Cannot Be Unseen: A $70,000 Caviar Eating Contest In Moscow
A Moscow restaurant blew $70,000 on a caviar eating contest. The winner, 49-year-old businessman Alexander Valov, manged to bolt down more than a pound of caviar (500 grams) faster than any of his competitors. How long did he take? Only one minute and 26 seconds.
His reward? Another 500 grams of caviar, 10,000 rubles ($340) and the knowledge that he sucked down a small bucket of fish eggs.
