Major League Eating has great news to share: The Oktoberfest Zinzinnati World Bratwurst-Eating Championship returns to our 2017 slate of sanctioned eating championships. Major League Eaters across the land are warmly, heartily encouraged to sign up for the chance to compete in this legendary event. What's more, this year's event comes with a swollen prize purse—$3,500 is up for grabs!

There is simply no place like Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. There is no more protein-packed food on the MLE calendar than this annual challenge of man versus woman versus meat. The brats are served bun-less, in accordance with the teachings of Dr Atkins. There is no hiding in this Championship. You simply have a talent with the meat or you do not. It is as simple as that. At last year's event, Joey Chestnut once more proved that he is the Bratmeister. The Great One ate 67 Glier's Brats in 10 minutes for the win—his seventh straight Cincinnati bratwurst-eating title. He remains undefeated at the event.
