Championship Round Video Clip Championship Round
Unbeknownst to the crowd… – Both the TU Wing King and Queen became sick after the competition – We experienced budgeting issues! WingStop overcharged us. Originally we were told wings would cost $50/100 wings. We were charged $62/100 wings. Lesson learned: ALWAYS have total costs in writing or recorded to avoid money situations!!!
