Chris Floyd, winning his third title in 2008.

The competition was tough. Many people applied and only an elite ten were selected. This serves at the official announcement of the contestants for the 2010 Carnival O’ Pizza Eating Contest.

Meet your competitors:

Chris Floyd
Four time, undefeated, Home Slice champion. “I’m coming into the 5th Annual Home Slice Carnival O’ Pizza with the same familiar hunger I’ve had for the past four years, but that’s not all I’m bringing to the table.  I’m also bringing a refined eating technique that I’ve been working on, and I’m planning on eating more than ever on November 20th.  Anyone out there who wants a shot at the crown better come strong, and they better be ready for a battle.”

Occupation? RN.
5 items he can’t live without? Books, music, dancing, friction (our family’s euphemism for sex), pizza.
What two animals would he breed to make a  hybrid? Mongoose and cobra – because if arch enemies can peacefully co-exist we may find that we can all live in peace…or we may find that this co-existence is impossible, that peace is futile, and end the misery early by eating each other.
What else? I homebrew my own beer and soda. i am a birder – AKA: Bird-Nerd. I used to write/ direct/ produce a sketch comedy show on public access called “Free Beer”. My degree is in film but, like most artists, I needed a day job – so I’m a night nurse.

Ryan Bolles

Craziest dare you’ve done? My wife and I celebrated our fifth anniversary this year. We were married by Sun Myung Moon in a mass wedding at old Yankee Stadium. Both of us thought, independently, that it would be an ironic hoot to do this, as we had never met before. More ironically, we are both quite happy with the match.

Occupation? Stuntman.
5 items he can’t live without? My kitty cat, my drinking helmet, mayonnaise, my Pable Cruise CD, my denim jacket with J-Low airbrushed on the back.
If there was one thing you could do immediately by giving up a pinky toe, what would it be? Get my dog to quit rubbing his butt on the carpet.
