My tasks were more exciting as an intern this game than they usually are. ISP Sports got Jimmy Johns sandwiches to do a promotion that ended up becoming an eating contest! It was a contest between three competitive eaters and three Jimmy Johns sandwich makers. The sandwich makers ended up winning since they made more sandwiches in 5 minutes than the competitive eaters could stuff down their gullets in 5 minutes. My task before the contest was to meet up with the competitive eaters and the Jimmy Johns PR girl. Seeing her work definitely made me more interested in PR, and I definitely want to try and get some sort of PR internship this summer in LA. But, the most fun part was that I got to hang out (a.k.a. make sure they don't run off anywhere) with Joey Chestnut, Eater-X (Tim), and Erik "The Red," all famous competitive eaters! They were so nice, and I have to admit, I was a little bit star-struck, but I definitely kept my composure. It was a pleasure "babysitting" them, and it definitely made my long day even better.
The whole ordeal totally reminded me of my Venezia's pizza challenge that I did with my friends over summer :)
