As many of you know I am a BIG fan of Competitive Eating. I am a member of the IFOCE (International Federation of Competitve Eating).
This weekend was the World Krystal Burgers Eating Championship in Chattanooga. Takeru Kobayashi held the world record for eating 97 burgers in 8 minutes. Joey Chestnut came into the competition ranked #1 in the world with #2 ranked Patrick Bertoletti nipping at his heels. A couple weeks ago Patrick beat Joey in the World Buffalo Wing eating competition where he ate more than 4 pounds of Wings in 10 minutes. Sunday Joey Smashed Kobayashi's Krystal Record by downing 103 Burgers in 8 minutes.
Here is a picture of Patrick Bertoletti (#2), Me & Joey Chestnut(#1) from The World Rib Eating competition where I competed aginst them. I ate almost 2 pounds of rib meat in 12 minutes. Joey ate 7 pounds by the way, that's why he's #1.
At that same Rib eating competition Rich "the locust" Le Fevre (#8) broke his front tooth during the competition and swallowed it and kept going to eat over 5 pounds of meat. Here's a picture with Rich and me BEFORE he lost his front tooth.
Nice Smile Rich!
