Default Allure Hot Dog Eating Contest.

The Allure Hot Dog Shop could gain international attention if it had a Hot Dog Eating Contest like the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest held each July 4 at Nathan's Famous Corporation's original, and best-known restaurant at the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues in Coney Island, a neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. In 2011 over 40,000 spectators attended the event, and an additional 1.949 million viewers watched it live on ESPN television when Joey Chestnut ate 62 hot dogs and buns.
Of course the Allure could have it each week.

Over-eating hot dogs at sea would not be good.
Many amateurs would get sick and sue RCL.

Pretty sure every eating competition makes you sign a release.

Wouldn't need to be crazy, they could do fastest eating 3 hot dogs or something and just time everyone. $5 to play, fastest at the end of the week gets a prize paid by the sales. Free cruise or something. 1 win per person so the ringers can't win weekly lol.

I did see the competition on youtube, forgot about it until later in the night. Want to loose your appetite then see the video.

Yep, those are some valid points, don't think you'll see that contest on a ship...

No I don't think you will see it on a cruise ship either but if they did I would enter, not to win but just so I could have one or maybe two of those hot dogs. I've been to the hot dog shop on the Allure and those hot dogs are GOOD!!! I'd eat my one or two and call it a day.

Seadog2, I have sailed on the Allure and I loved those hot dogs and other sausages, but you don't have to enter a contest to eat as many as you want.

Manuel, No I guess you don't really have to enter but in the spirit of things I probably would just for laughs.

Actually, was on Allure during the 4th of July and they did do the first ever hot dog eating contest- had 3 passengers and 2 of the ship's chefs compete - the chef won.
