The Most Extreme Eating Contests In The Country

List Rules
Vote up the most insane eating contests.

There are people who dream about eating 82 slices of delicious pizza, and then there are people who go out there and make that dream come true. While eating 500 Peeps used to be a personal project, today it can earn you the title"Champion."

Not everyone is on board with the concept of eating contests and think they simply exemplified the gluttony of our country. But most people have a morbid fascination with seeing how much food humans can consume in an astonishingly short period of time, which is why millions of people watch the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Championship every July 4.

But hot dogs are one thing. Hot peppers? That's another. But that's what we're talking about today — weird eating contests — that aren't for the faint of heart or stomach.
