Our favorite challenge, the fantasy football loser challenge. One group made the loser of this fantasy football season eat 18 waffles as their punishment. However, the real winner was the Waffle House server, who received a $1,000 tip.
We have heard of groups making their friends take the ACT or holding a sign at the corner of an intersection, but this one takes the cake… or waffle.
Michael Carsley, 32, was the loser of his friend group’s fantasy football league this season. His punishment was that he had to spend 24 hours in a Waffle House eating waffles. For each waffle devoured, Carsley knocked an hour off his stay time.
Is this a punishment or a dream come true?
Carsley admitted he struggled as he live-streamed his Waffle House experience.
“Much bigger than I thought in my head. The first seven really took me down hard,” Carsley said. “I’m sure you guys have better stuff to do than watch me shove waffles in my mouth. But, thanks.”
Little to the Waffle House server’s knowledge, Carsley was hosting a fundraiser on the live-stream to repay her. Seven waffles is a lot for one person, therefore a sizable tip was in order.
Waffle House Challenge
It took Michael Carsley five hours to eat 18 waffles. According to WSB-TV Atlanta, that totals 5,652 calories of waffles, not including the necessities like butter and syrup.
The final bill came out to $49, but with the donations from the event, he raised $1,040 for his server, who was thrilled with the generous tip.
“Oh, my God! Really? Oh, thank you very much! Oh my God!” the server exclaimed.
Carsley said that while it was horrible to eat all the waffles, the look on his server’s face made his day.
“All around, it was a spectacular thing. The punishment itself was torture, but the outcome of everything was well worth it,” Carsley said.
It’s not a Waffle House. It’s a Waffle Home.
