PORTLAND, Ore. (UPI) -- Champion eater Joey "Jaws" Chestnut ate up the competition at the annual Bite of Oregon, scarfing 32 slices of pizza in 7 minutes.
Chestnut, 26, is considered the world's best speed eater, and his opponents were mere amateurs, The (Portland) Oregonian reported Sunday.
Chestnut's five opponents ate just 30 slices between them, although one competitor didn't get credit for one slice because he didn't eat the crust.
"I'm not a crust guy," Andy Hryciw told the newspaper. Not that it mattered.
Chestnut, of San Jose, Calif., won the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog-Eating Contest in New York for the fourth year in a row this year, and has been a competitive eater for a little more than five years.
"It worked out perfectly because I love competition and I love to eat," Chestnut said. "It (he and competitive eating) was a match made in heaven. As long as I'm healthy and having fun, I'm going to do it."
Despite his power-eating practices, Chestnut works out to remain fit and healthy, and is not overweight, The Oregonian said.
