  1. During Wing Bowl 25, which will be held at the Wells Fargo Center on February 3, 2017, there will be two (2) fourteen (14) minute periods, with a short break after each, followed by a final two (2) minute period and tie-breaking rounds, as necessary, during which Contestants will compete to eat as many chicken wings as possible.

  1. Prior to the start of the Wing Bowl 25 competition, Contestants will witness a demonstration of the minimum amount of meat that must be eaten on a wing in order for it to be counted in the final tally. Contestants who do not meet the minimum requirement will be given one warning, after which they will be penalized one (1) penalty point for each wing that is not properly and fully eaten. The Wing Bowl 25 Commissioner (an individual to be named by the WIP Morning Show in its sole discretion) will determine in his sole discretion the number of penalty points assessed.

 

  1. The Wing Bowl 25 competition will be split into two (2) fourteen (14) minute periods, with a short break after each, followed by a final two (2) minute period and two (2) minute tie-breaking rounds, as necessary. Contestants may not leave the immediate area during the breaks; however they may stand up, stretch, have a drink of water, and wipe their hands and faces.

 

  1. There will be twenty (20) wings on each plate. Wingettes will signal for a new plate when there are five (5) wings left on a Contestant’s plate and a new plate of wings will be brought immediately.

Upon completion of the first fourteen (14) minute period, the ten (10) Contestants who ate the most wings during the first fourteen (14) minute period will qualify for the second fourteen (14) minute period. (“Semi-Finalists”) If at the end of the first fourteen minute period there is more than one “Legends Contestants” remaining as qualified, then all such Legends Contestants will move on to the Semi Finalist round.  If at the end of the first fourteen minute period there is only one Legends Contestant remaining as qualified, that Legends Contestant will be declared the Legends Champion and will be eligible to win the Legends Champion Prize. If the Legends Champion then decides to take the Legends Champion Prize at this point, then he/she will be ineligible to move forward into the Semi Finalist Rounds and will be ineligible to compete for the Overall Champion prize.  If the Legends Champion decides to move forward into the Semi Finalist Round, he/she will be eligible to win both the Legends Champion Prize and the Overall Champion prize, however if the Legends Champion who moves forward into the Semi Finalist Round is subsequently disqualified in the Semi Finalist round for any reason (including vomiting), then such Contestant will forfeit any Legends Champion prize that he/she was eligible for prior to being disqualified.  All Contestants other than Semi-Finalists will be asked to leave the Wing Bowl 25 competition area and report to the “floor” area in front of the stage.  If there is a tie in the first fourteen (14) minute period, then all of the tied Contestants will all qualify for the second fourteen (14) minute period.  The amount of wings eaten during the first fourteen (14) minute period will count towards the final total of wings eaten.

If at the end of the Finalist Round there is more than one Legends Contestant remaining as qualified, then all such Legends Contestants will move on to the tie breaking round. If at the end of the Finalist round there is only one Legends Contestant remaining as qualified, that Legends Contestant will be declared the Legends Champion and will be eligible to win the Legends Champion Prize. If the Legends Champion then decides to take the Legends Champion Prize at this point, then he/she will be ineligible to move forward into the tie-breaking Round and will be ineligible to compete for the Overall Champion prize.  If the Legends Champion decides to move forward into the tie-breaking round, he/she will be eligible to win both the Legends Champion Prize and the Overall Champion prize, however if the Legends Champion who moves forward into the tie-breaking Round is subsequently disqualified in the tie-breaking round for any reason (including vomiting), then such Contestant will forfeit any Legends Champion prize that he/she was eligible for prior to being disqualified. All Contestants other than finalists will be asked to leave the Wing Bowl 25 competition area.

The amount of wings eaten during earlier periods will count towards the final total of wings eaten (i.e. the winning Contestant will be the Contestant who has successfully consumed the most chicken wings during the entire thirty (30) minute period) for each prize category.

 

  1. If a Legends Contestant, as defined above, consumes the most overall chicken wings, he or she will be deemed the “Overall Champion” and the “Legends Champion”, thus winning both prizes.
