One of the world's greatest eating contest champions came up short in Wisconsin this weekend. Joey Chestnut, who is currently ranked first in the world by Major League Eating, competed in the Wisconsin State Fair cheese curd eating contest – and lost.
In fact, he came in third behind Gideon Oji and first-place winner Darron Breeden. Breeden gobbled five-pounds, two-ounces of cheese curds in six minutes. Guessing Breeden’s not feeling too poorly this morning – the prize was four-thousand-dollars.
