Sonya Thomas Retains Big Daddy Burger Title

Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas retained her title today at the Plaza Hotel & Casino Big Daddy Burger Eating Contest by devouring the monstrous 9 LB burger in only 27 minutes. The victory earns Thomas $4,000 in prize money, out of a total purse of $10,000 that was divided up amongst the top eight finishers. In a close second place, finishing less than half a pound behind Thomas, was distance and capacity specialist Rich 'The Locust' LeFevre, and in third was JAWS Chestnut.

Ray The Bison Meduna served as head judge. The dispute over the size of the burger compared to the human head of '80s television sensation David Hasselhoff was not resolved. Hasselhoff rejected the invitation to participate in a non-surgical/non-invasive weighing of the head at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, ensuring that the 'Burger Head' dispute will rage on.
