INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Get ready…Set…Eat!
St. Elmo’s restaurant in Indianapolis held its first-ever Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship Saturday.
Contestants had to devour as much of the legendary appetizer as they could in eight minutes.
Among the eaters — local firefighters, police officers and — you guessed it — competitive eater Joey Chestnut.
Chestnut took home the trophy and the $2000 prize after reportedly eating a record nine pounds and four ounces of shrimp.
