Jason ‘Crazy Legs’ Conti held onto his title yesterday at the National Sweet Corn Eating Championship held at West Palm Beach, Florida.
There was stiff competition at yesterday’s event, fresh from appearing at the chicken-wing eating qualifiers in Texas were Bob Shoudt and Erik Denmark, also competing was world’s number one female gurgitator Sonya ‘the Black Widow’ Thomas.
Crazy Legs managed to hold onto his crown with 44 ears of corn in ten minutes, but only by a narrow margin as Thomas finished just a half an ear of corn behind. Bob Shoudt who won the previous day’s chicken-wing event in Texas suffered an injury but still managed to finish third with 40.5 ears of corn. Shoudt’s eating technique proved dangerous when he manged to shear off the skin from the inside of his upper lip.
