    (November 25, 1983- )
    Born in Vallejo, California
    Won the 92nd Annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest (July 4, 2007)
    Set a world record of 66 hot dogs with buns in 12 minutes
    International Federation of Competitive Eating Rookie of the Year (2005)
    He calls himself 'Joey Jaws.'
    In addition to hot dogs, he set records for eating grilled cheese sandwiches (47 in 10 minutes), waffles (18.5 in 10 minutes), ribs (8.4 pounds in 10 minutes), chicken wings (7.05 pounds in 12 minutes) and asparagus (8.6 pounds in 10 minutes).
    He says the 12 minute Nathan's contest takes so much out of him, he needs a four hour nap afterwards.
    He took his girlfriend to a competitive eating contest for their first date.
    By ending Takeru Kobayashi's six-year reign at Nathan's, he brought the gluttony title back to America, where it belongs.
    He says when he's not competing, he watches his calories.
    He earned $50,000 from competitive eating in 2006, noting, 'And that's all on weekends.'
