The first round will include two heats of 12 competitors to see who can consume the most uncut Tootsy Maki rolls (consisting of kani kama crab mix, shrimp, and cucumber) in three minutes. The top three competitors of each heat advance to the championship round.

PETA
Colleen from Cuyahoga Falls is one of the sexy vegan contestants.
We consistently have to give PETA credit for its brilliant marketing strategies.

To make their point, they'll use any trick in the advertising playbook -- including sex, sex, and more sex.

Take, for example, their Sexiest Vegan Next Door contest, which seeks out the hottest vegan with the best bod. And, as with every year, they're looking for entrants.

Passover Cooking Contest at Josef's Table

A flourless chocolate tarte - no chametz here! L'chaim!

The heart and soul of Jewish cooking is, as every child of Abraham knows, a mother's cooking. OK, technically, sometimes it's Grandma's cooking or an aunt's, but Jewish women are the ones who traditionally come together and prepare comforting food for high holidays or the weekly Sabbat.

Passover, or Pesach, is the feast of unleavened bread, and the highlight of this Jewish holiday is seder dinner, which takes place the first two nights. 

Nowadays, many people go out to nice restaurants that offer traditional seder menus, and Josef's Table in Boca Raton is one such restaurant. In addition, the restaurant is offering a little traditional home cooking in the form of a contest.

If you're wondering what to do this coming Saturday evening, but you've got no money after paying your bills, there are a few options.

You could dive for couch change and go out for a burger (fun factor about a five); you could go out to the Everglades and hunt pythons (fun factor about a zero) -- or you could take a friend to a swanky cocktail and food event for free (fun factor about a million).

Clean Plate Charlie has a pair of tickets to the JA World Uncorked event  to give away to a lucky reader (value $300).

The Melting Pot Invites You To Go Skinny Dipping With Pitbull

Go skinny dipping with Pitbull
The Melting Pot is the kind of restaurant that you normally think of when you're in an indulgent mood.

For starters, you receive a vat of bubbling molten cheese, served with chunks of bread to dip into the dairy lava pit. You then quickly move through dinner, which consists of proteins and veggies (not bad), so you can get to the chocolate fondue dessert. Not the best place for that diet resolution, right?

Well, yes it is, if you order from their new Skinny Dipping menu, which features a three course menu that comes in under 700 calories -- including chocolate fondue for dessert (though sacrifices have to be made by substituting a salad for the first course of liquid cheese). The price is $25 per person.

Judging people is cool.
We'll admit it. Being a judge at a food event is all kinds of wonderful.

You get to eat delicious food, drink heavenly libations -- and critique everything. That's right! You get to do what your mom, every one of your teachers, and the bible have told you not to do -- judge others!

Don't believe us? Experience the supreme joy for yourself.

Clean Plate Charlie is curating this year's JA World Uncorked event on Saturday, January 19 from 6:30 - 10 :30 p.m. at Junior Achievement World at Huizenga Center at Broward College (1130 Coconut Creek Boulevard, Coconut Creek) and we need another judge. That, dear reader, could be you.

McDonald's Launches Fish McBites Video Contest: Win $16,500

McDonald's
We dare you to listen to this jingle.
In an effort to lure consumers with even more ways to get obese, McDonald's is launching their Fish McBites. Basically, pieces of every Grandma's Mickey D's staple on acid, these are little nuggets of battered and deep fried Alaskan Pollock with lots of fattening tartar sauce to dip them into.

The nuggets, which had a limited test distribution, will be launched nationwide in early 2013. And McDonald's wants you to make the video. Just listen to this incredibly annoying song (which basically has some extremely autotuned voice singing "fishy fishy" over and over again to a beat)  and create a 30 second video to go with it.
