How many bao can YOU chow? Wow Bao, the Asian fast-casual concept known for its Bao–steamed hot Asian buns, is hosting the exclusive National Bao Eating Championship, with the final round on Saturday, November 10 beginning at 2pm at the Water Tower Place (835 N Michigan Ave). WGN TV’s Morning News Host Ana Belaval will be the official emcee for the afternoon.

This annual bao eating contest begins with contestants power bao-ing their way through five days of cutthroat, semifinal rounds beginning on November 5. The top two contestants that eat the most bao in two minutes in each round then advance on. Those ten finalists will then compete for their chance to be crowned the Bao Champion. Winner of the contest will be offered free bao for an entire year.
