Here is this years ultimate Thanksgiving persona non grata. I hope she wasn’t at Dave’s table today…
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Petite former Burger King manager Sonya Thomas wolfed down 7-3/4 pounds of holiday food in 12 minutes on Wednesday to defeat a pair of 400-pound rivals and win the Thanksgiving Invitational eating contest.
The 106-pound Thomas of Alexandria, Virginia, devoured massive helpings of yams, green beans, cranberry sauce and turducken, a turkey stuffed with duck, chicken and sausage, to win the International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE) event.
“I’m full but I could eat more,” Thomas, 36, said. Asked her secret, she said, “I just eat fast, that’s all.”
