Krystal Square Off IV World Hamburger Eating Championship

The Krystal Square Off IV World Hamburger Eating Championship will air live on ESPN on Sunday, October 28 from 2:30pm-3:00pm. Featuring the world's finest athletes, this is the contest for which the entire world has been waiting.
The Americans have been dominating the sport of Competitive Eating for the past year. The number 1-ranked eater in the world, Joey Chestnut beat Takeru Kobayashi of Japan at the 4th of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, and Pat Bertoletti beat both Joey and Kobayashi in the chicken wing discipline on Spike TV's MLE Chowdown.
Joey and Pat are extremely closely matched at this point with 5 wins to 5 against each other. Bertoletti qualified this year with 85 Krystals, which was a qualifier record until Joey Chestnut trumped him with 87 Krystals on Saturday. Anticipation is extremely high for one or both of them to eat over 100 Krystals at the finals on Oct. 28.
Tim Janus is close behind them with 73 Krystals, and Bob Shoudt qualified with 69. This Square Off will prove to be one of the greatest displays of athleticism and true grit in American history. The thirteen Major League Eaters who have qualified for the ESPN finals have consumed an impressive 727 Krystal hamburgers in 8 minutes.
George Shea, Chairman of Major Leage Eating states, "The Krystal Square off is a milestone for any serious athlete. This contest is without a doubt the highlight of the Fall competitive eating season."
