The Fortune Bay World Indian Taco Eating Championship

Location: Tower, MN
Date: 11-03-2018
Winner: Geoff Esper, with a WR 30.5 Fortune Bay Indian Tacos in 8 min!


Northward, we march! Major League Eating will return to the stunning Fortune Bay Resort Casino in Tower, MN, for the second annual installment of the Fortune Bay World Indian Taco Eating Championship. Those wishing to test themselves against this demanding, delicious, food—and against the best eaters in the world in the process—are warmly encouraged to sign up for the chance to compete.

At last year's inaugural Championship, Geoffrey Esper ate 29 Fortune Bay Indian tacos in eight minutes to set a World Record in the discipline and walk away with the belt and the bulk of the cash on offer. In doing so, he bested his nemesis Joey Chestnut by but one Indian Taco. Both eaters are expected to return to northern Minnesota to resume hostilities this year.

Do you wish to challenge the great Esper—a man who, to date, has won 100% of the Fortune Bay World Indian Taco Eating Championships ever to take place on the planet? Do you dare challenge the greatest eaters in the world? Do you simply want to watch the best in the business do what they do so well? This is the Fortune Bay World Indian Taco Eating Championship! At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!
