How much turkey can one person consume without turning into a Butterball? A lot, apparently!
It was a big day for competitive eater Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, who was crowned the 2011 Wild Turkey 81 Eating World Champion on Tuesday after gobbling up a 5.25 pound bird in 10 minutes, and RadarOnline.com has photos of her amazing feat.
The 105-pound, 42-year-old competitive eater, who is the world champion of several other categories including cheesecake, crawfish, oysters and jalapenos, and is ranked the No. 4 eater in the world, beat out several men for the $1,581 cash prize – including one who was four times her size.
However, don’t expect the petite eater to be gorging on more bird this Thursday.
“I’m going to eat some Korean food,” she explained. “That’s enough turkey."
