Matt Stonie's Journey To Be Competitive Eater
Like every other individual of his world, Matt has always loved to eat since his childhood but had never really thought about making it as a full-time career. He started off by participating in small competitions for free food and a T-shirt.
In an interview, he shared his journey of how he started his career?
"It started with a lobster-roll-eating contest five minutes away from my house with $1,000 dollars on the line. I thought, 'Why not, just give it a shot.' I showed up and there was a guy who was expected to win and I beat him by half a lobster roll and took home $1,000 cash. I ate 24 lobster rolls in total…"
One time during his high school, as a joke, he ate 62 hot dogs in a just matter of 10 minutes which somehow became his pa s sion later on.
He started taking his eating capacity seriously and thought of making it his professional career out of it. In 2015, he was able to beat the 8-times defending champion Joey Chestnut Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
