Major League Eating returns to Kings Island on Labor Day

“Humble” Bob Shoudt achieved Skyline Chili spaghetti immortality last year at Kings Island, outdueling his rival Joey “Jaws” Chestnut in a epic eating contest that pushed both gluttonous gladiators to the brink.

In a classic Labor Day battle that tested the very depths of their distended stomachs, the Royersford, Pennsylvania native downed 13.50 pounds of chili spaghetti to Chestnut’s 13.25 in 10 minutes to be crowned champion in the first-ever Skyline Chili Spaghetti Eating Contest.

Shouldt will return to Kings Island to defend his title against a field of competitive eaters that includes Chestnut on Labor Day.
