• Check Out How Much Turkey Joey Chestnut Gobbled Down This Weekend

    If you thought Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest was gross, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    On Saturday, The World Turkey-Eating Championship got an early start to the Thanksgiving festivities. World famous “competitive eater” Joey Chestnut downed 9.35 pounds of turkey, which was enough to set a brand new world record. For his reward, Joey pocketed $5,000. Imagine how many practice turkeys he could buy with that.

    Gobble Gobble! Check out some of the footage above.
