    Over 100 hopefuls have sat down at the table and attempted to devour this 5 lb. beast in under an hour and only 1 has emerged victorious.  That’s right - the ‘Fat Teddy’ challenge has less than a 1% success rate.  If that isn’t enough to scare you away, then keep reading.

    The Rundown: The Fat Teddy is a 5lb. Hamburger completely loaded with condiments and comes complete with a basket of fries and ketchup on the side!  To complete the challenge you must eat everything – burger, bun and fries within 1 hour of your first bite.  According to the rules: you may not get up or leave the table (even for the restroom), you may not receive help from anyone in eating your food and purging will send you packing.  The massive meal will run you $39.95 plus tax.

    What’s in it For You:      If you are so fortunate to conquer the Fat Teddy Challenge, consider your meal on the house.  Chubby Ray’s is also so gracious as to give all of its challengers a free t-shirt just for giving it a shot.  However, nothing compares to the honor of establishing your name in Louisville eating challenge history by being only the 2nd to take down the Fat Teddy - ever.

    Do you have a hard time backing down from a dare?  Are you a food fiend?  Do you find yourself finishing your table-mates’ food when going out?  Then I personally challenge YOU to conquer the Fat Teddy!  In the next week, if you can complete the Fat Teddy Challenge, document your valiant quest with photo/video and tell us about it!  We’ll even send you to a Louisville Bats game on us and share your accomplishment in next week’s follow-up article.

    I personally would not be able to complete this challenge, I cower in fear, but I have no problem rewarding you for your in-human achievement.  So, do your research people and check out the YouTube video below of a failed attempt at the challenge before heading to Chubby Ray’s at 3910 Ruckriegel Pkwy.  The Fat Teddy Challenge is no joke, eat responsibly.
