Moe Train Eats' host Monty "Moe Train" Wiradilaga defied all odds and finished in the Top 5 of the largest radio promotion in the world, Philadelphia's Sportsradio WIP's Wing Bowl 25. Wing Bowl is considered by many to be the Holy Grail of Competitive Eating events.
Moe Train started off strong eating around 115 wings, securing 8th place after the first round. During the second round, Train went absolutely wild finishing with 241 wings... Doubling totals after the second round is a feat almost unheard of in the gorgefest.
In the final two minutes, Moe Train dominated 42 wings, and ended up in 4th place. An unbelievable day."
Train said, "I can't begin to say how appreciative I am to everyone for their support during @sportsradio94wip Wing Bowl 25. The extreme outpouring of love and support from everyone: My entourage (Brian Kracyla, Ryan Gallagher, Raul Opio, Eric Durynski, Jeremy Clark, Chance Murter), friends and family, Anthony Covatta, Bryan Cole, MAKE Productions LLC, Yo SIGN Guy, Nickie Renee Castro (Makeup), 919 Klothing, Bog Turtle Brewery, Angelo Cataldi and The WIP Morning Show, Frank Pastella Jr (Frankie Floats), and everyone else... I've never seen such a positive response from a crowd at the Wells Fargo Center when we came out on our float. Tons of cheers, thumbs ups, smiles and hearing people scream "Moe Train, you can win this," "you've got this," and so many other positive things. It was surreal, and I used that energy to DESTROY my previous personal best of 180 by about 120 wings. After the first round, I felt great. I knew that I could eat a lot more in the second round... Didn't realize that I would eat 120 wings in the second! I was beyond pumped to get to the Final Table (Top 5) with the some of the world's best eaters - champion Bob Shoudt, U.S. MALE Dave Goldstein, Dave Brunelli, and my man Oink Oink John C. Bradley.
So for those who think that I'm just a show host and entertainer... YES, THE TRAIN CAN EAT!
Much love to everyone for an experience that Moe Train will never forget, and neither will the members of Team Domination. The smile on my face in this picture remains..." - Moe Train
