So speed eating is a race of who’s the fastest at getting fat.
It started out in county fairs before it gained popularity and it was centered on eating pies. Nowadays it’s almost like an olympic event with prizes – usually lots of cash. Because it might seem like a lot of fun eating food in large amounts but there are certain health risks that people don’t even consider before devouring those hamburgers. Caitlin nelson was a 20-year-old college student at sacred heart university in connecticut & she belonged to a sorority called kappa delta. She was one of the nice ones and she only participated in a kind pancake speed eating competition. Speed eating contests are most popular in Japan, canada & the United states. In austin, texas there’s also a vegan hot dog eating contest. There are judges that count the amount of food consumed by the contestants. They also make sure that the rules are respected. The menu for these competitions usually stands of a single type of food but that can vary from hot dogs to ribs and burgers. Contestants are allowed to dunk foods with doughy parts in to liquids so that it’s easier to swallow but if they throw up during the contest or right after they finished – it’s game over. Also if you leave too much debris on your plate or around you, that’ll be deducted from the final amount you had eaten. The chubby bunny challenge: It’s simple. you need to stuff marshmallows into your mouth until you’re no longer able to say “chubby bunny”. I went as far as 11. But poor 32-year-old janet rudd quit after 4 on a marshmallow stuffing contest at a fair in ontario, canada. As she was leaving the stage she collapsed. Speed eating can lead to obesity, increased cholesterol and blood pressure, it can mess with your stomach functions which can lead to nausea, vomiting, and indigestion. At some contests drinking large amount of water is allowed during the race, which can lead to water poisoning. Furthermore, if you have ulcer, don’t even consider trying yourself out because you can get stomach perforations. When worms and bugs are crawling on your plate. That’s a big fat no. Yet, people like Edward Archbold are not disgusted by anything. But this Edward guy he was a real one. He wanted to win the prize an Ivory Ball python for a friend on the midnight madness bug eating competition that was held by Ben siegel reptile store in derfield beach florida, in october 2012. I guess he didn’t mind if something went wrong as the world was ending on 12.12.12 anyway. Don’t tell him the truth, tho because he collapsed before he could claim his prize and died at the hospital. It caused asphyxia but an allergic reaction may have also been a factor. As crazy as it may sound, speed eaters actually train. They basically need to train two things. Their stomach elasticity and the strength of their jaws. So they drink lots of water during short period of time to stretch their stomachs and they chew gum to train their jaws. However the international federation of competitive eating doesn’t recommend training at all mainly without medical supervision. Walter eagle tail choked on a hot dog & an onsite medic performed cpr on him immediately. Normal CPR probably doesn’t work on someone who’s respiratory tracts are closed by hot dogs. In a case like that hey need to cut a hole on their throats here and place a tube in there so they can breath. We’re gonna finish up with one of if not the most popular eating competition around. It’s the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest which is held in the US every year on independence day. The location is in Brooklyn, New York in the original restaurant of Nathan’s famous corporation. It has played a huge role at popularizing eating contests and in recent years it has been aired on ESPN. As of the making of this video, the defending men’s champion is Joey Chestnut, who ate 71 hot dogs in 10 minutes during the 2019 event. How do you enjoy those hot dogs like that? He’s been the first since 2007 when he stopped Takeru Kobayashi at his 7th consecutive belt. These 2 are superstars in the speed eating world and Kobayashi is insane if you ask me. the guy destroyed the previous record in 2001 by eating twice as many hot dogs and he holds 15 guinness world records including among others, eating 93 hamburgers in 8 minutes, 62 slices of pizza in 12 minutes, 150 rice balls in 30 minutes and 13 grilled cheese sandwiches in 1 minute.
