Brave man went on a harrowing quest to become a Bloomin’ Onion mascot

Brave man went on a harrowing quest to become a Bloomin’ Onion mascot


Some people are just content to live. But some won’t others until they can wear a giant fried food costume at a football game.  

Every year on Jan. 1 Outback Steakhouse sponsors the Outback Bowl, a big college football game that also features a bizarre fried mascot: a Bloomin’ Onion, just like the one you can find on the steakhouse’s menu. 

Ryan Nanni, a contributor for SB Nation, announced at the beginning of this year that he was on a quest to don the fried onion costume for the big game. To underline this, his Twitter bio reads, “My only professional goal for 2017: to serve as the Blooming Onion at the next Outback Bowl.”

Ryan Nanni wasn’t kidding, earlier this year on Jan. 3 he tweeted the Outback Bowl account asking how to get the mascot job. And then he just kept doing it. 

He was persistent in his attempt to become the next fried onion mascot.

Yesterday, seeing that the game was less than a month away, he made an actual plea for the position announcing that he was going for a Hail Mary attempt at the mascot position. 

Eventually Outback Steakhouse responded with a simple demand, Ryan Nanni needed 10,000 retweets in order to get his shot as the fried onion mascot.

People were getting excited about his chances to become the Bloomin Onion. 

 

It took Ryan no time at all to beat the 10,000 retweets, and Outback admitted defeat.
