Adam Richman Beware - Death at Speed Eating Contest

By , Editor
Man vs Food Nation's Adam Richman take note.

A 77 year-old dumpling eating contest winner keeled over and expired after gobbling up ten vareniki in a Tokmak, Ukraine speed competition. Making matters worse, Ivan Mendel never got to enjoy his prize, a one-liter jar of sour cream.

No one knows freaking CPR in Ukraine?

So anyway, Adam Richman, who very wisely gave up televised speed eating contests in favor of coaching others, should probably consider having paramedics on hand while spurring his minions to ram foodstuffs down their gullets for fun and fame.
