ESPER TAKES HOSTESS® DONETTES® CROWN!
Major League Eating is proud to announce the return of The World Hostess® Donettes® Eating Championship! This year’s event moves to Austin, TX, and will take place, as is recent tradition, on National Donut Day, Friday June 7th, 2019.
Hostess® Donettes®, as the name suggests, are mini donuts. The Powdered version of these sweet rings of beauty will take pride of place once more at this year’s World Hostess® Donettes® Eating Championship. Major League Eaters from near and far are warmly encouraged to sign up for this year’s championship and a shot at $8,000 in prizes.
At last year’s event, Joey Chestnut—the greatest eater in the history of the world—ate a world record 257 Hostess® Donettes® in six minutes. Chestnut is expected in Austin, TX, to defend—nay, destroy—his record in 2019. Do you dare challenge the great Chestnut? Will it be you who sets a new world record in the discipline? Will you fall short but give your all in the effort? Or would you rather watch the best eaters in the world do what they do so well? This is The World Hostess® Donettes® Eating Championship—at the table or in the crowd, don’t you ever miss it!
