Burger Challenge last night!
Nine competitors took their seats just before 7pm as food blogger and event MC Jesse Freeman ran through the rules, while the Mighty Brew Beasts, fries and shakes were set down in front of each person.
The eating began at 7.15pm and within 4 minutes, Yuan – also known as @winnachickendinna on Instagram – had devoured everything to claim the $250 cash prize, as well as a Brewhouse t-shirt and cap.
Yuan, who lives in Ultimo, has only been involved in competitive eating challenges for a couple of months but is already ranked at number 20 in the official Competitive Eating Australia ranks.
The runner-up was Chris Hingston from Eastwood – also known as @fit_in_food on Instagram – and is a regular on the competitive eating circuit. He took home a Brewhouse Growler Gift Pack, a Brewhouse t-shirt and cap.
All of the other entrants managed to finish their meals within the 30-minute time limit and were rewarded with a drink voucher and a Brewhouse bottle opener.
