Watch my brother Andrew McKirdy and I display our professional eating techniques on LIVE TV! This “On The Go with Joe” segment was produced by KPTV Fox 12 for Good Day Oregon. We were promoting the BBQ and Brewfest “Smokin’ at The Ocean” which featured The World Rib Eating Championship held my Major League Eating in Lincoln City at Chinook Winds Casino.
We had a blast representing for our city Seaside, Oregon. This was shown across the state, and Southwest Washington. We had to wake up around 4 A.M. to get camera ready. Mainly, I just had to put pink gel in my mohawk. It looked like a rib, and I thought it would bring me great fortune in the eating contest. I ended up putting down nearly 4 pounds of succulent rib meat in 12 minutes, beating Andrew by a narrow margin respectively. I entered this Championship 3 times. I was paid $100 to do this interview, and another radio show on 1190 KEX. Plus, I scored a free hotel suite for a few nights, and a handful of buffet passes. I was ranked #45 on Earth in competitive eating. Keep that in mind next time you invite me over to your house. I will eat all your food, and tell you it was about to go bad. More soon. Thanks for visiting my absurd blog.
