October 1st, 2012 by Kathleen McKeveny

Alex vs. Bread Pudding

Picture 1 of 1

Alex successfully defends her title at Hampdenfest 2012 by speed eating her way through an innocent piece of Cafe Hon’s amazing bread pudding, complete with caramel sauce and whipped cream. She toyed with the other competitors to make them feel like they had a chance and then crushed their hopes like they were little bugs. All hail Filiohno! And keep away when she’s hungry!
