MLE Announces Chacho's World Taco Eating Championship
30 Jul, 2015
Major League Eating is proud to announce the return of Chacho's Tacos to its table of sanctioned eating events. The Chacho's Taco will take center stage at the First Annual Chacho's Taco Festival, a celebration of all that is good, loving and decent about the majestic Chacho's taco. The event will take place in San Jose, CA, the home of the world's #1 ranked and #2-ranked eaters. Or, Joey Chestnut and Matt Stonie, if you have been living under a rock.
Specifics are as follows:
Location: San Jose, CA
Total Prizes: $2,500 total cash purse
At last year's event, Matthew Stonie did something that no-one in San Jose, CA, had ever seen before: He ate 101 tacos in 8 minutes to set a new World Record. This incredible display of power and speed shook the city to its core. They say it has never been the same since. Stonie was fast throughout the contest and did not need Chestnut by his left or right to inspire him to greatness. The need to win came from within. The need to create history came from within.
Who shall reign this year? Can anyone seize the Chachos taco title from Stonie? Can you? Do you have what it takes—and it takes a lot—to stand at this table on this day and do what you do? This is the The Chacho's World Taco Eating Championship. In the crowd or at the table, don't you ever miss it!
This contest will take place at 4.30pm Pacific at Saint James Park in downtown, San Jose, CA!
TOTAL PRIZE PURSE: $2,500!
1st - $1,250
2nd - $650
3rd - $350
4th - $150
5th - $100
