Well, yesterday afternoon, I thought that I was man enough to finish the drill. So, I decided to take on the challenge!
How do you eat a five-pound gummy bear?
One bite at a time!
This is a giant gummy bear, and I was unsure how to approach it.
I decided to cut off a part of the bear's foot to start. It seemed like that was the most humane option.
Feeling strong at the beginning of the challenge!
Making great progress on piece number one.
Ready to make the second cut, so I went with foot number two.
Whew, halfway through the second piece, I started to lose focus and stamina... tried to watch Project Runway to keep my mind off the eating challenge, but it wasn't working. I tried telling myself, "Pack it down, Kobayashi!" But, I was getting weak, my jaw was hurting, and I could feel myself falling down on the job...
Finally, after finishing piece #2, I just had to admit defeat and give up. I had considered myself to be a strong entry into the field of competitive gummy bear eating, but I let myself down and actually consumed a very small amount of the bear:
I guess this is like the time I challenged my dad and Jillian to the milk chugging contest, and I got completely schooled by both of them. I again overestimated my own pigging out abilities. I guess I'll just have to train harder.
Saunders and Katie Anne have joined in on the challenge, and they're picking away a little bit at a time on the remainder of the feet. Hopefully, they'll have more endurance than me!
