Woman scarfs down hundreds of chicken wings to win contest

By Michelle Kapusta,

A Nebraska woman scarfed down hundreds of chicken wings to win a competitive eating contest known as 'Wing Bowl' in Philadelphia on Friday morning.

According to CBS, Molly Schuyler tore through 363 wings, setting a new record for the eating competition that has been in existence for 22 years.

The previous record of 337 wings was set by international competitive eating extraordinaire Takeru Kobayashi in 2012.

The competition featured Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, who only ate 65 wings and did not advance to the later rounds.

The group of six left standing after the three rounds competed in a final two-minute round, Philly.com notes.

Schuyler is only the second woman after Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas to win the event.

The 120-pound wife and mother of four is signed with All Pro Eating, the world's only independent competitive eating organization and works as a bartender and waitress in her hometown.

“To tell you the truth, I didn’t even think I was going to win this, I was looking and hoping to finish in the top three,” she said.
