GKTW Event: Tastykake Eating Contest - April 26 - Vote ONLINE for Your Favorite!!!



Join us in raising funds for Give Kids the World during our first ever Tastykake Eating Contest!


Tastykakes are small snack cakes that are popular in the New Jersey area. This contest will combine our love of the delectable treat with the desire to raise as much money as possible for Give Kids the World Village.





WHEN: April 26, 2013 at DIS Game Night at the NJ DIS Meet Weekend

RULES: Our contestants have three minutes to consume as many Tastykakes as possible. The person who eats the most will be declared the winner!

And now....let me introduce you to our brave, hungry eaters....

  • Matt D. (darthvader92)

    My name is Matt. I am from Bergenfield, New Jersey and love videotaping and taking photography in the parks. I love everything about Disney and have a vast knowledge of all things Disney past, present, and future. Ask me anything about Disney and I should be able to help you or answer your question! I hope you'll support me in my challenge to raise money for give kids the world during the tasty cake contest.

  • Greg S. (DUHGreg)

    Greg is the tribal elder in this competition. He is hoping to rely on his years of experience in snack-cake eating to gain an advantage. That, and his fusion of Western (I TastyKake, therefore I am), Eastern (Be One with the Krimpet) and Vulcan (Krimpet mind-meld) philosophies.

  • Kevin T. (UCONNFAN's Fiance)

    Kevin is devilishly handsome and is known affectionately for his love of eating, video games, racquetball, and his fiance, UConnFan. He is proudly known among his college buddies for his record-setting consumption of 60 pieces of sushi in one sitting. He is a Disney Convert who has not yet joined the Disboards. He loves Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin and a tasty margarita on the Boardwalk. He currently works as a math tutor at the local high school while he studies for his actuary exams. That’s right, ladies, this man is handsome, athletic, and smart. Sadly, he’s taken. He’s a shoe-in to win this competition, so put your money where Kevin’s mouth is.

  • Kim M. (KimStaR)

    Kim is 29 years old and hales from Manalapan, NJ. She is a registered nurse by day, but Fly Girl by night. She has been visiting WDW since the age of 3 and has been over 20 times since. Her favorite resorts are the Poly, Yacht Club, and Contemporary. Kim's favorite thing to do at Walt Disney World is eat! She plans her trips around food and is frequently visiting the "Food Porn" thread and the Disney Food Blog. One of her favorite podcast segments is the Dining Reviews. Boma Breakfast and Kona Cafe breakfast are a few of her favorite spots. Kim has been known to clean her plate before her husband, Ian, takes two bites and then stares at his food waiting for him to give up. Although she is little, Kim thinks of herself as a bottomless pit. Watch out boys!




Those who are attending the NJ DIS Meet Weekend's Game Night (Friday, April 26) will have a chance to "sponsor" their favorite contestant. Sponsorships start at $5. The winning contestant will receive five extra tickets to our auction basket raffle at the Main Event on Saturday, April 27. Those who "sponsored" the winner will receive three extra tickets! It's a win-win!!!

If you cannot join us for the event, don't worry! You can vote for your favorite by going to the link below, donating a minimum of $5, and typing your favorite contestant's name in the "comments" box.

http://www.eventzilla.net/web/event?eventid=2138993004 (Code: NJDISMEET)

If Corey was one of the contestants there would be no question in my mind who to pick.

It would have had to be a steak or sushi eating contest for Corey to participate.
We don't have that in our budget- especially if Corey was participating!!!

Research

I think it's only fair that we share the research: http://www.wikihow.com/Win-an-Eating-Contest

Think of it as good-sportsmanship - so vote for the good sport if you haven't made a decision yet!!!
