Joey Chestnut Wins Brain-Eating Competition At Minneapolis Zombie Pub Crawl

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."
