Jaws is back!!!
Just days after losing his crown at a famous shrimp cocktail eating contest — Joey Chestnut redeemed himself at a Cleveland Cavaliers game, destroying the field in a pierogi competition.
The #1 competitive eater in the world — who just lost by a wide margin at the St. Elmo shrimp cocktail eating contest in Indianapolis on Saturday for the first time in EIGHT YEARS — went up against Cavs fans during the halftime show of the Lakers game … and got his redemption.
Rockin’ a Cleveland hoodie — Chestnut stuffed his face, taking down a total of 47 pierogies … while everyone else only ate 33 combined.
The 39-year-old was thrilled to be back in the winner’s circle … holding up a belt with the Cavaliers’ mascot — while wearing a big smile on his face.
Of course, things couldn’t have looked worse for Chestnut just three days prior … when he lost by nearly SEVEN pounds to Geoffrey Esper at the famous shrimp event.
Seems the leg injury that hampered him during the contest is getting healthier — which, apparently, is great news for his stomach!!
