The contests for the Southern Thymes Pancake Challenge were confident, to the point they were cocky.

There was one problem. They had to eat all of the pounds of pancake within 90 minutes. It wasn’t a timed event.

Brian Morris, father of contestant Kevin, thought he would video his son and they would be off shortly and back home in time for dinner. Fifteen minutes into contest, Brian called home to say he would be late for dinner.

Two women, Wanda Phillips and Autumn, were still waiting on their pancakes 10 minutes after the men started. They would be allotted the same 90 minutes deadline.

The contestants were still eating as the veterans were lining up for their walk to the stage where the Marshall Tucker Band was to perform at 7:30.
