World hot-dog eating champ conquers pizza-eating record too!October 13th, 2008 - 1:57 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Oct 13 (ANI): Joey Chestnut, the world’’s hotdog eating champ, has set a new record of eating 45 pizza slices in 10 minutes.
Chestnut broke the previous record of eating 22 slices in 10 minutes, held by a Chicago chef Patrick Bertoletti.
He downed 45 slices in 10minutes at the Famous Famiglia pizza-eating contest in Times Square.
He folded the slices very quickly, and thrust them into his mouth.
He jumped around some, to help them go down the hatch, or knocked back water from paper cups. He never appeared to chew.
The slices were the typical cheese and tomato sauce variety, dished from a 16-inch pie carved into eight wedges.
Chestnut emerged victorious over 10 other contenders, including the previous recordholder Bertoletti, who ate 43 pizzas in the contest.
“It’’s as weird as it gets,” he said of competitive eating. “But it’’s fun. We make people smile,” the New York Daily News quoted Chestnut as saying.
“He is truly a god among eaters,” contestant Adam Gertler said of Chestnut.
“He could probably put an entire work boot in his mouth,” he added. (ANI)
