A year ago, eight contenders gathered at the Launch Pad in Huntington to compete for the inaugural Bagel Eating Champion title sponsored by Bagel Boss with a $500 cash prize.

This year, a slew of new competitors will join Keith Tuzzolino (last year’s winner who downed 5 bagels in 5 minutes) at one of two Bagel Boss locations: Hewlett or Hicksville.

Both events will be simulcast Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. on each venue’s Facebook page and on-site at each Bagel Boss space.

Former competitive eater Don Moses Lerman will serve as guest judge for the all-you-can-eat eight-minute competition (three minutes were added this year).

To participate or to purchase $10 tickets to the event, go to:

Bagel Boss, 1352 Peninsula Blvd., Hewlett; 516-259-2132

Bagel Boss, 432 S. Oyster Bay Rd., Hicksville; 516-681-1856
