☰ menu Your One-Stop Source For Eating Contests

Let’s be honest, we’ve all fantasized what it would be like if we entered an eating contest. I know I always imagine myself winning, and raising my food covered fist into the air in proud victory. Outside of fantasy, I don’t think I would want to cram my stomach full of hotdogs like Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, who hit a new record at Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island this past weekend. He managed to chow down 69 hotdogs and buns in 10 minutes!

If entering an eating contest interests you, is definitely where to start. Scrolling through their listings, you’ll find entry after entry of different eating contests occurring all over the world. Contests for every single kind of chicken wing, hot dog, fish ball, burger—even garlic eating contests! Coming up just this weekend is a Bun and Cheese Eating Contest featuring traditional Caribbean Easter buns! displays all the information in an organized format showing the date and cost of the contest, where it is held, and which food company is sponsoring the contest. The only flaw in this database of beauty is that it’s lacking in cheese related contests. As my fellow Berkeleyians would say, let’s protest!
