Man Dies After Live Roach-eating Competition

MIAMI (AP) The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday.

About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python.

Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in front of the store, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office statement released Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy to determine a cause of death.

None of the other contestants became ill, the sheriff's office said.

There was no updated phone number listed for Archbold in West Palm Beach.

"We feel terribly awful," said store owner Ben Siegel, who added that Archbold did not appear to be sick before the contest. "He looked like he just wanted to show off and was very nice," Siegel said, adding that Archbold was "the life of the party."

Siegel said Archbold was selling the exotic prize to a friend who took him to the contest.

A statement from Siegel's attorney said all the participants signed waivers "accepting responsibility for their participation in this unique and unorthodox contest."

The bugs consumed were from an inventory of insects "that are safely and domestically raised in a controlled environment as food for reptiles."

A clear Darwin Award winner.
They should feed his corpse to the Python.

Floridian isn't a reptile should have been the headline.

The jury's still out on that one, I'm afraid.

The fact that they even held this contest in the first place is absolutely reproachful.

For one thing, something like a Cockroach, when eaten ALIVE, is going to try to get out of a confined region like a stomach, and Cockroaches are known for their filth. How much of a dumbass can you be?

I'm pretty sure they were allowed to chew the cockroaches.
