Guy Fieri »
Remember that ridiculous Guy Fieri/Smashmouth egg eating challenge I posted about last month? Yeah. Well it happened.
FNH reader Michelle’s mother went to the event, and here is her take on what went down:
Today was the Smashmouth Egg Challenge, with eggs cooked by our favorite douchebag Guy Fieri. My mother decided to go, simply because our beloved San Jose Sharks mascot would be there. After coming home, she told me a few highlights. First off, judging by the cheering, more people seemed to be excited for the Sharks mascot walking out than Fieri. Who could blame them?
There were also at least two body guards there for Guy. Because hey, you know how hostile people can get at egg eating contests.
When it came time for the actual egg eating, Steve had a big bowl of eggs that had been scrambled. But when he was eating, Guy decided to start adding mushrooms and onions. Go figure, he tried to act like he is the funniest guy on the planet. Shit hit the fan when he tried to add bacon to the eggs and Steve told him not to. Steve replied by saying this was not the deal; he was here to eat eggs and nothing but eggs.
Also during the contest, people in the crowd had become annoyed with Fieri, with some even questioning if they could throw eggs at him.
My mom’s view of Fieri? “The guy’s an asshole.”
Michelle also included a link to a few videos, and frankly, this looks like the most painfully awkward “event” in the history of man. Picture this. California. 2011. Approximately TWELVE people in the audience. That God-awful Smashmouth “All-Star” song lilting in the background. Fieri uselessly prancing around the stage screaming and desperately trying to be the star of the show. The Smashmouth guy eating the eggs like he was a little girl eating a bowl of spiders. The whole thing was REE-DICULOUS.
At the end of the day, the event raised $15k for charity so it wasn’t all bad.
(Thanks for filling us in Michelle! And thanks to Ashley for the photos from the event.)
