This Newsroom Chili Cook-Off Feud Is One for the History Books

By

Maggie Vespa is a weekend news anchor for KGW-TV in Portland, Oregon. She first went viral earlier this year when she responded to a man who criticized her for wearing high-waisted pants on air...by wearing five different pairs of high-waisted pants on five different newscasts over one weekend.

Now, she's gaining attention for her hilarious Twitter thread about the newsroom's "annual(ish)" chili cook-off, which she has entered several times. It's a story for the ages. It will make you gasp, make you cry laughing, and also really make you want to try Trader Joe's canned chili. Just saying.
