Emily Wilson set a new world record by consuming 1.2 pounds of food
using chopsticks in a mere 13 minutes.
Wilson ate the food on Thanksgiving Day 2008. To accurately gauge the
amount of food, she weighed her plate both before (1.6 pounds) and after
(2.8 pounds) putting food on it. The meal consisted of traditional
Thanksgiving fare: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, peas, and a roll.
Dana Johnson was present to witness the feat.
NOTE: Stuffing food in your mouth can be dangerous. Please use caution
and have adult supervision on hand.
Competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi ate 25 Peeps in 30 seconds. He crushed his opponent Gavon Laessig, who only managed to eat four. The competition took place at BuzzFeed HQ in New York City, and was adjudicated by RecordSetter officials Corey Henderson and Emily Miethner.
NOTE: Competitive eating is dangerous and should not be attempted unless you are professionally trained.
