first_imgThese are the times that try men’s souls, but stomachs will be bearing the burden for eight of the best competitive eaters in the world in the Quarantine Challenge. BetOnline and Major League Eating have teamed up to produce a single elimination, bracket-style contest that will see some of the most famous competitive eaters wolf down bologna, Oreos, baked beans and cups of noodles with all proceeds going to Feeding America.  What is the Quarantine Eating Challenge?The Quarantine Eating Challenge is an event in which eight competitive eaters will go head-to-head in a bracket-style elimination contest. The winner of each contest will advance to the next round. The events will be show on Major League Eating’s YouTube channel. What will be the slowest time posted in Round 1?Over 95 Seconds -220Under 95 Seconds +180When you watch a competitive eating contest, there is usually one contestant that is having a bad day. That could be for a variety of reasons, but it is not hard to imagine someone struggling to finish their two pounds of bologna. That has led to the competitive eating odds substantially moving on this prop since it first opened on Wednesday.Will any competitor have a “reversal of fortune” (vomit) during the event?Yes +800No -1600It’s rare to see one of the elite eaters upchuck these days, and it’s even less likely to see a reversal of fortune considering this is a speed-based contest instead of a quantity-based one. It’s difficult to see this happening during the first round (bologna), the semifinals (baked beans), or the finals (chicken noodles), but there is a chance we see it in the quarterfinals. A half-gallon of milk and 48 OREOS take up a lot of space in your stomach, and we have all seen the videos of what can happen if you drink milk too fast. Speed will be the determining factor on who advances to the next round in the Quarantine Challenge. This isn’t a quantity-based competition, as the goal is to finish a set amount of food faster than your opponent in each round. When is the Quarantine Eating Challenge?The challenge begins Friday, April 17 and ends with the championship round on Wednesday, April 22.April 17: First roundApril 19: QuarterfinalsApril 21: SemifinalsApril 22: ChampionshipHow to watch the Quarantine Eating ChallengeThe Quarantine Eating Challenge will be shown on Major League Eating’s YouTube channel.What foods are in the Quarantine Eating Challenge?Each round will feature a different food that the contestants must devour:First round: 2 pounds of bolognaQuarterfinals: 48 Oreos and half gallon of milkSemifinals: 1.125 gallons (10 pounds) of baked beansFinal: 10 Nissin chicken cup noodlesQuarantine Eating Challenge odds(All odds courtesy of SportsInsider.com)Favorites to winJoey Chestnut -110Matt Stonie +400Darron Breeden +400Gideon Oji +900Miki Sudo +1000Michelle Lesco +1200Nick Wehry +1200Eric ‘Badlands’ Booker +2000Unsurprisingly, the reigning mustard-colored belt holder is the odds-on favorite to win this event per the competitive eating betting odds.

Chestnut has set several dozen eating records over the course of his long career, and we know he will be tough to beat.Matt Stonie and Darron Breeden are Chestnut’s two biggest challengers according to the betting odds. Stonie is the only eater to unseat Chestnut at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest over the last dozen years, while Darron Breeden is seen as an up and comer in the world of competitive eating.What will be the fastest time posted in Round 1?Over 69 Seconds +110Under 69 Seconds -140The first round of the Quarantine Eating Challenge will be lightning fast. Bologna is one of the easier things to eat quickly due to its water content, and we have seen how quickly these competitors can scarf down hot dogs.
