a whole new era in eating

America, get excited. We have a new champion, a man who might be able to put the mustard-yellow belt back around a U.S. waist this July 4th.

Joey Chestnut ate 50 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes today. That’s only 3.5 off the world record, held by (previously believed to be completely unbeatable) Japan’s Takeru Kobayashi.

in competitive eating news

Eater X (known to mortals as Tim Janus) set a new world record this weekend in a grilled cheese sandwich eating contest. 31 sandwiches in 10 minutes. No word on how large these sandwiches were, or whether one was allowed to dip them in liquid.

Congrats Eater X, both for winning $1,000, and for besting the Black Widow, Sonya Thomas.
