Who:
Mark Lockwood
Details:
Mark's maiden challenge -- and only his third time ever at a BW3's. On the day prior to the challenge (Sunday), Mark was ill (unrelated). One beneficial side effect of the illness was his system purge, making way for the goods. He decided to take nourishment from forty-two (42) regulation wings in under an hour.
Step 0 -- Mark ordered two (2) dozen wings. They arrived, doused in sauce like they were in a commercial.
Step 1 -- Mark dove in, unafraid to make a mess. Napkins piled up, wet-wipes were worthless and weak. In the midst of this first set, a random waitress who had caught word of the challenge stopped by:

Worker bee: "What kind of sauce, Blazin'?"
Mark: "No, it is not."
Worker bee: <extraCheery>"Well, that's not really a challenge, then, is it?"</extraCheery>
Mark: "Go away."
Peanut gallery: <heartyLaughter />

Step 2 -- ordered eighteen (18) more wings. They arrived and, per Mark's reaction at the first bite, were more thermally energetic than Billy blue blazes. After a brief cooling period, the eating resumed. Mark methodically masticated this batch with little fanfare -- straight business. Eight (8) left, then five (5) left, then two (2), then -- that's it, all gone! Forty-two (42) wings in thirty-seven (37) minutes. From sickness on Sunday to greatness on Monday.
Mark mentioned his plans for the rest of the day: go to bed at 7pm.
Tastes like chicken!

Who:
AJ Horn
Details:
In this spontaneous challenge, AJ decided that he was hungry for thirty-six (36) wings from BW3's -- as he sat an looked at the menu. Spur of the moment! He started out the order with eighteen (18) medium and twelve (12) spicy garlic wings. Not much of a reaction from the waitress -- she was not impressed. This chicken hawk tore through the wings like it was his job, barely stopping to sip his tasty beer. By the fifteen minute mark he had already pecked away at twenty-one (21) of the first order. A judge, with weather eye open, only occasionally had to point out the stray hunk of gristle that might have tried to escape AJ's wing trap.
Time to order some more! "Sorry, b-hole", AJ surely thought, as he opted for the Hot flavor this time.
Next stop, thirty-four (34) wings: "that's the wall". AJ seemed to think that he was done. Wrong! He was told that he needed just two (2) more to make it to his stated goal of three-dozen, and promptly grabbed another delicious wing.
And finally, "ahh". That was the one he was looking for -- the last one. Thirty-six (36) in thirty-two (32) minutes! Next stop: KFC for dessert.

Who:
Matt "Roobus" Hazlett
Details:
Matt, in his first entry in the food challenge arena, set out to enjoy a hearty helping of chicken wings from BW3's. The first order was eighteen (18) wings: nine (9) Caribbean Jerk, nine (9) Sweet Barbeque. As with many challenges, the initial pace was strong. Matt, using his patented technique of splitting the wings with one smooth thumb stroke, was downing wings like it was his job. And, what goes with chicken? Well, according to Ludacris, "beer" -- so Matt had a tall twenty-two (22) ounce beer to add to the enjoyment.
This first eighteen (18) -- child's play. As witnessed by one of the pictures in the Chicken Wing gallery, though, Matt was a little surprised by the girth of the some of the wings in the second eighteen (18), all of which were all Caribbean Jerk.. Without regard for his well-being, he pushed on with the task. It was not until the twenty-eighth (28th) wing that Matt even had to set a wing down to pause and reflect. Then, as the timer neared the end, the pace drew to a halt at thirty (30) wings. While we may never know, some spectators believed that the fish sandwich from Burger King a few hours before the event may have still been swimming about in Matt's belly, taking up precious cargo room. Not bad for his first event, though.
Some notable quotes:
  • "I haven't eaten for a straight hour, well, ever!"
  • "Another one and I'll fuggin' blow!"
  • "After a while, chicken starts to taste like shit." So, apparently, the ol' "tastes like chicken" rule is flexible.
Another tidbit: word of Matt's challenge seemed to have made it around the employees a bit. There was a hefty waitress, waiting in the wings, eyeing Matt, admiring his skills, and licking her chops. But, that is a challenge for another day (and a different challenger, probably).
Did not achieve goal! Matt was attempting to devour three (3) dozen wings, falling just short. Well, at least he kept down the tasty treat -- Caribbean Jerk out through the nose would stick with you for a while...

Brian Morris
Details:
Brian swiffed down thirty (30) chicken wings at the SallieMae I.T. Shindig, chomping them down like there was no tomorrow. Making trip after trip after trip to the buffet table, Brian was especially bloated in the belly region (he also downed 2 mini BBQ sandwiches and 2 choco-chip cookies in the process). Congrats Brian! You da man!!!
