    I tried to turn the channel to watch the Olympics, I really tried, but watching those people on Fox try to eat several pounds of eggs, hot dogs and bull testicles was too compelling. Anyone else catch this show last night?

    Bull Testicles? I thought that was Fear Factor, the one they showed during the Superbowl. I was flipping channels between the GS skiing on NBC, the USA-Canada hockey game on CNBC, the Glutton Bowl, and WWF. I saw the butter-hotdog-mayo(8lbs!!!!! WHAT????)-tongue-burger, and the brains, didn't see the bull testicles...
    Seems like a disproportionate amount of them from the NJ/NYC area, we must be a huge group of Gluttons! [​IMG]

    I saw this show, although Im sorry I did. It wasn't too compelling except for the 130 lb Asian kid who downed 31 hot dogs and 53 or so cow brains!!! How did he do that?

    That show was the perfect example of "guilty pleasure"! I condemned it but kept watching it anyway. Absolutely disgusting, but watchable. I assume there was a lot of backstage barfing.

    I need some clarification here. They ate all of that the same day!?!? If so, then I understand the barfing comment. The food that the asian guy ate seemed to be more then could physically fit in him. I was waiting for something to burst ala Seven. In general a pretty disgusting show; but I watched it.

    I saw a little of it last night while waiting to head out with my girlfriend. I don't know which was more disgusting: this show or the fact that all Fox does is 480p and they call it high defenition.

    I'm still amazed that the 130 pound guy could eat 55 brains and live. He had an interesting technique though; he "swallowed" the food much like a dog or wolf while his fellow gluttons "ate" their food.
    About the bull testicles: the hosts kept referring to them as Rocky Mountain "Oysters" which is a euphemism. They didn't look nearly as disgusting as they were on Fear Factor. Must be in the preparation.[​IMG]

    It is shows like this on FOX that I don't get. THey can cancel Family Guy and the Tick, Think about canning Futurama and Undeclared. Lets put a show on to see who can stuff themseleves the most, or any of the other stupid shows they put on, such qaulity programming.

    What else would one expect from the network that gave us "exposes" about "alien autopsies" and "faked Moon landings." It's the National Enquirer of television networks. Disgusting.
