      Contestants at Mad Dog eating challenge don't go away hungry

      LEWISTON, ID - The bibs were on Wednesday evening as a group of ten contenders competed against one another in the Mad Dog challenge.

      Each contestant, along with his or her partner, was to finish a seven and a half pound burger and two pounds of fries within 40 minutes. The menu item, known as the bodacious burger rings in at $50.

      "I don't think anyone's going to make it to be honest with you," said Mad Dog owner Jay Madson. "It's going to be a lot of fun to watch."

      "I'm feeling miserable, but it was worth it," Mad Dog winner Eric Keeling. "I had not doubt in my mind that I wouldn't win tonight. We've been doing this a long time."

      Keeling and his partner Brad Payne finished the bodacious burger and fries in just shy of 40 minutes. No other contestants finished the challenge within that time.
