Joey Chestnut crowned 2013 Hooters' World Wing Eating Championship


Clearwater, Florida-- Joey "Jaws" Chestnut returned to Clearwater Thursday night to defend his title in the second annual Hooters World Wing-Eating Championship.

Hooters fans and customers alike cheered alongside Hooters girls as Chestnut raced 16 competitors, including Miki Sudo and Michelle Lesco. Both opponents out-ate him in a rib-eating contest in Chicago earlier this year.

Wings disappeared one by one, but Chestnut's rapid and ravenous pace could have convinced you otherwise. After 179 wings in the allotted 10 minutes, it's safe to say Chestnut devoured the title- no bones about it.

The crowning of the Wing-Eating World Champion is the grand finale of the five-city Hooters World Wing-Eating Tour that kicked off in March in Panama City, Fl.

A weekend-long celebration of Hooters' 30th anniversary lies ahead, leading up to a new challenge on National Chicken Wing Day- this coming Monday, July 29.
