Usually when someone gives me free food, I’m all over it. But I guess these three participates of a Japanese variety show didn’t get the memo. However, I can’t fault them as they have the unenviable task of eating a mountain of shrimp tempura + rice that weights 11 lbs(5 kg) and stands 1.5 feet(41 cm). Why would anyone do this you ask? Look, its a Japanese variety television show, it is not suppose to make sense.

At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself, are there really any winners here?
