Takeru Kobayashi rose to fame as the Nathan’s Famous hot dog eating champion from 2001 to 2006. He currently holds world eating records for bratwursts, cow brains, lobster rolls, and the unofficial hot dog eating record. On Thanksgiving Eve, Kobayashi will be putting on a live show from Turtle Bay, a bar in New York City, attempting to set a new world record in turkey consumption. As far as we can tell, the record was set on Tuesday by Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, who ate 5.25 pounds in 10 minutes.
Gather the family around the warm glow of the computer at 6:00 p.m. (Eastern), and watch the eating legend attempt to grab another in a long line of world records.
