A Major Upset in Competitive Eating (VIDEO)

On Saturday, Joey Chestnut became the Susan Boyle of eating.

The sport of Major League Eating saw a startling upheaval as the reigning world champion eater, Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, was defeated by former long-time champion Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi in the Pizza Hut P'Zones Chow-down Challenge this weekend in Los Angeles. The contest was part of Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards on Saturday night, May 30th.

This exciting exclusive video shows the astonishing eating ability of these gustatory gladiators, as well as the urbane wit of emcee George Shea, Chair of the International Federation of Competitive Eating (I.F.O.C.E.).

The competitive eating title and the Coveted Bejeweled Mustard Yellow Belt will be at stake on July 4th at the Nathan"s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island, where legends are made.
