Dorm Wars 2012 was David Myers’ time to shine.
Myers enlisted in B.O.B.’s Dorm Wars team to “kill that Krystal eatin’ contest,” and kill it he did.
Myers consumed 107 Krystal burgers in the allotted minute.
“All was going great. The crowd cheered was cheering for me and then they went silent in awe,” Myers said. ” The next thing all I heard was heaving.”
“It was really cool, for the first 20 seconds, and then it got strange,” said Snora sumo dancer Valerie Pickens, who likened watching Myers’ gorging to going through Lee University with none of your friends getting engaged.
Joshua Kildaire, a medlin-man who was eating burgers during Myers consumption, was not as kind.
“It was the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. Dave will probably have to start having lunch at “Snacks N’ Stacks” in the library,” Kildaire said.
Myers, who grew up just miles from Cleveland in Polk County, Tennessee, spent his youth earning Polk County-street cred by eating anything he was dared.
“There really ain’t nuttin else to do in Polk County, so I would eat all kinds of vermin that were put in fron’o’me,” Myers said in an interview with the Leek before the games began. “That’s the only thing that made’em Krytals so tasty.”
Myers also attributed his success/shame to his “three squares at the Deacon.”
“I eat e’ry meal in the dinin’all. Myers said, adding, “Well, I used’a anyway,” following his grotesque display.
