Ernie Boch Jr Takes on WAAF Listeners In His First Ever Swim Challenge

June 21, 2019

Normally at the annual Bochkini contest, it's the ladies that get to compete. But this year, our pal Ernie Boch Jr. let the guys in on a separate ongoing contest: a swimming challenge.

In case you didn't know, Ernie used to be an elite swimmer as a younger man. So this year he opened the doors to listeners that believed they could go toe-to-toe with him in his owl pool, with the grand prize being $500 cash.

In the first two rounds, listeners raced each other to see who could complete a single lap to move on. But in the third round, we had a pair of brothers end in a photo finish that lead to some debate before we chose a winner.

Now it's the final round and Ernie had to take on the jacked Eddie from Needham, MA. Based on the replay, the duo appeared neck-to-neck in the first half. But Eddie managed to pull ahead in the final sprint, leaving him $500 richer.
