From your mother’s adobo, to the isaw and the betamax, it’s safe to say that Pinoys love to eat. So much so in fact, that no animal part or organ goes to waste—much to the horror of animal welfare organizations.

Now, with 7-11’s Big Bite Match, we will be able to measure just how enormous our appetite is. From June 26 to August 15, the chance to take part in this gastro-numental event is yours. The challenge is simple: Just go to your friendly, neighborhood 7-11 outlet, avail of the Big Bite Pack, and wolf down/gobble/eat the hell out of 5 hotdogs in the shortest time possible. The fastest eaters will then be invited to the Big Bite Match finals at the Trinoma Activity Center on August 29, 2009 where the chance to win 500,000 pesos awaits.

Think you can stomach all that? Well, here’s competitive eating’s top fiver. Let these mythical munchers inspire you!
