When Jamie Law opened his restaurant, Law & Orders, in February 2014, he set out a challenge that he knew would make his late dad proud: it’s the Rhippo Challenge and after almost 521 attempts, has had only 11 successful challengers.
The Rhippo Challenge includes two, one-pound Rhippo burgers and a full pound of poutine. The challenge? The challenge comes to those willing to test the depth of their hunger, who must consume all three items in 20 minutes or less. The successful few will earn bragging rights, get their meal for free, go home with a t-shirt and their photo will be hung on the Rhippo Challenge Wall of Fame.
Bobby Roy was the first person to complete the Rhippo Challenge in an impressive 13 minutes! It wasn’t long before Law & Orders attracted the attention of world class professional eater and body builder Randy Santel. While on his Eastern USA tour (that only included a few stops in Ontario), Randy stopped into Law & Orders and completed the Rhippo Challenge in an insane 7mins34secs. This was definitely a sight to see. His cameraman Magic Mitch decided to try, and also earned the rights to call himself a Rhippo Challenge Champion, completing the task in 15mins26secs.
Law & Orders is always looking for the next Rhippo Challenge Champion… who’s next?
