Interesting. Not too many variations from my list. I had Scullio a few spots higher. I also had Arturo Rios ranked at #10 which, in retrospect, was too high considering he's been MIA since July 4. What's up with him? Anyone know?

MEGA MUNCH - I don't know where Arturo was hiding, but he was in Vegas. He was probably just busy with work.

JEMMA - Hey! Good to hear from you. I was too afraid of getting mono, so I never did the slop tray. However, I did take Jeff and Grahm on in a chicken patty eating contest. I think Jeff was at least 2 or 3 times my size back then. Unfortunately the kitchen ran out of patties, so we never declared a winner.
