On Tuesday November 29th, 2011, Phil “The Outsider” Furden put our Situation Food Challenge to shame, becoming only the second person to face and beat the stomach stretching feat. Furden, of Fallbrook, not only won, but he crushed the current Situation Challenge champion’s time by finishing it in just 50 minutes! Raymond Filippi previously held the title when he became the first person in JBD history to finish the meal back on October 1st.
If you’re unfamiliar with Jersey Boys Diner’s Situation Challenge, the meal is a staggering 24-egg cheese-stuffed omelet filled with all of our breakfast meats packed inside. If that’s not enough, it’s served on a giant pizza pan with two breakfast hot dogs and two pounds of hashbrowns.
Furden not only inhaled every last crumb, but he then added a milkshake to settle his sweet tooth after being crowned champion. For completing the challenge, Furden’s picture will be posted on the “Boardwalk of Fame” and he’ll receive discounts off future meals at JBD. Jersey Boys Diner also paid for his $25 feast and gave Furden a JBD t-shirt. Who will take the title from Furden? It’s anyone’s guess…Congrats Phil!
