When competitive eater Hayden ‘‘Hungry Haydo’’ Wilson steps up to the plate to eat five chicken parmas on Saturday night, he will be out to set an Australian record.
Haydo will tackle the 3.5kg five-stack parmageddon challenge at the Shamrock Hotel to raise money for prostate cancer.
The mammoth eating feat will not be tackled alone, with Echuca resident and Riverine Herald editor Zach Hope and four other competitors lining up for the challenge.
Previous attempts at completing the parmageddon dish have failed.
Shamrock Hotel publican David Cunningham said Australian officials will be on hand to crown a new Australian record holder.
In order to win the record, the entire plate — 1.25kg of chicken, 500g of cheese, 1kg of napoli sauce, 250g of ham, 100g of salad and 500g of chips — is measured to ensure all eaters have the same amount.
Eaters will also only be allowed to drink water while eating and must not leave the table.
Mr Cunningham is inviting people to come along and watch Haydo and other eaters in action to support a good cause.
‘‘We did not really intend this, but Hayden is raising money for prostate cancer,’’ he said.
‘‘So we will be rattling the tins on the night and encouraging plenty of people to come along and show their support.
‘‘The response has been overwhelming, there are plenty of people who have put their hand up to help out. We are looking forward to making this an annual event.’’
