SNOWBIRD, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – It was all you can eat today at the 1st Annual Bratwurst eating contest at Snowbird.
The event helped kick off Oktoberfest. Some of the participants in today’s competition are professionals traveling in a pro eating circuit.
The goal was to see who could eat the most brats in ten minutes – minus the buns. The winner was Gideon Oji, a pro eater from Nigeria. He ended up eating 34 and a half brats.
Oji has also been crowned champion in other eating contests as well. “I’ve done 172 wings in ten minutes,” Oji told Good4Utah. “I’ve also done 54 sweet corn in under ten minutes as well.”
Oji received a check for $4,000 today. The next closest competitor ate 29 and a half bratwursts.
