Wing_Bowl_2012_eating_contest_Takeru_KobayashiTakeru Kobayashi weighs less than 130 pounds, but you don’t want to get behind him at an all-you-can-eat buffet. He proved that by easily winning Wing Bowl XX in Philadelphia after downing 337 chicken wings. Kobayashi shattered the previous record of 254 wings set by last year’s winner and this year’s runner-up Joey “Super” Squibb.

By the end of the second round of the Wing Bowl, Kobayashi has a lead of over 60 wings on Squibb. Kobayashi almost stumbled, despite having a huge lead. At one point early in the second round, Kobayashi nearly vomited. Wing Bowl rules dictate that “If you heave, you leave.” He was able to re-group and after a few taps to his throat, appeared to swallow what was trying to come up. He then flashed a smile and continued to power down more chicken wings.

Kobayashi is a competitive eater from Japan who holds records for chicken wings, hot dogs, meatballs, Twinkies, hamburgers and pasta. This guy eats everything and lots of it. I have no idea where he puts it all.
