How many Japadogs can you eat in 10 minutes?

Forget the Olympics, we have the competition of the summer right here at YVR! Japadog, located here at the airport, is hosting a hotdog-eating contest to see who can eat the most Japadogs in 10 minutes.

On Friday, August 17 from 12:30 – 1:00 p.m., six competitors will line up at the Haida Gwaii, The Spirit of the Jade Canoe in the International Terminal, Level 3 to compete for hotdog glory, $250 YVR bucks and a $50 Japadog gift certificate.

So you think you have what it takes? Potential contestants must visit the YVR Japadog food cart, located at Chester Johnson Park (just outside International Terminal, level 2) between July 13th and August 8th to submit an entry form. Contestants’ names will be randomly drawn on Thursday, August 9th and contacted by telephone. All participants will be awarded $15 YVR bucks and a $10 Japadog gift certificate, just for coming out and stuffing their faces!

If you think one yummy Terimayo may be your limit, come out to the airport on the 17th to cheer on the competitors and witness what could be the Olympics of eating.

    I submitted an entry form and was not phoned.  If any of the 6 contestants do not show up I would like be a replacement.
