The official Competitive Eating Contest thread
This thread will deal with all aspects of competitive eating contests held throughout the world. I'd like to start off by congratulating this skinny virgin dude(Jonathan Squibb) who won this year's Wing Bowl championship, which is held every year in Philly. It sells out more times than the Sixers do. This year's competitiion was only open to amateurs, and not professional eaters. Next year will mark the return of professional eaters being allowed back.
My next discussion soon will revolve around the world famous hot dog eating contest.
Let's get ready to rumble !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What eating events have you attended Check Two?
I haven't attended the famous Wing Bowl yet, but I should, since I'm close to Philly. Though, I have witnessed many 'non sanctioned' eating events by various fat chicks at the local buffets around my way.

---Japan's Kobayashi beats Chestnut in eating rematch, involving pizza:
CULVER CITY, Calif. – In a chewy chow-lenge, Takeru Kobayashi outlasted Joey Chestnut when the eating titans faced off to see who could devour the most pizzas.
Kobayashi, a six-time world hot dog eating champion from Japan, consumed 5 3/4 P'zones in a six-minute span of chaotic consumption Saturday to edge Chestnut. The 25-year-old from San Jose, Calif., wolfed down 5 1/2 P'zones on Stage 15 at Sony Studios.
"I'm a little bummed," Chestnut said. "There's nobody I like beating more than him, he pushes me harder than anybody."
The arch rivals are best known for their annual Fourth of July hot dog eating showdowns on New York's Coney Island. Chestnut has beaten his Japanese competitor the last two years, winning last year in a five-dog eat-off after they tied at 59 frankfurters in 10 minutes.
This time, they went cheek-to-jowl in a stomach-centric contest sponsored by Pizza Hut featuring the P'zone, a pizza weighing one pound with pepperoni and other ingredients sealed inside a crust. At nearly 12 inches long, it resembles a calzone.
Jaw strength and stomach capacity were sorely tested in consuming one of the most filling foods on the competitive eating circuit.
A serious-looking Chestnut prepped by opening his mouth wide and loosening his jaw. Kobayashi stretched his lean limbs and whispered with his interpreter.
Then it was time.
Chestnut took an early lead, squeezing a P'zone in his left fist while alternately slugging from a water bottle. Soon, liquid splashed all over Chestnut's white jersey and dripped from his mouth.
Kobayashi took a tidier approach.
He roared back to take the lead for good on his second P'zone, tearing off bites of the golden crust, then folding it over and sipping carefully from a series of white paper cups that he refilled with water.
"The crust was very chewy so my technique was to try to drink as much water as possible to soften up the crust in my mouth," Kobayashi said through his translator.
No dunking was allowed, and containers of marinara sauce accompanying each P'zone were tossed aside by both chowhounds.
A small crowd gathered a few feet from the elevated food fest cheered the men on, with Chestnut's highway patrolman brother yelling inches from his face to eat faster.
Chestnut couldn't keep up with his 31-year-old rival from Tokyo.
At the six-minute mark, Kobayashi raised his arms in triumph and lifted his red jersey to show off a set of washboard abs.
"It was tough. Kobayashi came to win," Chestnut said. "I was raised on pizza so it was natural for me to eat it, but I was a little slow to get going and he came out fast."
The thought of a Japanese outeating an American in a pizza contest wasn't lost on Kobayashi, who is recovering from TMJ, a painful jaw disorder.
"I love pizza," he said. "When I come to America, pizza is my happiness. I look forward to eating it."
Chestnut said he wasn't used to eating pizza that quickly.
"It's doughy," he said. "It takes a lot of chewing. He got off to a really good technique early on, his rhythm was drinking water and swallowing. I changed mine a couple times and never got in the right rhythm."
Kobayashi ended a three-event losing streak to Chestnut, a 25-year-old whose weekday job is in construction management.
"I wanted to prove that I'm champion," Kobayashi said. "A champion will stand up to any battle."
He said he would go for another Fourth of July hot dog championship and then probably retire. Chestnut will be ready and waiting on Coney Island.
"I'll see him in five weeks and I'm going to push him really hard there," he vowed.
Portions of the pizza event will air on the Spike TV "Guys' Choice" show on June 21.
PHILADELPHIA, Feb 5 (Reuters) – About 18,000 people turned out before dawn on Friday for the 18th Wing Bowl, an eating competition dubbed the world's biggest, and an annual celebration of Philadelphia's raucous sports-crazed culture.
Jonathan "Super Squibb" Squibb, a 24-year-old accountant from Berlin, New Jersey won the contest for the second consecutive year after eating 238 wings, just three short of the record, without vomiting.
He defeated nearly 30 other male finalists who competed in an indoor sports arena in a bid to eat the most chicken wings in two 14-minute rounds, capped by a two-minute "wing-off."
Each competitor was attended by a posse of wingettes, scantily clad young women who fetched the wings and mopped the brows of the contestants to the delight of the overwhelmingly male crowd.
Wingettes also competed with each other to attract roving jumbotron cameras by exposing various parts of their anatomy and encouraging the few female members of the audience to do the same.
"There's all sorts of wild behaviour that I can't describe because the law won't allow me to," said Angelo Cataldi, a host of WIP 610, the sports talk radio station that started the event 18 years ago as a consolation prize for fans of the Philadelphia Eagles football team when they failed to qualify for the Super Bowl.
Contestants also competed with each other for the largest bodies, the silliest aliases, and the most outlandish eating feats to qualify for the final.
Ryan Zarzycki, who is also known as The Polish Assassin, ate 12 perogies and eight inches of kielbasa sausage in three minutes, while Adam Taxin, a 205-pound (93 kilos) Philadelphian known as The Hungry, Hungry Hebrew, consumed 30 latkes in five minutes.
As the crowd roared, contestants entered the arena on homemade floats with an entourage of wingettes and people adorned in angel wings, tasseled bikinis, mardi gras masks and sequined gowns.
"This is our indoor mardi gras," said Bill "El Wingador" Simmons, a five-time winner. "It's the biggest eating event in the world."
Simmons, 48, said the overall standard of the competition has improved since his victories, with more people able to eat more wings.
"You have a better quality of eater," he said. "These young guys are putting it away."
But some could not take the frantic pace.
The Wing Bowl's best-known rule is: "You Heave, You Leave."
