PHOTOS: Wing Bowl 2017

The 25th annual Wing Bowl descended upon The Wells Fargo Center this morning, with thousands in attendance. The annual all-you-can-eat wings contest was founded in 1993 by Philly talk radio hosts, Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti. Since the beginning, competitors from around the world were welcome to participate, but this year, only Pennsylvania residents were eligible.

The winner, Bob “Notorius B.O.B.” Shoudt downed 409 wings to win Wing Bowl 25. As his prize, he took home $10,000, a Hyundai Santa Fe, a Wing Bowl ring and a Harley Davidson.

Catherine Clee won Wingette of the Year, taking home $5,000.

Rumor has it this could be the last Wing Bowl but with such a great turnout every year, how could they not keep it going?
