Professional eater Joey Chestnut takes home Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship

National

It’s definitely no hot dog eating contest.

Professional eater Joey Chestnut competed in the Saint Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship in Indianapolis.

Chestnut chomped down a little more than 18 pounds of shrimp cocktail in only eight minutes.

“Dude, I knew the guy next to me was eating like a madman and the crowd pushing me, I couldn’t get lazy,” said Chestnut.

That crushed his previous record of 15 pounds back in 2015.
