Randy Santel, a popular competitive eater from St. Louis who has visited all 50 states and 38 countries, settles in to take on a 100-oz. steak challnege at Doc's Bar in downtown Freeman Saturday night, Nov. 16. Santel has won over 800 food challenges since 2013 and is nearing 1 million subscribers on both YouTube and Facebook; he completed Saturday night's steak challenge — which included a pound of fries — in about 50 minutes and with 10 minutes to spare. A large crowd was on hand to cheer on Santel, many of whom follow him on social media and were eager for autographs and photo ops. Watch for more on this in the Nov. 21 issue of the Courier.
