Competitive eater Patrick Bertoletti is one of the contestants participating in the St. Patricks Day Chowdown, which has hearty eaters chowing down on green doughnuts, jalapenos and corned beef and cabbage.
In real life, the 21-year-old enjoys a pint of beer with his Irish meals and laments that the contests strict no alcohol rule means hell have to settle with swigging water between courses.
However, that doesnt mean he doesnt plan to enjoy a glass of Guinness after the competition.
Says Bertoletti: I will definitely be partaking in a St. Patricks Day beer later that night.
Bertoletti says competitive eating has helped him with his competitive drinking, but admits hes never tried to drink a thirty pack of beer in one sitting.
As he puts it, Im 21 now so Ive kind of settled down in the drinking department.
The St. Patricks Day Chowdown airs Saturday (Mar. 17) on Spike TV.
