In a head-to-head matchup of consuming ten pounds of baked beans, Chestnut defeated Nick Wehry and will face off against the #1 overall seed, Gideon Oji in the finals. Oji advanced by defeating Darron Breeden.
Oji advanced by consuming the allotted ten pounds of baked beans in an astonishing one minute and 45 seconds. Ten pounds of baked beans in 01:45.

Chestnut had an equally impressive win as well — nearly lapping his opponent Nick Wehry. Almost finishing his second and final bowl of baked beans before Wehry finished his first. Chestnut nearly broke two minutes, as Oji, but left one more bean in the bowl before finishing and coming in at 2:03.
Chestnut and Oji will meet tonight in the Finals, with the winner becoming the #BetOnlineEats Quarantine Challenge champion. The Final will consist of ramen noodles — 10 individual ramen noodles cups.
