Tim "Eater X" Janus
New York, NY
His given name is Tim Janus, but to the competitive eating community he is a man of mystery, Eater X, whose inner torment is concealed by a mask. Eater X has distinguished himself in the eating community, performing well in pie, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, cannoli, brats, and corned beef and cabbage. In 2007, he shattered the tamale record, taking down 71 in 12 minutes. This 2004 Rookie of the Year is also the tiramisu-eating champion of the world and clearly represents the future of competitive eating in style, composure and ability. He is a pizza cook by trade and an eater by disposition. He is single and lives in New York City's East Village.
