94 WIP’s Wing Bowl XX took place this morning and the world’s greatest eater Takeru Kobayashi set an astonishing new record by eating 337 wings to win the contest going away. After the event Kobayashi told Philly.com through his interpreter, “I could probably eat another 100 wings or so. Not really fast, I’d have to take my time. But if you brought me 100 more I could eat them.”
Jonathan “Super” Squibb finished in second with 271 wings. Bill “El Wingador” Simmons came in third place with 251 wings, and a woman challenger, Chilita came in fourth place by downing 238 wings.
Kobayashi won $20,000 from Stephen Singer Jewelers for the victory and “Super” Squibb won a Chevy Camaro from Frederick’s on the Boulevard dealership.
