2014-12-06: Congratulations to competitive cating great Joey "Jaws"
Chestnut on not only winning the Saint Elmo Shrimp Cocktail-Eating contest in Indianapolis, Indiana this afternoon, but
he eclipsed his own previous world record in the process with 10.42 lbs in 8 minutes! The man's talent is unbelievable!
I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. May we all enjoy and be very thankful for our food.
On this Veterans Day, I take a moment to thank all of our wonderful service members, past and present, who have sacrificed,
and continue to give their all, for our wonderful country. I'll always love my native land of South Korea so very much. Still,
the day I became an American citizen was a most happy one for me, because of them--they made that possible. God bless
our troops around the world for protecting our freedom. It is my honor, privilege, and duty to serve them. I
give them my best, every day, which is the very least I can do. I thank you ...
2014-10-25: I have always
loved competition, and in Fast Food, my day-to-day job, there's plenty of it. It's the same in Major League Eating.
That's why I love them both.
2014-10-09: I added a photo of some of my trophies earned over
the last 11 years, as a competitive eater -- see my FAQ page. Each year it gets more difficult to finish in the top three in any given competition, let alone win.
As long as I have fun and remain healthy, I'll continue to compete, but at fewer events.
