That, if my calculator is correct, comes to one cheese sandwich in slightly less than 13 seconds.

Did some Googling and found out there is a tour where people competetively eat not only grilled cheese sandwiches (which they apparently dip in water) and hot dogs, but many other foods.

Seems there is a hundred pound woman, a star on the circuit, who ate 44 Maine lobsters in 12 minutes. Don't ask me how they are supposed to do it, is the thing already shelled or what?

Anyway I think I have learned all I want to know about this subject.

Take care.

I have seen that small asian woman in action and she is amazing. But it makes you pretty sick to watch ....

You have to dip bread/buns in water or you can't swallow it. That's an old bar room trick (make a bet that someone can eat 2 pieces of white bread in a minute with no water .... it's hard to do!)

I find competitive eating to be obnoxious. I cannot consider it a sport or even watch it.

I have to say that I lean towards the same opinion too Andy, for many reasons. But to each their own, and in this case I'd venture to say their own stomach ache!
