Living so close to Buffalo, NY, I grew up loving chicken wings and we have quite a few great places in Rochester to enjoy this culinary treat. I've cut down eating them, but still manage to get some every other month, often accompanied by an ice cold IPA. I can't imagine eating them non-stop for 12 hours. Well, Joey Chestnut and Hooters thinks it can be done!

To celebrate National Chicken Wing Day, on July 29th, Joey will devour wings from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the Hooters Mall of Georgia location. Hooters is giving someone a chance to win free Hooters wings for a year, if they correctly guess how many wings Joey will devour in that time period.

How is this even possible, without Chestnut going to the hospital afterwards? I realize his stomach must be extremely resilient, but c'mon, his stomach can hold only so much before bursting, lol. What's the most any of you have eaten in one sitting? The record is 501 wings in 30 minutes, done by competitive eater Molly Schuyler in 2018. She's skinny as hell too...WOW!


Gwinnett residents can visit the Hooters’ Mall of Georgia location next week and watch a Nathan’s hot dog eating champion eat as many chicken wings as he can in a 12-hour period. Joey Chestnut will test his wing-eating abilities at the restaurant, which is located at 1950 Mall of Georgia Blvd. in Buford, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday in honor of National Chicken Wing Day.

No offense intended to the OP, but these types of glutinous displays are shameful at best. If anything its a profound display of a lack of respect for life of all kinds. Its ridiculous in the light of millions who go without food each day.

Humans can be so foolish. I dont know who is worse, the idiot eating 1000 wings, or the people that find it entertaining.

This is why, as a population, we are in real trouble.

I dunno about Joey Chestnut, or eating chicken wings for 12 hours.

BUT...I do know my sister lives in Buffalo, NY and she and her husband took me to the Anchor Bar in Buffalo for chicken wings before anyone in the world even knew what "Buffalo Wings" even were. The Anchor Bar was the place which started it all. I never would have dreamed in a million years the Anchor Bar's 'Buffalo Wings' would turn into such a thing. I guess it makes perfect sense though.

And man, ooooohhhhh-weee, were those wings GOOD!!! I must have eaten about a hundred of those things, just as hot as they could make 'em! They had Regular, Medium and Hot varieties...and you know what yours truly was ordering!!! They even had some secret extra hot ones which weren't on the menu. After our waitress saw me gobble up the 'Hot' variety, she said she could have them whip up some of the 'Extra-Hot' ones. I was all over that!

This really should be posted under the Social Issues and Civil Unrest forum. It's like something straight out of Idiocracy.

They said "12 hours straight" not How Many would be eaten.
She could eat 10 an hour.

I'm by no means a fan or even spectator of these events, but they do pique my curiosity from time to time, due to the extreme volume of food being inhaled by these "pro athletes" (😁).
I am subbed to Matt Stonie on YT, who has taken down Chestnut before in Hot Dog and I believe Gyro eating competitions.
It amazes me how the human body can force itself to do things it would never do under any circumstances normally.
As per the idea that this is wrong, due to starving people in the world, I get it.
But there have been people starving since the beginning of time. It didn't stop the advent of the The Food Network, high end cuisine, 40% food waste, etc.
Hands Across America, Live Aid, and all that solved what? There are always haves and have nots.
That's part of the balance of life.
Either way, I've gone off on a tangent here, I apologize. My morning "tea" must've made me philosophical, if that fits lol.
I think I'll go now.
Live long and prosper. 🖖

I have watched many of Molly's videos, I don't know where she can even put as much as she does away. I have often thought of this as gluttony.

Ten hours of eating could be anything from a leisurely wing every few minutes to ten or fifteen pounds, that part wasn't clear, though it says as many as he can. Put a little ghost pepper hot sauce in the mix, and then we have a contest...

Thank you for saying this. I can't say the extent of my disgust when people have tomato throwing and milk throwing and pie eating masses for fun when the food could have been canned and sent to hungry kids who look through garbage everyday fr something they can eat. It is a heart breaker that we can be so thoughtless.

The Hooters in Rochester, NY didn't last long. The food, including the wings, just wasn't that good compared to other local sport bars. After a while, even the notoriety of the "Hooter Girls" wore off.

Several years ago I visited a casino along the I-5 corridor. Once inside, the nice air conditioning was refreshing after the long walk from the edges of the parking lot. The place was packed with people many just sitting around machines with ciggies hanging from their mouths, the bells and chimes ringing in the ears of all to ensure to all that they were having a good time just as they used to have at a children's carnival.

Once inside and close to the door was a strange phenomenon, two rows of 8 slot machines sitting back to back and at them 16 people sitting fervently at each one. Around the little island of 16 slot machines was a fancy roped cordon hanging on ornate brass posts marking off the area it surrounded. Inside the roped off area was a man with a microphone announcing a slot machine tourney.... '

When he blew his whistle all 16 people began to operate their slot machines. Not the old fashioned ones with the arms that needed to be cranked down before they would spring back and the tumblers spinning and spinning but instead, 16 modern machines with flashing lights and bright colors and abundant noise makers. As the competition progressed the action commenced to 16 people sitting, watching their machines intently and doing nothing more than poking one finger at a button as fast as they could. Over and over and over like a sub machine gun. Ratta tat tat ratta tat tat, all the while being color commentated by the dude with the microphone.

As I passed the event on my way to loose my 100 bucks at a poker table it struck me that as as bad as all of that was, the really striking sadness of it all was that all around the cordoned off area stood dozens of people happily watching it all.

I'm on board with BlueJacket as well Sea. At least to some of us, this concept speaks volumes about the nature of our what some call ''first world problems''.

Certainly it speaks to the nature of ''promotional'' blitzes that companies will sponsor to try to get people in their doors. But more than that this kind of thing is spread into the general pop culture on news and talk shows as if it is exciting and great sport as well. Oh look, another record has been broken...To me it sums up the rising vacuity of American culture.

I have the same opinion of strip clubs...


Why would I want to pay someone 40$ to dry hump my leg?!?!

At that point I would rather pay 200$ to finish the job..




Imho , like strip clubs it is the worst of both worlds.
