Meet the contestants:
My name is Nicki Milks and this is why I think I will win:
"If there is one thing that I love more than eating donuts, it's helping animals in need! After transitioning into a vegetarian diet some time ago for both moral and health reasons, I am now working towards a fully vegan lifestyle. That includes only using cruelty free products and eliminating the use of leather etc. in my wardrobe and accessories. One thing I don't have to give up however, is donuts because of wonderful people like you! I've got this, not only for myself but most importantly for the animals in need at Refuge RR. Every creature deserves love in this world; not just the cute and cuddly ones."
"I have a lot of experience eating doughnuts. And I like to win. Game on!"
"This is my kind of contest!! Helping animals while enjoying one of my fav foods. I have been known to be able to out eat anyone who dares take me up on the challenge. Hopefully I can do it in record speeds as well!!!!! Can't wait!"
"I'm really glad to help the Refuge and I get to eat delicious donuts; what's not to love? Plus, I have been in 2 eating contests in the past and finished second both time, third time's the charm, right?"
"My name is Valérie and I think I will win because I am burning loads of calories breastfeeding a toddler. I am usually always hungry and ready to eat."
"Hi my Name is Rob Boisvert, I have been a Refuge RR team member over 2 and a half years. I am so proud to compete in this contest to help my fellow animal friends that call RR home. Oh yes I love donuts so bring it on."
"Donuuuuts! Veeeegan! Charrrrrity!"
"I'm a VEGAN warrior that never backs down, when it comes to helping animals there's nothing that can stop me! People are bringing their appetite, I'm bringing my heart."
