HERE ARE OUR CELEBRITY PARTICIPANTS:
1) KETTERING POLICE OFFICER MARK “THE ITALIAN STALLION” STEFFANO !
Used to keeping law and order, can one of Kettering’s finest “cuff” and tame the 16 inch Super Duper Cheesesteak? Remember that means triple the cheese and triple the meat! Can this Paisan meet the challenge? Pride is on the line!
2) THE REAL SANTA – MARK “THE BEARD” DAGROSSA:
The one and only real Santa in town, Mark is also a fixture at the Sons of Italy, and Italian Fall Festa handling cannoli. He looks to handle the Super Duper Cheesesteak in under 16 minutes. Also known for his work on the Gem City Podcast, Mark “The Beard” DaGrossa will be looking to beat the bun this year! We are grateful for his participation.
3) SENIOR CENTERVILLE FOOTBALL PLAYER, DECLAN “THE HUNGRY ELK” MASON:
Used to tackling dummies, can this player tackle a Super Duper Cheesesteak ? Can this 18 year old stud intercept the 16 inches of heaven and beat the challenge? The entire team should be there to support this Hungry Elk as we hand off of a sandwich with the works and triple the meat and cheese.
4) SONS OF ITALY “GARLIC CHAMP,” KEVIN SORICE:
Used to eating garlic, organizing bocce ball and running the beer trucks at the Sons of Italy Fall Festa, Kevin is no stranger to the challenge. He looks to improve his time in the “Senior division” of the competition. A former college football player, he looks to size up the 16 inch sub. Bad news for Kevin, there is no garlic on this cheesesteak.
5) XENIA GAZETTE SPORTS and NEWS JOURNALIST, SCOTT HALASZ:
Local sports guru Scott Halasz steps up to the challenge for charity and faces his first Super Duper Cheesesteak. Can this journalist make headlines by beating the 16 inches with the works? Look for him to have a secret strategy that may push him past the time limit with ease! We wish him luck and are excited to have him for this event.
6) GEM CITY ROLLER GIRL “ARCHANGEL ANARCHY”:
We expect elbows to be flying as this Gem City Roller Derby star attacks a Super Duper Cheesesteak. The only question is will she be wearing roller skates during the challenge? She has 16 minutes to beat the challege and the sandwich with the works. Used to speed and tough checks, this challenge is custom made for a hungry roller girl who is used to sandwiching her
competition to the floor.
7) FORMER SUPER DUPER CHEESESTEAK CHAMP, STEVE HOWARD:
We have a ringer. Stepping out of retirement, former 2012 Super Duper Cheesesteak champ Steve Howard is hungry for more. Does he still have what is takes to beat the challenge and get on the leaderboard for the store? We look for a good time and he is the man to beat. Watching this guy mow through a 16 inch cheesesteak is worth the price of admission alone.
8) GEM CITY PODCAST STAR, TERRY “IZZY ROCK” MARTIN:
The man behind the Gem City Podcasts steps into the Cheesesteak arena to help the Pink Ribbon Girls. Trading in his microphones and headset for a 16 inch sub with the works, can he beat the challenge? Or will the Super Duper sub make Izzy, too dizzy? We have a feeling he may we the wildcard in this competition and could come in with an impressive time. Come watch for yourself and see if Terry can do it !
9) DAYTON CHROME DIVA BIKERS CLUB REPRESENTATIVE “GOOD GUY” CHRIS GOODE:
Loud motorcycles and long highways are a way of life, but can this open road friend of the Divas beat the open faced Super Duper Cheesesteak? Watch as this Chris steps up to the table for charity again. Gripping the sub like handlebars, we expect him to put the pedal to the metal and put a hurting on this sub. This will be his 2nd time at the competition and his first time he nearly came in first place. If he comes in hungry, look or him to be a dangerous competitor.
10) NICK TARKANY SR. OWNER and BREWER at HEAVIER THAN AIR BREWING CO.:
Nick is a big time aviation buff and expects to fly high in the cheesesteak challenge. Will he be able to land this sub with triple the meat, triple the cheese and the “Works” toppings which include mushrooms, onions, mayo, lettuce, tomato and hot relish? We are grateful to have this local brewery owner and brewmaster, who makes incredible beer, as part of the fun.
11) DUSTIN STANLEY “DISTRIBUTION KING of WARPED WING“:
We will see if the transition from beer to cheesesteaks is a natural one as Warped Wing’s distribution king, puts his crown on the line. Can Dustin beat the clock and make Ermal proud, or will the sub feel like ten tons of stout? We are very excited to have him in the competition and look for him to possibly be a dark horse in the race. Will he be able to can the competition? Come watch and help us raise money for Pink Ribbon Girls.
12) RYAN ROTH, LOCAL ELVIS TRIBUTE ARTIST and VOTED DAYTON’s #1 MALE VOCALIST:
It’s one for the money, two for the show, 3 to ready now go Ryan go ! We ready for him to rock this event ! Will he be able to beat the King of cheesesteak challenges?
