SOURCES: Hero Sets Record By Eating 182 Slices Of Bacon In Five Minutes ? Consumerist

ORIGINAL SOURCE: Man eats 182 slices of bacon in one sitting

Published on Feb 23, 2015


Smithfield and I partnered up to help kick off the 2015 Racing season in a big way, by destroying any and all previous Bacon Eating Records in a 5 Minute All-You-Can-Eat exhibition!!

Along side to judge and support was The King of Nascar, Richard Petty, and Car No. 43 Driver Aric Almirola. This year is the first year Smithfield will be holding their Season-long Event, the Smithfield Pig-Out Chase, where Amateur Competitors get to compete for a spot in the November Finals, and this was the Inaugural event.


Hero Sets Record By Eating 182 Slices Of Bacon In Five Minutes By Mary Beth Quirk February 25, 2015

Listen, not everyone can throw arterial caution to the wind, so when someone does go above and beyond the usual bacon intake to prove themselves a hero in the pork-eating world, it must be noted. I salute you, guy who ate 182 slices of bacon in five minutes, because there is no way I will ever be you.
Of course, competitive eating is not for everyone, even those who really, really, really like eating delicious foods such as bacon.


But it was all in a day’s greasy work for competitive eating champion Matt “Megatoad” Stonie, who crammed a world record amount of bacon into his stomach in just five minutes during a contest sponsored by Smithfield Foods in Dayton, FL recently, reports WXIA.


The event kicked off the Smithfield Pig Out Chase, which is an amateur eating competition with various events leading up to an “ultimate eating showdown” that will take place in November at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The previous bacon record was set in 2010 with just 54 pieces of bacon in five minutes.


“I’m a huge bacon fan, so I jumped at the chance to team up with Smithfield to set the bacon-eating world record,” our brave hero says. “As one of the youngest competitive eaters on the circuit, I’m always looking to push myself so I aimed to eat 150 slices, but when I passed that and got to 182 slices, I knew it must be because I’m fueled by bacon!”


His stomach has been tested before and won accolades for making room for other foods, as well. According to Major League Eating, Megatoad is ranked second overall and has the record for eating the most gyros, birthday cake, frozen yogurt and pumpkin pie.

MY COMMENTARY: Invite Smithfield to SAND LAKE and let US have a BACON EATING CONTEST; the record above WILL BE SHATTERED!

TH alone could murder 200 pieces of bacon in 5 minutes
