ESPER DOMINATES, SETS WORLD RECORD WITH 76 3.2OZ BRATS IN 10 MINS!
To Cincinnati, we ride! Major League Eating is proud to announce the addition of the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati World Bratwurst-Eating Championship to our 2022 circuit. Major League Eaters are warmly encouraged to sign up for the chance to compete in this true legend of the MLE calendar. There is no place like Cincinnati and surely no finer place in which to eat a lot of bratwursts.
At last year’s event, Joey Chestnut—the #1-ranked eater in the world—ate 68 brats in 10 minutes to remain undefeated at the event. Miki Sudo—the #1-ranked female eater in the world—ate 66 in a nail-biting assault on Chestnut’s crown. Nick Wehry ate 51.5. Others ate less.
Will you end Chestnut’s streak? Will you eat less than the winner, but enjoy yourself nonetheless, safe in the knowledge that you did your best? Do you simply want to see the best in the world do what they do so well? This is the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati World Bratwurst-Eating Championship at the legendary Oktoberfest Zinzinnati Festival! Don't you dare miss it!
