Attention, universe! We come with stellar news: The White Hut World Cheeseburg Eating Championship At The Big E returns for 2017. This year's Championship promises to be the best yet, as MLE’s finest from near and far descend on the Big E festival in beautiful West Springfield, MA, for Cheeseburg after Cheeseburg. Aspiring contestants are heartily encouraged to sign up today.

For the uninitiated and the unaware, the White Hut Cheeseburg is native to West Springfield, MA, and stands as a true New England institution; in this regard it is right up there with living with high taxation and explaining to relatives in Florida that a true winter helps build moral character, not only bitterness and resentment. At last year's inaugural event, Matt Stonie set a World Record by eating 41 White Hut Cheeseburgs in 10 minutes, leaning his time spent enjoying Cheeseburgs in a civilian setting during a lifetime of family visits to New England. Second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti (38 at conclusion) and the top-ranked eater in New England, Geoffrey Esper, (35.5 at conclusion) pushed Stonie throughout the event.

Do you have what it takes to eclipse Stonie's 2016 haul? Do you wish to test yourself against the finest burger in all the land? Do you want to eat Cheeseburg upon Cheeseburg in exchange for a shot at money and international fame? Then sign up today! This is the White Hut World Cheeseburg Eating Championship At The Big E! At the table or in the crowd, don't you ever miss it!
