Joey Chestnut: World's Greatest Eater...
They'll probably never have competitive eating as an Olympic sport, but if they did, Joey Chestnut would walk away with a dozen gold medals easy!
The world competitive eating champ did it again on Saturday by downing 47 burritos in 10 minutes at the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque. That slams the previous record of 33 1/2. And these weren't light-weight burritos either. Each was stuffed with beef, beans and the state's famous green chile.
Earlier this year Joey, known as "Jaws," won the annual July Fourth hot dog eating contest at New York's Coney Island for the fourth year in a row. He picks up $1,500 in prize money for his burrito win and undoubtedly had to stop later on for some Pepto Bismol.
