After nearly six weeks of prelims, the Go Go Curry Eating Championship is happening a week from Saturday (June 5th) at 5pm inside of Go Go Curry (on 38th btw. 7+8th). Space is tight, and tickets to the event are incredibly scarce- but finalist (and Profiled Midtown Lunch’er) Will Millender has agreed to give up his guest ticket to one lucky Midtown Lunch’er. He’s looking for a Flavor Flav style Hypeman (or hypewoman) to cheer him on as he attempts to defeat last year’s champ, “Gentleman” Joe Manchetti. And to sweeten the deal Go Go Curry will toss in
a special prize as well to the lucky winner (we’re guessing it involves free food of some kind) 5 free medium size curry coupons. To register to win, tell us why you deserve it in the comments.
Need some inspiration? Watch Will’s qualifying video after the jump. (Warning: If you’d be embarrassed to be seen at work watching an enormous man eat two plates of Go Go Curry in 42 seconds than the video after the jump is NSFW.)
Last Chance to Qualify: Tonight from 6-8pm Go Go Curry (on 38th btw. 7+8th) will hold the final qualifier for their Eating Championship on June 6th. Have dreams of un-seating last year's champ, Gentleman Joe Manchetti? His time of just under 42 second is the one to beat.
