Major League Eating came to Boonville on Saturday night and Chicagoan Pat Bertoletti won his second straight boneless wings eating championship. In 10 minutes, Bertoletti was able to finish off 6.75 pounds of wings, nearly two pounds more than the second place finisher, Jamie McDonald who polished off five pounds.
The total number of wings that Pat ate, equals out to 8,347 calories. To put this into perspective, for a 190 pound guy to burn off that many calories, he would have to walk 4 m.p.h. for 1,127 minutes, which would cover a total of 75 miles in almost 19 hours.
For his $1,500 winning paycheck, he could afford to go to a popular Wings restaurant in Missouri and place 30 orders of their “50 wings platter,” and still have $600 left over.
