1 The Carnivore Challenge
On the other hand, if you have a perfect two-man team, you may want to head to Georgia where you and a partner will have only one hour to work your way through a 30 inch pizza that weighs 11 pounds. It costs $50 to take on this challenge, but it's more than worth it if you finish. So far, only seven people have completed this challenge.
The prize: All winning teams will receive $250, which comes out to $100 profit per person after your entry fee.
2 The Big 29 Challenge
Want to keep all the glory (and the cash) for yourself? Then try your hand at the single-person challenge at Barlo's Pizza in Indiana. If you can conquer a 29 inch pizza all on your own within an hour, then you'll be a few hundred dollars richer.
The prize: The prize is a minimum of $300 and a maximum of $1000 – the website doesn't say how the payout decision is made.
3 The Inferno Pizza
There are a lot of pizza-eating challenges out there, but where most focus on size, Pazza Bistro went for heat. To conquer this crazy challenge, a competitor must eat an entire Inferno Pizza by themselves within 20 minutes. The participant must even lick the plate and their fingers clean, which wouldn't be so bad if this pizza didn't feature a super-spicy sauce, as well as slices of fresh jalapeños, habaneros and ghost peppers. No napkins are allowed, but you can have one large cup of water.
The prize: Those who can take the heat will win free soda for life, a free t-shirt and their picture will appear on the Wall of Flame for the world to see. As a bonus, you can get 10 percent off all future meals whenever you win the special tee.
4 The 8th Wonder and Mt. Olympus Challenges
Do you have a competitive eating dream team? If so, you might want to assemble the troops to take on the largest burger in the world. This masterpiece of food architecture weighs 105 pounds, measures 28 inches across and stands 11.5 inches tall. This challenge allows you to build a team of up to ten people, but even then, that leaves each person only one hour to scarf 10.5 pounds of food each. So far, no one has conquered this challenge.
For those with a slightly smaller posse, the restaurant also offers a 50 pound Mt. Olympus Burger that can be conquered by no more than five participants and allows eaters three hours to finish.
The prize: The 8th Wonder challenge carries a whopping $5,000 purse – that's $500 a person. No word on whether the price of the $260 burger comes out of your winnings or not.
As for the Mt. Olympus, winning teams can get the $130 burger for free, though the challenge used to come with a $1000 prize
