Dandee Donut competition

Dandee Donut lovers can binge on the jam-filled, sugar-coated treats for the chance to win $500.
Over five rounds, 25 competitors will devour as many donuts as they can in two minutes to a maximum of 10.
The top five contestants will compete in the final round to see how quickly they can eat 20 Dandee Donuts.
The winner will be crowned the ultimate Dandee Donut Champion and take home $500 and a trophy.
To be declared the winner, the contestant must swallow all of their donuts and show an empty mouth to the judges.
Anyone who vomits will be disqualified and must clean up after themselves.
