He’s eaten 64.5 hot dogs, 57 cow brains and 41 lobster rolls - and now an entire turkey? Piece of cake (or 14 pieces, if you’re Takeru Kobayashi.)
A representative for Kobayashi told CNN that the world famous competitive eater would attempt to eat an entire turkey by himself today. Though he originally planned to partake in the full bird at a friend’s house to celebrate his first Thanksgiving in the United States, Kobayashi had a last minute change of plans and will instead fly to Brazil this holiday.
“In the spirit of things, he has just told me that he will be buying a turkey in the morning to eat in the taxi, airport and on the plane,” said Maggie James, Kobayashi’s representative. “He wants to eat it. That’s the truth, so wherever he is, he will still be eating a full turkey and enjoying the taste without a time limit.”
No word on how big said turkey will be, but the dude is known for eating 20 pounds of food in one sitting, so it’s not an unthinkable feat.
