Eating Champ Ready To Stuff Face With Wieners

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Shoving as many wieners down your throat is a feat one Chicago man is ready for.

Gravy Brown has been training and preparing for the 94th Annual Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, which will bring the best of the best competitive eaters out to Coney Island, New York, on Saturday (Jul. 4).

Though Brown dishes that training at home is “frowned upon” by organizers of the contest since there are no EMTs present in case the eaters choke, he’s still been practicing like crazy to make sure he places high in the legendary event.

He says, “I’m pretty much ready. It’s ridiculous to think people get to where they’re at without training.”

Brown does simulated runs at home by cooking up hot dogs and scarfing as many down in the allotted time, and that’s about it as far as strategizing.

He says, “A lot of people talk about techniques, but really it’s just shoving food down your throat.”
