SHARE Joey Chestnut eats 45 slices of pizza in 10 minutes

Competitive eater and real American hero Joey Chesnut performed another feat of eat yesterday when he downed 45 pieces of pizza in 10 minutes.

This gives Chestnut a sort of junk food Triple Crown.

The 24-year-old rocketed to competitive-eating celebrity when he won Coney Island’s July Fourth hot-dog eating contest in 2007. He took the title again this summer by gulping down 59 dogs in 10 minutes. He won a contest in Tennessee last month by wolfing down 93 Krystal hamburgers in 8 minutes.

Mmmmmmm, records.
