Joey Chestnut

Since I am bored, have no life, and love to eat, I have decided to start a new segment at We Got the Goodz. It’s called “Eater of the Week”. I am going to give you info on a person who eats for a living, and you are going to read it because you have a lot of time to waste.

 

On November 25, 1983, a baby was born. Well actually, a lot of babies were born, but one would live on to become an American hero. That baby was Joseph Christian Chestnut, known today as 'Jaws'. This is a picture of him and his father.

His love for eating was evident at a young age. He would often challenge his preschool classmates to applesauce eating contests.

In middle school Chestnut won the talent show. He ate. A lot. No one is really sure why he chose to wear a dress.

In high school he was voted prom king by his fellow classmates. I really can't think of a funny caption for this one. I think the picture is enough.

He graduated from San Jose University in 05. His family was there to supprt him at his graduation.

After graduation, he moved onto his professional eating career.

In 2005, Chestnut won Major League Eating's rookie of the year award. He had a breakthough performance in the deep-fried asparagus eating championship that year. He also came in second in the famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.

In 2008, he beat Kobayashi again to solidify himself as the greatest hot dog eater in the world. It wasn't hard, because his competitor didn't have a chin.
