The 2022 World Slopper Eating Championship

Location: Pueblo, CO
Date: 08-27-2022
Winner: Geoff Esper, with 33 9oz Sloppers in 8 mins


To Pueblo, CO! We ride! For the 4th Annual World Slopper Eating Championship is upon us. Major League Eaters are warmly encouraged to sign up for the chance to compete in this magnificent, delicious event.

When in Pueblo, CO, the slopper is not to be missed. This local delicacy features an open-faced cheeseburger lovingly smothered—slopped, more accurately—in delicious Pueblo green chili. They are delicious and best enjoyed at a recreational pace and in appropriate civilian quantities. All will agree that the slopper pairs well with any moderately priced domestic lager, for those of age. A Bud Light, maybe. Sure, a Bud Light.

Do you have what it takes to challenge the greatest eaters in the world? Will you be the one to break Geoff Esper’s world record of 37.5 sloppers in eight minutes, set in 2020? Will Geoff Esper break his own record? And, if so, what will that new record be? This is The 2022 World Slopper Eating Championship! At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!
