Photo Gallery: Competitive Eating Stars Battling at Nintendo World Store


Photographs by Gordon Mark

Serious Eats intern Gordon Mark went to the Nintendo World Store at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan today for the promotional release of Major League Eating: The Game, coming soon for the Nintendo Wii, a game which we've reported
extensively on. Gordon was also there to watch Tim "Eater X" Janus and "Crazy Legs" Conti challenge each other in eating real and virtual watermelon. To the tune of The Who's "Baba O'Riley" (aka "Teenage Wasteland"), Crazy Legs won the six-minute meat-space competition 15 wedges to 15 wedges and one bite. Later, Eater X won the virtual competition because the Crazy Legs character threw up inside the game, an automatic disqualification.

More pictures after the jump.
