Rouses Crawfish Eating World Championship

Location: New Orleans, LA
Date: 04-11-2015
Winner: Adrian Morgan, with 1.8lbs in 10 min!


Let it be known that Adrian "The Rabbit" Morgan knows his way around a crawfish. The New Orleans local powered his way to his second consecutive victory at the 2015 edition of The Rouses Crawfish Eating World Championship, besting his foe Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas in doing so.

Morgan's manual dexterity is his secret weapon—dude's got fast, strong fingers, perfect for separating meat from bone in the chicken wing discipline or flesh from shell when it comes to the mighty crawfish. Or, presumably, undertaking minor mechanical tasks, such as assembling an IKEA bookshelf or side table. We bet Adrian Morgan could assemble a full-sized Regissör bookcase in the time it would take the average person to assemble the much smaller Klimpen. It's all in the hands, people.

Props to Cut Off, LA, local Scott Mac Malcombe for his second-place finish. Local knowledge put to good use, no doubt. Results below.

This contest took place at 1pm on Saturday, April 11, 2015, at The French Quarter Festival, outside the Old US Mint, between Barracks and Esplanade Streets in New Orleans, LA.

RESULTS! 1st- Adrian Morgan, 1.8lbs 2nd- Scott Mac Malcombe, 1.6lbs 3rd- Sonya Thomas, 1.4lbs
