Joey Chestnut Eats 121 Twinkies in 6 Minutes, Sets Guinness World Record (Video)

That's an average of 20 Twinkies per minute.

Competitive eater Joey Chestnut is putting your Twinkie-eating abilities to shame. Over the weekend, Chestnut downed 121 Twinkies in 6 minutes at The World Twinkie Eating Championship, which is a live event that people actually attended. (Side note: we’re going next year.) In doing so, Chestnut set a Guinness World Record for most Twinkies eaten in one minute, with a superhuman average of 20 Twinkies per minute. Chestnut’s mad eating skills knocked out the previous record of 14 Twinkies in one minute, set by Takeru Kobayashi last year.

Chestnut is not just a boss at eating spongy, processed desserts, he was also the champion of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest held earlier this year. Admire him and all his jaw-unhinging abilities in the full video above. But do save a little admiration for the blonde lady-contestant giving Chestnut a run for his money.
