Indiana—Video, Shrimp Eating Contest


In this nine-minute video, watch Joey Chestnut, a competitive eater, eat 9 1/4 pounds of spicy shrimp cocktail in eight minutes, easily beating five other contestants.  If it hadn't been for the fiery, horseradish-laden cocktail sauce, he might have broken the 10-pound mark.  No worries, though.  He still set a world record and won $1,000.  The previous record was 4 pounds and 15 ounces in 12 minutes.  Chestnut holds world records in hot dogs, Twinkies, hard-boiled eggs, ice cream and ribs, among plenty of other foods.
