The Rouses Crawfish Eating World Championship

Location: Pensacola, FL
Date: 06-01-2019
Winner: Adrian Morgan


The Rouses Crawfish Eating World Championship is back, people. B.A.C.K. Back. Back, back, back. And it’s heaed to the majestic Flora-Bama bar in Orange Beach, just outside of Pensacola, FL. Major League Eaters are warmly encouraged to salute the event’s return to our slate of sanctioned eating championships by signing up today!

Some recent history: In 2015, Adrian "The Rabbit" Morgan defended his title with back-to-back victories in the discipline, downing 1.8lbs of Rouses crawfish in 10 minutes, besting long-time seafood foe Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas by 0.4 lbs in the process. Morgan’s manual dexterity is the best in the business. Those looking to wrest the title away from Morgan this year would be wise to review game film of his crawfish-consumption technique.

Do you have what it takes to face the mighty Rouses crawfish boil over 10 minutes of sanctioned competition? Will you set a new world record in the discipline—presently 6.5lb in 10 minutes by the great Sonya Thomas? Does an early summer afternoon at the Flora-Bama watching the best in the world do what they do so well. This is the triumphant return of The Rouses Crawfish Eating World Championship—at the table or in the crowd, don't you ever miss it!

This contest will take place at 1pm on Saturday, June 1st, 2019, at The Flora-Bama bar, 17401 Perdido Key Dr, Pensacola, FL 32507.

TOTAL PRIZE PURSE: $2,000! 1st-$1,000 2nd-$500 3rd-$300 4th-$200
