Watch Joey Chestnut Make 40 Bowls of Red Beans and Rice Disappear
If you enter a food eating contest and Joey Chestnut shows up, you might wanna sit back and relax. You're not going to beat him.
This guy holds the hot dog eating world record. He's also slayed the competition eating grilled cheese, twinkies, chicken wings and so much more. But that's not enough for this speed eater. Chestnut showed up in New Orleans for the red beans and rice competition.
Chestnut wolfed down 40 bowls at the Blue Runner World's Red Beans and Rice eating championship at the New Orleans Fair Grounds. He won $1,500 for his efforts.
Did you catch that? He ate 40 bowls in just 8 minutes.
What did he do to prepare? Chestnut says he had very little solid food for 2 days prior to the competition. He says he wanted to make sure his belly was empty.
While he was eating, Chestnut did not touch the provided water. But he did celebrate the win by washing down the food with a cold beer.
