World Eating Records

World Hotdog Eating Champion and great eater, Takeru Kobayashi.
Hotdog Eating Champion

The world's best hotdog eater has set a new record for chowing down on wieners and buns at the World Hotdog Eating Championships. Takeru Kobayashi ate 50 and a half hotdogs in 12 minutes to break his own record. He ate so fast that pieces of hotdog started coming out his nose! Takeru's amazing feat has inspired Kidzworld to ask, "What is the most impressive eating challenge?"

Takeru's Hotdogs
Takeru beat out several other much larger competitors to take the 2002 World Hotdog Eating Title. His nearest competitor was 400 pound, Eric "Badlands" Booker who ate 26 hotdogs. Takeru weighed just 113 pounds at the start of the contest and gained seven pounds in the 12 minutes it took him to cram the 50 weiners and buns into his stomach.

Who Loves Brains?
Takeru isn't just a master of eating hotdogs - he'd also like to eat cow brains. On February 12, 2002 Takeru wrote another chapter in the eating record books by slurping down 57 cow brains in 10 minutes. That's nearly 18 pounds of brain. For Takeru's sake, let's hope none of those bovines were of the mad cow variety.

Roaches on Fear Factor
On a recent episode of the television game show, Fear Factor, contestants had to eat live Madagascar roaches. These creatures are about two inches long with a hard shell that crunches when you bite into them. To win the $50,000 cash prize, contestants had to eat five of these babies in a row. Feel like throwing up yet? The world record for eating cockroaches was set by Ken Edwards who ate 24 roaches in 60 seconds.

What do you think is the most impressive eating challenge? All those hotdogs, all those brains or those nasty roaches? or vote in our poll above.
