    I actually saw his performance in last year's contest. Truly phenomenal...a guy his size and weight wolfing down so much, so quickly, and so effortlessly. Really is freaky.

    50.5 hot dogs & buns in 12 minutes. It would take me a couple of months.

    This is a guess, but I don't think the hot dogs stayed in his stomach very long....or else he would have had an extremely big stomach ache. [​IMG]

    If you could get used to puking easily, then I guess this wouldn't be such a difficult thing...of course, you would need training...

    50.5 hot dogs? Man...looks like we have a new challenger for Glutton Bowl 2.

    Gee, and I thought the after taste after 1 hotdog was bad.

    I saw that footage on ESPN's Sport Center (they had a fun time peppering the show with updates from this "competition". The footage of the liquidfied bun shooting out of his nose was really gross (especially in slow motion). It's been suggested that this Kobiyashi dude has 2 stomachs. Either way, the guy is a freak in the way he can consume so much food in a short time period. And here I thought the "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" show wasn't premiering until next Wednesday.

    Actually, I think Kobayashi was in Glutton Bowl 1.

    This is a disgusting display of gluttony. ESPN is a joke for covering this as a "sport."

    Umm, Michael, if you saw their "coverage", they thought of it as anything but a "sport".

    Makes me sick just thinking about it. Oh and ESPN shows some of the national spelling bee also. That is hardly a sport, but they show it because it can be funny at times and they mix it in with the real sport reports.

    I watched a documentary about this type of food competition on the Discovery channel a few weeks ago. They had footage of this event and others. The contestants actually train for this as if it's a real sport. A doctor explained that they do have to condition their stomachs to be able to stretch enough to do accomodate the large amount of food they ingest. They also have to be able to swallow large pieces without chewing.

    Makes you wonder how much gets thrown back up after the competition.

    This reminds me of a friend of mine at work. He tells these stories about his College-Dorm-Years and that reminds me of one.

    At a restaurent/bar he used to go to, they had this "Spagetti Suicide Challenge" meal which is basically a wager/contest. The plate is like enough to feed 8-10 people and you have to eat the whole thing by yourself in 30 minutes and they give you your money back and put your name on a board for a drawing of a keg of beer. He was the only sub-200lb to ever win this thing (He weighted 120 back then) And he did this every week!

    He's also the only guy I know who could eat a Jumbo-Size Pizza all by himself!
