Randy Santel 2017 Australia Tour

This article features the entire schedule for Randy Santel’s 2017 Australia Tour which he will continually update throughout the trip so that everyone can follow along and know when, where, and what time all of his upcoming food challenges are. Randy will also post the results after each food challenge he attempts throughout his journey via this schedule page as well. Randy Santel will head to Chicago, Illinois on Thursday May 25th and meet up with “Magic Mitch” Dombrowski to spend the weekend doing food challenges around the Chicago metropolitan area. They will then leave Chicago around dinner time on Tuesday May 30th and land in Sydney, Australia the morning of Thursday June 1st. Randy and Mitch will definitely visit the cities of Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Perth. They’ll also be visiting cities in New Zealand and Singapore before heading home in very early August.
