Matt Stonie wins World Gyro Eating Championship 2014

Video of Matt Stonie vs Joey Chestnut in the 2014 Niko Niko’s World Gyro Eating Championship at Houston Greek Festival on May 18.

Stonie won the competition with a world record of 24 gyros in 10 minutes. Looks like Chestnut finally has a serious challenger after years of dominance (in the Major League Eating).
