Human eating machine, Takeru Kobayashi, will return to Tennessee to defend his title in a hamburger eating contest sponsored by fast-food chain Krystal Co., maker of some sort of small, square hamburgers which sound suspiciously like White Castle burgers.
Kobayashi will have to face Bay Area glutton, Joey Chestnut, a big name on the Competitive Eating circuit.
Of course if you're not into this sort of thing you probably haven't heard of either of them but just so you know, Kobayahsi is the shit-daddy of food slamming. Last year he guzzled 67 of these burgers to claim the title AND a check for $10,000. Not bad for eight minutes of work.
Kobayashi also holds the title of hot dog-eating champion, after eating 49 hot dogs in 12 minutes at the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest at Coney Island, New York. OK, like I totally plagiarized that entire sentence from this article.
Chestnut is no slouch when it comes to making a pig of himself. He holds the record for grilled-cheese sandwich shoving.
Should be quite a match up.
