Who should I back in this year’s Wurst Challenge?

I’ve got $20 set aside to support this year’s Wurst Challenge, but I’m torn as to which competitor I should back… Should I put my money behind defending champion Jason “Knifebeard SausageHawk” Youngs, reclusive roboticist Cre Fuller, local midwife turned professional sausage eater Kate Stroud, or one of the many others who are presently locked in heated battle for a shot at facing down one of the ten 20-foot-long bratwursts being prepared by the staff of Ypsilanti’s historic Wurst Bar? As I’m friends with several of these people, and don’t want to offend any of them, I’ve decided to leave it up to you as to who deserves my $20… my 20 votes as to who proceeds to the final round. Please look over their bios and let me know who you think is most deserving of my support by participating in the following poll.

    The internet tells me that people with less body fat can hold more in their stomachs. Which explains why eating contest world champs are often thin. Don’t count me out cuz I’m little.

    As of right now, Team Smoot’s appointed eater is way ahead, with 64% of the vote. Apparently, they put word out through Facebook and it’s paying off for them. If the rest of you sausage gobblers want a shot at my $20, you’d better start getting creative.

    With all do respect to every competitor willing to take their lives into their arteries in such a way, do we really want this meat eating challenge to be a sausage fest?

    My bad, I thought only the top three earners got to eat. Read twice, comment once.

    The polls are now closed, and I will be putting my $20 behind Team Smoot’s William Henderson.
