    There was slight capsaicin flavor in it, so yes, but they were quite tolerable in comparisons to most contests.

    There was big controversy after the match was over that is not covered by the video. The winner had chicken left on the bone on many of his wings. That is weight that gets picked up on the scale. Also, if a guy stuffs a whole wing under all the bones, then it might not be noticed because they don’t go through the bowl. Then there is the factor of a thick bone. People should only eat the drumstick piece of the wing because of the weight and that it is easier to eat the meat off the bone. This contest has huge flaws.

    I need to rewatch the video, maybe its not clear exactly how they did it. I assume everyone had a 3lb bowl of wings. Then you ate what you could in x minutes. Then all the remaining full wings, partial wings and bones were weighed. The person with the lightest bowl now would win. Then it doesnt matter if you hid wings or didnt clean the bones. That’s one of the things that bothers me about wing contests (and one of the reasons I retired). It’s not fair when a guy that cleans their wings loses to someone who doesnt. The weight thing seems the nest solution, unless i’m missing something.

    They weighed the eaten wings. Similar problem would exist in your method too. If people take wings out of the bowl and take 2 bites to make it lighter then what? Someone have to go through the bowls after the contest and pull out the wings with meat on them and those wings don’t count. It is a disgusting job.

    The only way around a contest with wings is to make it very clear to the contestants that the wings won’t count if there is a piece of meat on them. Otherwise, you go to a chicken nugget contest, that way the whole thing is eaten. Wings are fundamentally tastier and have less fillers.

    That’s the problem, you have to weigh everything. I don’t think there is a problem with my method. You start with 3 lbs of “stuff” Either the stuff goes down your belly, or back in the bowl. Am I missing something? EVERYTHING gets weighed at the end. Full wings, partial wings, and bones.

    Why would it matter if there were still meat on the bones in a weigh-in contest? It’s the not number of wings you eat and pick clean, but the amount of weight you take off of the 3 lbs.

    Yeah, that can work. Okay, now all we need is the Fat Kid Wing Sauce to have the “Annual Fat Kid in the making Wing Challenge”!

    Read above in my explanation. They weighed the bowl with the bones in it. If they throw a bone with meat in it, then that weight is counted towards victory. They can toss whole wings in the bowl and that would also be added towards the total.
