When the zombie apocalypse happens, we'll know whom to avoid.

Acclaimed competitive eater Joey "Jaws" Chestnut was able to eat more brains than anyone else in Saturday's brain-eating competition at Minneapolis' 9th annual Zombie Pub Crawl, WCCO reported.

Chestnut, 27, wolfed down 54 pork-brain tacos in eight minutes for a prize of $1,000, just beating out the runner up, Matt "Mega-Toad" Stonie, who ingested 53.5, according to Eat Feats.

"It was disgusting," Chestnut told Shout Out Minnesota in a post-gluttony interview. He clarified that "[The tacos] actually didn't taste too bad, but the whole thought of eating brain -- I had a couple of big gags."
