If you’re not familiar with Matt “MegaToad” Stonie, then you must not follow the strange world of Competitive Eating. You see, 23-year-old Stonie is pretty much at the top of the game right now. He won last year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, dethroning 8-time champion Joey Chestnut – and that’s just one of his many gluttonous achievements.
Like how about that time he ate 120 Twinkies in 6 minutes?
You can see Chestnut in this video, seated to the left of Stonie.
I wrote a story about a young lady from New Zealand who is both a model AND a competitive eater. She at one point ate 22 Big Macs in an hour after being inspired by Stonie.
Yeah, Stonie managed to down 25 Big Macs in 22 minutes – though it would have been 20 if he didn’t have to clean up all the extra lettuce.
There was that time he ate 60+ pizza rolls in a minute…
Last month, Stonie competed in a “Super Bowl” of his own… That is a super bowl of chili.
A week later, he destroyed “The Ultimate Nacho Platter.”
And now to his latest achievement…
Now I love me some tacos, and I can often polish away a few of ’em… But eating 12 in one sitting doesn’t really seem like the most appealing thing to me. Well, for Matt Stonie, it’s the only way to do it. Except not only does he do it one sitting… He does it in 80 seconds.
It’s not pretty, and it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense… But damn, competitive eating is fun to watch.
