Seven and a half pounds of turkey in 10 minutes to the stomach of competitive consumer Takeru Kobayashi, natch. He set the new world record by beating out Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas who had swallowed five and a quarter pounds the day before. Dan Rollman of Recordsetter.com says, "Never in my life have witnessed food disappear like that. The man is true culinary Houdini. It was a true honor to be so close to such a legend as he showed off his skills." [HuffPo]
