Competitive Eating A Year Ago

(from on 10/4/05)


Arkansas residents who are also fans of Pat from Moonachie could not ask for a better gift.

The rakish Man from Moonachie, a pizza- and hot dog-eating specialist, is on his way to Little Rock this week to compete in the October 8 grilled cheese eating contest at the Arkansas State Fair.

If Moonachie wins, he will earn a $1,000 first prize and the chance at a pool of $20,000 at the conclusion of’s 15-contest circuit.

The current world record belongs to Tim “Eater X” Janus, the No. 7-ranked eater in the world. Janus recently annihilated Sonya Thomas’ record of 25 grilled cheese sandwiches by consuming 31 grilled cheese sandwiches in 10 minutes at the Nebraska State Fair.

“The Little Rock region is an untapped resource of eating talent,” said George Shea, chairman of the IFOCE. “This event will not only serve as a platform to showcase Pat's talent and the heartfelt love the people of Little Rock feel for Pat, it may also reveal a new champion, the champion of tomorrow.”
