Mr. Humble Captures 6th Victory in '09
In a battle of mid-atlantic MLE superstars, Humble Bob Shoudt reigned supreme by capturing the Roy Rogers Roast Beef Slider Eating World Championship in Frederick, MD. Appropriately dubbed the Victorious B.O.B in September after winning four consecutive MLE events, Shoudt found himself in the winners circle again edging out The Black Widow Sonya Thomas 37.5 to 33 in the 8-minute contest featuring Roy Rogers new Roast Beef Sliders.
Taking third place with 26 sliders was The Lovely Juliet Lee, who didn't have to travel far from her Germantown home to compete for the Maryland fans.
Badlands Booker took fourth place and $250 with 25.25 sliders and Russ Keeler bested a crop of top-tier MLE talent to finish fifth with 22.75 sliders winning $250.
An Amateur Championship was held before the pros took the stage featuring fans of Roy Rogers selected from the crowd. Frederick Mayor Jeff Holtzinger finished in first-place and won the grand prize of a trip for two to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL.
