The Bruin held their version of the “Hunger Games”. Three food-based challenges were spread out across all four grades. The students involved in these challenges were Corbin Demiter, freshman; Mallory Roberts, sophomore; Ollie Smith, junior; and Sean Martinez, senior.
At the very end, the top two winners pied the two losers in the face with whipped cream. Check out the November printed issue of The Bruin for more pictures!

Challenge One: Blindfolded Taste Test

For the first challenge, there was a blindfolded taste test. Each student was brought into a room with a mask over their eyes at sat down at a table. They were given five foods to try; vienna sausages, manzanilla olives, freeze-dried mango, pomegranate seeds, and baby food.

Challenge Two: Guessing the Pop

The second challenge consisted of drinking four kinds of pop and guessing what kind it was, however, they were not allowed to see the pop can. Each can was hidden inside a cardboard box with numbers on the top of the box labeling the pops “one through four”. The pops used were Coke, Diet Coke, Pepsi, and Diet Pepsi.

Challenge Three: Meatball Toss

For the final challenge, there was a meatball toss, with two rounds. The challenge consisted of the upperclassmen pairing up and the youngerclassmen pairing up. There was one thrower and one catcher. For the first round, five meatballs were thrown to the catcher. Then the students switched and the original catcher was now the tosser. After both students had a turn to catch and to throw the second round began.
At the end of all of the challenges, there was a tie between Martinez and Demiter. In order to break the tie, the two had a fourth challenge. In this challenge, they were both given a spoon to hold in their mouth with a meatball on top and raced down the hallway. Although it was a close race Martinez beat Demiter by just a second.

The Final Scores:

Sean: 31/53   Ollie: 41/53   Mallory: 16/53   Corbin: 30/53
