While in Sochi, snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg took home gold at the slopestyle snowboarding event.
He was pretty excited.
We challenged him to the only Olympics that really matter.
Sage started first but overshot. Lucky for him Team BuzzFeed wasn't even close.
Second shot turned more into a roll. No go.
Third time was more successful for both teams, resulting in a 1-1 tie.
The next round was more successful for BuzzFeed than for Sage.
Sage's cookie looked good, but then fell off the edge of the table. :(
But both teams suffered in the tiebreaker.
The sudden death round was the most eventful of all the rounds.
And Team BuzzFeed won 4-3.
After the event we checked in with the athlete.
That was a really difficult competition. How are you feeling about how you did?
Sage Kotsenburg: I'm pretty bummed I came off the Olympics in snowboarding and FAILED in the Cookie Olympics, so it's kind of a bummer.
Have you ever tried anything this challenging?
SK: No, it's never been anything this challenging at all. It's a lot of hard work and it didn't pay off for me at all.
What do you have to say to your opponent?
SK: She's good. She's dangerous and I hope to see her back in four years. We'll have a big tournament.
The second event was an onion ring toss.
Toss the onion ring on the stick. It is one point for the first stick, three points for the second stick.
ALMOST Sage, but Team BuzzFeed won!
After another round of losses we made sure Sage was still doing OK.
So, you're 0-2. What're you going to do now?
SK: I'm feeling the pressure right now. I just gotta eat a big doughnut right now, really fast.
Have you done this before?
SK: I haven't done this before and I just ate a giant sandwich before so this should be really disgusting.
Do you have a strategy?
SK: I think I'll just gobble. Gobble as much as I can.
TEAMS, ARE YOU READY?!
Go! Go! Go!
And BuzzFeed goes in for the kill!
Uh oh, 0-3...
OK, you already ate a sandwich, and now you had to do that. How do you feel?
SK: That's the only reason why I lost, I just ate. I totally would have had it.
So you didn't prepare correctly?
SK: I think he's way more hydrated too.
How would you have done it differently if you were to do it again?
SK: I would have just gone all in. One bite and just probably would have been dry heaving after, but it would have been worth it.
Here is how it works:
The first round was Spicy Nacho Cheese.
Round 2: classic Nacho Cheese
Round 3: Baja Picante
Final round: Cool Ranch
Their guesses (after some adorable Lady and the Tramp action):
Sage won the Doritos event!
So, how are you feeling now?
SK: I'm feeling better about my life. I guessed Cool Ranch three times in a row and it finally worked out for me. Just process of elimination, ya know?
How do you feel about Doritos now? Is it going to change the way you see Doritos?
SK: I'm going to go home and buy every Doritos bag and just blind taste test in case this happens ever happens again.
What do you have to say to your BuzzFeed competitors now that they've beaten you?
SK: They had to have cheated. They cheated. On the first two. They cheated.
