Competitive eater Joey Chestnut works his way through his 18th slice of pizza in the Famous Famiglia world championship pizza eating contest in New York City's Times Square. (Joey Chestnut is included in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) He won the $5,000 first prize after eating 45 slices of cheese pizza in 10 minutes. Each slice weighed 109 grams (3.84 ounces) and contained 260 calories. In ten minutes Joey consumed 10.81 pounds (4.9 kilograms) of pizza and drank a gallon of water. The pizza contained 11,700 calories. Joey is on stage between the man in the blue cap and the man with the mohawk hairstyle.
