If you're a competitive eater, now's your chance to show just how fast you can down a platter of giant-size hamburgers. That's because Shamrock Burgers, one of the country's most popular hamburger chains, is calling all competitive eaters to join them for their first annual World Monster Sham Eating Contest.

Shamrock is actively seeking men and women to be participants in this mega-eating event, where contestants will be put to the test to see how many Monster Sham burgers they can eat in 10 minutes.

In case you're wondering if you can handle it or not, be warned that a Monster Sham is an original Shamrock Burgers creation that consists of two 10-ounce hamburger patties loaded with cheese and topped with all the trimmings. A meal in itself, the over-sized Monster Sham is a longtime customer favorite for loyal Shamrock patrons.

The festivities begin, first with the World Monster Sham Eating semi-finals, which will be held on Saturday, January 12th at 1 p.m. at the Shamrock Burgers location in Scarborough. On the same day, another round of semi-finals will take place at the Brooklin and Whitby Shamrock locations at 4.30 p.m. The three semi-finalists will win gift cards for free Shamrock burgers and be invited to face off in the grand finale, which will be held on Saturday, February 2nd at the Scarborough Shamrock location.

The winner of the World Monster Sham Eating contest will receive the first ever World Monster Sham Eating trophy, which they'll be invited to proudly hoist in the air. For the sake of posterity, the winner's name will be permanently engraved on the trophy. As an added bonus, the winner will also receive a $100 Shamrock gift card. For the semi-finalists, the prizes will be a $50 Shamrock gift card and a World Monster Sham Eating contest medal.

If you don't want to participate but you'd like to see this Sham Jam extravaganza, you're invited to come along as a spectator. We'll give you free fries and onion rings to munch on throughout the contest and you'll have the satisfaction of seeing culinary history being made right in front of your eyes.
