Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Champion-eater Joey Chestnut stopped by the KBJR 6 Today studio to talk with morning anchors Emma Rechenberg and Ryan Haff about his upcoming Indian Taco competition.

Chestnut will be participating in Saturday’s Indian Taco Eating competition at Fortune Bay Resort Casino at 5 p.m. in the Woodlands Ballroom.

Although Joey wouldn’t eat ahead of the big day, Ryan Haff gave it his best shot at eating Taco Bell tacos during the interview.

Last year, Joey ate 28 tacos in 8 minutes and came in second place. This year he plans to redeem himself and take home the championship belt.
