10 Of The Strangest Eating Contests From Across The World

Jalapeno Eating Contest

Jalapeno’s are not a food that anyone typically wants to eat in large quantities, because they are super spicy. However, in Texas, they have this contest every year and many people take part. Currently, the world record is held by a 62-year-old retired accountant from Nevada, who swallowed 247 peppers in 8 minutes.

Mayonnaise Eating Competition

This contest, a part of the Glutton Bowl, is particularly unhealthy. The current record holder, Oleg Zhornitskiy, ate 4 bowls of mayo which is equivalent to 8 pounds (or 3.6 kg) of this condiment in eight minutes.
