Ed Cookie Jarvis is back in
biz after winning the Buffet Buster in Buffalo. An all you can
eat 10lb buffet tray which included Perogies, Roast beef sandwiches,
Cannoli's , & Chicken wings. Jarvis consumed 7.32 lbs of buffet to
barely edge out Buffalo Jim Reeves who finished second with 7.17lbs.
The 10 minute contest originally slated for 3pm was pushed back
almost 2hrs which worked to Jarvis advantage because it made him
even hungrier. The eaters were getting restless after being
subjected to listening to a Melissa Etherdrige impersonator playing
dreadful guitar licks. Brian Subich commented. "Is there any way we
can get her off the stage". Barney the cop from the Andy Griffith
show was on hand to keep law and order and make sure noone cheated.
When the contest began Jarvis used an unusual strategy of eating the
sugar laden cannoli's first. After noticing that Booker was building
up a lead Jarvis started going to work gobbling the perogies at a
record pace. The wings seemed to be the stumbling block in the event
as Beautiful Brian used the wrong strategy by appearing to open up a
lead by completing a substantial portion of the tray but leaving the
wings for last. The wings ended up having the heavier poundage of
the remaining foods. When all was said and done Jarvis was the
winner, Reeves second and Booker third with 6.91lbs. The rest of the
field finished quite strong with noone eating less than 5lbs and the
margin of difference was so close it was tough to tally.
