Joey Chestnut lost in an eating contest, but at least it wasn't one for hot dogs. Instead, he lost a spicy chicken wings eating contest to Sonya Thomas, who is dwarfed by his size.
Sony Thomas Weighs Less Than Half Chestnut's Weight
Chestnut, who earlier this year won his fourth straight Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, fell short, 168 to 181 in the ninth annual National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, New York. Joey Chestnut stands 6'2" and weighs 230 pounds, while Sonya Thomas stands 5' tall and weighs in at 105 pounds.
In eating that many wings, Sonya Thomas herself four-peated, matching Chestnut's hot dog eating streak. She also set a new record. In terms of the weight of chicken they ate, Thomas ate 4.86 pounds of chicken, while Chestnut downed 4.55 pounds of chicken.
Thomas is 43, which means she should still be protected from heart disease by her hormones. That's a good thing, 181 fried chicken wings are not a good thing, nutritionally? CBS estimated that she downed about 4,583 calories, which is more than double the number of calories an average person needs in a single day (without counting the sauce).
In addition, a further breakdown shows 198.7 grams of fat, 54 g of which is saturated far. That's also 1,824 mg of cholesterol. The American Heart Association recommends consumption of less than 300 mg of cholesterol daily.
Although both are pro eaters, Chestnut was favored to win. Thomas owns a number of other records, ranging from tater tots, asparagus, to pulled pork.
