Melon munchers wanted for eating contest

At this year’s Kununurra Ag Show, fruit lovers will have a chance to win cash in a new watermelon eating contest. Ceres Farm is donating the melons, which will be used in the novelty event, starting from 5pm this Friday.

Entrants can take part in one of four age groups. The winner of the six-and-under category will get $20, ages 7-11 wins $50, 12-17 gets a cool $100 and the open event will net the best watermelon eater $200.

Competitors will be given a slice of watermelon and the first person to finish eating it, or whoever eats the most in two minutes, will be the winner. But there is a catch: no hands allowed. Entrants have to attack the melons with their mouth.

Ceres Farm owner Matt Gray said the family business was keen to contribute to the Ag Show and thought a melon eating contest would add to the event — one of several novelty items to be held on Friday and Saturday.
