Two beer-belly contestants share crown

LAKESIDE, Calif., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Two men -- one of whom said he plays Santa Claus every year -- were crowned Mr. Beer Belly 2011 in a California huge-gut contest, observers said.

Mike Perine, 65, of Lakeside, who plays the jolly red-suited fellow at Christmas time, and Dallas Glover, 30, of Santee, were the co-winners of Saturday's contest at the Eastbound Bar & Grill in Lakeside in San Diego County, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Approximately 100 people watched the hourlong event as the contestants -- six men and one woman -- strutted their stuff before three judges, the Union-Tribune reported.

Staci Colia, 24, of Lakeside got booted out early -- her tummy just wasn't all that big, the newspaper said.

"I'm a little bummed," Colia said.

Contestant Dan Deaton, 59, of Santee, said his motorcycle club cohorts call him "Bellyman Dan."

"I drink lots of beer -- Coor's Light," said hopeful Cody Alves, 22, of Lakeside.

Contestants were judged on "overall aesthetics, overall presentation and overall circumference."
