Food Network Champs

We Blew Our Prize Money

on PING PONG!

11/21/2011 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel Shemtob and Jason Quinn playing Ping Pong
The winners of "The Great Food Truck Race" on Food Network could have spent their 100k prize money on anything -- but they REALLY like ping pong.

23-year old Daniel Shemtob and 25-year old Jason Quinn -- two of the guys who run a gourmet roach coach called The Lime Truck -- sprung for a top of the line ping pong table to go in their house as soon as they won the competition. 

We're told the table tennis games have consumed their lives so much it's become the focal point of their free time ... and they even made their own paddles for good luck.

To the winners, go the spoils ...

Great investment. These guys could work on Wall Street. Especially like three years ago.

Useless article. The highest end ping pong tables cost under $3,000. They won $100,000. It's quite an exaggeration to say "we blew our prize money on ping pong". Also, doesn't seem like they take it too seriously if they're using paddles they made and playing right next to a shelf full of liquor bottles.

yeah, how can you even use the term "blew" when they probably only spent a fraction of it on ping pong stuff?

TMZ, you really should do something to get this spam under control. Ugh. As for the story, find it very hard to believe. No way any table costs that much. Track down a receipt! lol Really, where did they spend the other 90K?

Hilarious. Could have had me fooled since I'm pretty sure Jason isn't an owner of the Lime Truck any more, and has no free time since he's devoting pretty much all of it to opening his new restaurant.
