Mark vs Food Part III Recap





Only a few weeks later, Mark vs. Food Part III is in the books. Thanks to the Emerging Leaders Organization at The Brighton Center, Arnie's on the Levee, Jay Cruz of Rewind 94.9, Patrick Towles, Ozzy Sheehan and my binging buddy, Will Chambers - we collected around $400 for The Brighton Center.

The Challenge was brand new, and highlighted Arnie's brand new food menu. The All-Dog Challenge was 5 types of dogs. Sounds easy, right? There was indeed a reason I wasn't allowed in the kitchen to preview what I was about to have to gorge on. I would have quit.


They were enormous. They were covered in peppers, onions, jalapenos, chilis, at kitchen sinks. Just kidding about the latter - but it was a lot harder than it looked. Probably the second hardest challenge I've attempted, after Tom + Chee's Baker's Dozen Challenge .

The end result was another victory for the FTM crew. Will and I ate 7 of the 10 dog dogs in front of us. The Youngins (Pat and Ozzy) finished 4.5.

It was a great turnout during the first UK game of the tournament. Seeing as though we're now in the final four, I think we may have to do a Mark vs. Food every first game of the tournament.

The video of the challenge is a little long, and my video editing skills are amateur at best - so I'll just post the intro and if someone wants to be awesome and edit it for FTM, I'll be your best dude.

Raised to date: $1400.
