Competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi ate 7.5 pounds of turkey in 10
minutes, a new RecordSetter World Record. He set the record to raise
awareness and funds to combat hunger worldwide.
Kobayashi performed the feat on Thanksgiving Eve before a live audience
at Turtle Bay in New York City. RecordSetter Council president Dan
Rollman and senior official Rob Birdsong presided over the attempt.
Santa's Little Helpers Founder Karen Snowden, along with charity members and local businesses including Roses Restaurant, built an edible Christmas tree 59 centimeters high. They set the record on Christmas Day of 2012 to celebrate the coming together of the community in Cooma, New South Wales. Australian RecordSetter official Dave Thompson was present to adjudicate the attempt.
Kristian Foy gathered 15 people to pull apart one Christmas cracker.
Seven women held one end and eight men held the other. The women’s side
got the larger part of the cracker and therefore won the prize inside.
