Pizza contest draws local competitors

According to a news report from gazette.net, “The thought of eating 75 large pizzas in 20 minutes might have scared off the stomachs of mere mortals, but for 33 professional and amateur eaters, it was a matter of taking it one slice at a time.”

“Approximately 700 spectators witnessed the eating spectacle at the second annual Three Brothers Italian Restaurant International Pizza Eating Competition on Aug. 18 at Beltway Plaza Mall in Greenbelt,” said the story. “Professional eater Juliet Lee of Germantown returned to the pizza competition where she got her start in 2006. At that time, she took home first place as an amateur and earned free pizza for a year. This time, Lee, 41, matched her 2006 performance and ate 11 slices in 10 minutes. She tied for seventh place with three others in the professional division. As patrons gathered around the mall square, being sure to stay out of the ‘‘spray zone,” they saw messy faces and rapid-fire consumption of food as amateurs and professionals raced against the clock.”
