The very first Malta Records Festival held at Qormi in May attempted to find, among others, Malta’s fastest eaters. According to the Times of Malta, an individual raviolo (singular of ravioli) weighing nearly 100 kilos and a nine-metre garlic butter roll, both made in Malta, each broke Guinness World Records. Meanwhile, various people tried to eat as much food as they could in the shortest possible time. In honour of these upstanding members of our society, we offer a list of role models: here is SWAG’s list of some of the world’s most notable competitive eaters.

10. Peter Czerwinski

Better known by his stage name Furious Pete. As of 11 April 2014, Czerwinski holds nine Guinness World Records in eating.

 

9. Eric "Badlands" Booker 

Ranked #10 in the world by the IFOCE. Career winnings total more than $20,000.

 

8. Jason "Crazy Legs" Conti

Holds 11 IFOCE eating records, including cannoli (26 in 6 minutes), Chinese dumplings (91 in eight minutes), and grapes (eight pounds, 15 ounces in 10 minutes).
