Philly.com reports today that Kobayashi was ahead of reigning champ Joey Squibb by over 60 chicken wings by the end of the second round. However, he almost lost the match by vomiting at one point. According to Wing Bowl rules, "If you heave, you leave." Luckily for Kobayashi (and all the onlookers), he was able to keep the chicken wings down.
The crowd seemed to be decidedly in favor of Joey Squibb and booed Kobayashi while he flexed upon his victory. All is not lost for Squibb however, who had earlier won a car for being the best local eater in the competition.
Along with chicken wings, Kobayashi has won hot dog, hamburger and roasted pork bun eating competitions, among others.
