INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (December 5, 2015) – World champion eater Joey Chestnut set a new world record at this year’s St. Elmo shrimp-eating competition.

Last year, Chestnut ate over 10 pounds of shrimp in 8 minutes. And this year he smashed that record by scarfing down 12.25 pounds of shrimp.

Our very own Charlie De Mar was in the local division of the shrimp-eating competition, and he won! We’re all very proud of Charlie!
