It's still undefeatable - a five-pound Jumboli Stromboli from Trimbo's Pizza in Butte.
It's been around for two years and no one has ever finished eating one, but three guys gave it a try Wednesday night.
Some of the rules of the Jumboli Stromboli are - one person must consume the entire stromboli in one hour and competitors are not allowed to leave the table, but they can get up and stretch. The stromboli contains ingredients like ricotta cheese, spinach, pepperoni and salami. It costs about $30, and if you finish it, you don't have to pay.
The three guys who tried on Wednesday night, Matt Esquibel, Calen Anderson and Ryan Christianson, gave it their best shot but still had to shell out $30 each after no one was able to finish. The competitor who came the closest to finishing his stromboli left a little less than two pounds of the dish.
Despite failing the challenge, they brought new strategies to the table.
Since they couldn't defeat the Jumboli Challenge the title of being the first to win it is still open to any takers.
