Food lovers from across the globe flocked to New Orleans on Sunday to witness the 10th edition of the Acme Oyster House World Oyster Eating Contest. Year after year, the challenge remains unchanged — the winner has to eat the largest number of oysters in eight minutes.
Last year's winner Darren Green retained his title after eating 44 dozens of oysters. «I love oysters, genuinely I do and you... Еще kinda have to if you want to eat 44 dozens of them. And now I feel great. I won and I retained my title», said Green.
The world record belongs to Sonya Thomas who ate 47 dozens of oysters back in 2012. The championship in New Orleans is a prestigious event in the calendar of the Major Eating League — an organisation specialising in eating contests.
