How has this guy not busted something beyond repair? I ask that question every time he wins one of his world eating records. Joey Chestnut is heading to Minnesota for the world rib eating championship. All the glory takes place July 30.
This is how it works, according to Sheet Happens Joey has 12 minutes to eat as many ribs as he can. Of course he has already set the record back in 2013 by downing 13.7 lbs of ribs in 12 minutes.

So, how does this guy make a living? Well, eating of course. He Actually makes a VERY good living by winning these contests as well as his various sponsorships. According to Buzzfeed he makes around $120,000 on that hot dog eating contest alone and up to $600,000 in all. Who wouldn’t love making a living by stuffing their faces?
