(EVENT) Celebs take on the first nationwide Jollibee Champ Eating Challenge

Some of the country’s most macho male celebrities joined the recently concluded Who’s the Champ? The Jollibee Champ Eating Challenge”, the nationwide search for the fastest Jollibee Champ eater.

The action-packed grand finals held recently at the TriNoma Activity Center in Quezon City was made more exciting by the Jollibee Champ celebrity challenge. Erik Tai of the Philippine Volcanoes, Itchyworms frontman Jugs Jugueta, and model-actor Jon Hall, who was also a challenger in the first Jollibee Drive-Thru Cross-Country Challenge, also attempted to bring down the big burger goodness of the Jollibee Champ.

In the end, rugby athlete Erik Tai went home with P10,000 cash and Jollibee gift certificates after winning the judges’ nod in the “cutest Champ eater” challenge.
