Duo Takes Wis. Challenge, Eats 12 Lbs. Of Pizza

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Two men with big appetites have won a pizza challenge in Oshkosh by downing 12 pounds of pizza in an hour.

Clay Luttrell and Juan Rodriquez became the first duo in four years to finish Polito’s Monster Pizza Challenge.

The challenge dares teams of two to finish 12 pounds of pizza in an hour, with no vomiting or trips to the restroom allowed. Win and you collect $500; fail and you have to pay $49.95.

Luttrell and Rodriquez won Aug. 9 at the Oshkosh location of the Stevens Point-based restaurant.

A Stevens Point Journal report says the challenge has drawn more than 300 attempts.

Two “professional” eaters are scheduled to take the challenge Friday, including a man who once ate a steak weighing nearly 5 1/2 pounds.
