YOSHINOYA: Gyudon Eating Contest Grand Winners

YOSHINOYA: Gyudon Eating Contest Grand Winners
All challengers were given fifteen (15) minutes to dig in and stuff themselves with the world’s best-selling Gyudon(beef) from Yoshinoya. Everybody had a hard time chomping down the heavy rice meal topped with thin slices of sumptuous beef. Some challengers are on the verge of tears as they tried to outdo one another. Our fellow blogger, Florencio Jusay Jr., grand winner of the media challenge, shared that on his third bowl, he was already crying. The grand winner eat the Gyudon while standing up. He remained standing even after the contest but I admire all of them because the challengers fought until the end as they flipped one bowl after another as many and as fast as they could. The top three finalists with the most number of bowls consumed and the least weight of leftovers after the allotted time were declared winners at the Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Challenge today, February 23, 2013. The Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Challenge is now on its fourth year.
The Grand Winner of the exciting Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest won for himself the grand prize of Php 100,000 pesos, beating 28 other contestants at the New Glorietta Activity Center in Makati, Philippines. He consumed eight ( 8 ) bowls of Yoshinoya Beef Gyudon.
Second prize winner is Justin Cardano. He won Php 50,000 pesos. I told him that I remember him from Chef Noodles Ddukbokki (떡볶이) Eating Challenge where he emerged as last year's grand winner.
The third prize winner got Php 25,000 pesos.
Our fellow blogger, Florencio Jusay Jr. or FPJ as we fondly call him, won Php 30,000 pesos for beating Romel Balbin of UNTV, DJ Totoy Bato of Yes FM, and Rusty Roman of Dyaryo Ngayon at the Gyudon Eating Contest for Media. FPJ's record is a total of 6 bowls which he finished in 15 minutes :)
Congratulations everyone! Don't sleep yet, try to walk first! (Jalan Jalan).
At the weekly qualifying rounds which happened last January 21 to February 15, 2013, the participants only had 5 minutes to finish the most number of Gyudon. They tripled the time during the finals and got a record-breaking 8 bowls. Each of the non-winning participants was given a consolation prize of P2,000 worth of Yoshinoya gift certificate.

Leading the pack is Aljur Abrenica who probably possesses one of the sexiest bodies in showbiz, not to mention a captivating smile :-). He doesn't need to say anything. His charm says it all.
He told everyone that a soothing massage is all he needs to rejuvenate, rest and relax.
Aljur shared that in the past, his friends would always invite him to BlueWater Day Spa because they love going there.
Aljur said,"Now that I’m one of the endorsers of BlueWater Day Spa, I will be the one inviting them to try the spa services at BlueWater Day Spa.

I enjoy their services and how therapists attend to your needs really well,” said Ian. “My personal favorite is the Aroma Chakra Massage.
