The contestants were Philip Young of West Caldwell, firefighter, Darren Sinclair of Caldwell, firefighter, Jarred Carlucci of Cedar Grove, firefighter, Mike Kraynanski of Caldwell Police, John Intili of North Caldwell, firefighter, John Kauffman of Essex Fells, firefighter, and Captain Don Jervis, Senior, of the Bloomfield Fire Department.

When the five minutes were up and the trays were re-weighed, the lone officer—Mike Kraynanski—was proclaimed the winner having consumed 1.9 lbs. of ribs.
