Danielle Wagner wins cupcake eating contest over Justin Roberts

Posted:

Congratulations to our own Danielle Wagner for winning a cupcake-eating contest Saturday.

Danielle competed against Justin Roberts of KGAN.  The winner got $100 per cupcake for his or her favorite charity.  Danielle ate five cupcakes to Justin's four. $500 is going to the Cedar Bend Humane Society in Waterloo.

But Justin didn't walk away empty handed, the Isle also made a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Danielle says eating the cupcakes is a lot harder than it looks, but the experts made it look easy. 

After Danielle and Justin competed, the professionals showed them how it's done.  The nine competitors chowed down for eight minutes at the Isle Casino Hotel.

The winner was Tim "Eater X" Janus of New York, eating an incredible 42 cupcakes! Congratulations to Aaron "A-Train" Osthoff from Dubuque.  He took third place.

The top five finishers split $5,000 in prize money.
