Takeru Kobayashi -- World Competitive Eater
First I tried to make the pork chili (scroll down for recipe). That was okay, but it wasn't going to cut the mustard...so there I was...starting from scratch. Oh, the agony!
Then it hit me. A theme: "Everything but the bun." It would be decadent, thick, fatty, meaty--enough to make your heart stop beating...or as Paula Dean might say, "enough to make your tongue jump out of your mouth and smack you around"...or something. I mean, I've been watching enough of Gordon Ramsay to know that you can't overcomplicate a recipe when people expect just good ole hearty chili. Yes...I decided to make a chili called everything but the bun--just as if you were eating a chili dog without the bun. Aha!
Anyway, at KSPR, there were six entries...some were healthy, others were spicy...but ALL were DELICIOUS!!
Are you still with me?
It came down to just two crock pots--my news director's and mine. My hands were sweating; my lips were trembling. My stomach was twitching. I was so nervous. Either that or I ate too much chili.
But then my General Manager called out my name, shook my hand, and said..."sorry". In a flash, the COMPETITION WAS OVER!!!! I mustered out a smile and a laugh, but on the inside I was looking around the room thinking... "oh the humiliation!" No one liked my idea! My life is over! How will I tell my mom?
But then...a second later...My GM (still shaking my hand) said, "Ha! Just kidding, because Michelle, you are the chili cookoff winner!" Actually, I don't know if he really said that because my head was spinning so much, and I just couldn't believe that I had won... I mean, just seconds before my boss' boss had ripped my heart in shreds! It went from complete humiliation to total elation! Egads!! I finally done right.
And here it is... the glory... the sweet taste of success...
