After a year and a half, we've reached our final episode of Weatherman Versus Food.
And tonight, we go out with a brat- or rather, a whole bunch of them.
It's the Swiss Days Brat Eating Contest in Berne.
And it's tonight's Weatherman Versus Food.
Neuenschwanders has sold brats in Berne for years.
But this year at Swiss Days, a first- a Bratwurst Eating Contest.
The winner wins a trophy, a box of the region's finest brats, and a t-shirt.
These ten have fifteen minutes to see who can stuff the most sausage into their mouths.
"Obviously, requirement is you've got to keep it down, you've got to eat the whole brat, and when time is up, whatever's in the mouth counts. But you have to swallow. So any throw up or any of that sort automatically disqualifies you, dunking of the bun counts, and everything like that,” says Berne Meat Locker co-owner Aaron Givens.
The crowd is ready- and out they come.
And the ten challengers are ready for the sausage fest.
Quickly, wiener after wiener goes down.
"He's got three!"
"Three! Now we've got four!"
These men can down the meat.
"Six! Right here!"
"He's got six down!"
It becomes a battle between two eaters.
And soon- just a battle of one.
Seven brats all the way down- and we have our first-ever brat champion!
"And our champion, Tyler Roach, with seven!"
Thank you all for being a part of this over the past year and a half.
It really has been a mouthful.
Today we're all champions.
