Seth vs. 27 tacos — The Aftermath

When we last left you, Seth was about to attempt the 27 taco challenge.  We showed up with dozens of people to cheer Seth on.  The rules are simple : 45 minutes to eat all 27 tacos.    Reporters on scene asked Seth what was on his mind in the moments before started the challenge and he simply replied “Strategy”.

Did he succeed?  Did he remain undefeated in his career of food challenges?  Watch the video and find out :

Seth got off to a great start, but eventually could eat no more than 17 tacos.  10 tacos under the mark.  But he was valiente.  He never gave up, and he deserves our honor.

So where do we go from here?  There are rumors of people around our office who want to break 17.  Also Seth wants to improve his time on the Wing Coop 11 challenge and continue is Risk-like domination of the Salt Lake Valley by having his photo up at the Redwood Road location of Wing coop like it currently presides at the location in Olympus Cove.

Finally, we leave with some photos of the celebration of the occasion :

A champion will be made today…

Today at Chunga’s, taco enthousiast Seth is going to attempt the 27 taco challenge.  If he succeeds, he will continue to be known as a fearless food challenge accepter.  So far, he has successfully done the “11 challenge” at the Wing Coop and he has also eaten dishes at Chanon Thai (often awarded the City Weekly “best place to burn our tongue”) at a spice level of 5 and 10.

P.S. We didn’t even know they offered a 10 until they met Seth.  A true champion was recognized the moment they saw him eat the #5.

This is happening in minutes.

Wish him luck.

Pray for his stomach.
