I am proud to proclaim that Jamie "The Bear" McDonald delivered good on his promise to go All In on the World Apple Pie Eating Record and create a jackpot that will surely stand the test of time!
Lincoln, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
Doing what many thought impossible, Jamie "The Bear" McDonald from Granby, Connecticut created Competitive Eating history and set the verified and official World Apple Pie Eating Record at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, California earlier this month. The World's #1 Ranked Independent Competitive Eater consumed 9 pounds and 8 ounces of apple pie in six minutes during Thunder Valley Casino Resort's 10th Anniversary Celebration along with the grand opening of the all-new Buffet.
All Pro Eating, the world's only Independent Competitive Eating organization, was on-site to verify proper weights and standards and to manage the official time of the World Eating Record attempt. In addition, All Pro Eating confirmed proper safety standards were in place including EMT support along with oversight during the actual World Record Attempt.
Todd Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating, commented, "It's no surprise to me that Thunder Valley Casino Resort is the new home of the World Apple Pie Eating Record. Spending only a few minutes in their impressive casino and breathtaking buffet it was clear to me that Thunder Valley Casino Resort exceeds expectations in everything they do! After this unforgettable day of Apple Pie annihilation, I am proud to proclaim that Jamie "The Bear" McDonald delivered good on his promise to go All In on the World Apple Pie Eating Record and create a jackpot that will surely stand the test of time!"
"We are proud to be the new home of the World Apple Pie Eating Record." said Dawn Clayton, General Manager of Thunder Valley Casino Resort. "This was a great opportunity to showcase our new buffet with the preeminent Competitive Eating organization in the United States. All Pro Eating took an outstanding event and made it even better, Thank You to Todd and All Pro Eating for helping us certify the record."
Duane Luukkonen, Executive Chef at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, stated, "We knew Jamie was going to be able to eat close to 10 pounds of apple pie so it was a challenge to make a pie that heavy. Ultimately, we had to use a lot of filling to still satisfy the strict criteria of a pie. Jamie broke the record and thanks to All Pro Eating, The Buffet at Thunder Valley Casino Resort is now the home of a World Record!"
The World Apple Pie Eating Record attempt can be viewed in its entirety on Thunder Valley Casino Resort's website or their Live Stream channel.
