Man gulps 11.5 pounds, wins Ohio chili contest

MASON, Ohio A man nicknamed Humble Bob stuffed himself with 11.5 pounds of a local specialty called chili-spaghetti in only about 10 minutes to claim victory in a holiday eating contest.

Bob Shoudt won $2,500 at the inaugural Skyline Chili Spaghetti eat-off Monday at Kings Island amusement park.

Humble Bob dashed to an early lead, sucking down more than two pounds in less than a minute.

Shoudt, of Philadelphia, is ranked No. 5 by the International Federation of Competitive Eating.

He did so well at vacuuming up the pasta mixture Monday that he narrowly beat the federation s top-ranked competitive eater, Joey Chestnut. Chestnut won this year s July 4 hot dog-eating contest at New York s Coney Island with 59 dogs in 10 minutes.
