WHAT THE PHO?
20 year old Sean Algar makes $3,000 in just under 3 minutes!!
The last time we had our Pho Challenge was back in 2019. This year, we saw eight fierce competitors in the Grand Final who were more than ready in conquering the 2.8kg Giant Bowl of Pho – consisting of 1,050ml of stock, 750g of noodles, 600g of beef, 360g of bean sprouts and 45g of greens.
Sean and seven other competitors from the Top 10 Challengers put on an electrifying show of courage and eating prowess at the Grand Final event on 5th September 2023.
Shaving off more than a minute off our 2019 winners time, Sean earnt himself a $3,000 travel voucher when he devoured the Giant Bowl of Pho in its entirety in yet another record-breaking time of 2 minutes and 40 seconds!
Sean and our MC for the night Dimsimlim made a special appearance on the Channel 9 Today Show the next morning, where they talk more about the epic food challenge.
