TUNICA, Miss., Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut added another record to his total by downing 121 Twinkies in 6 minutes at a Mississippi event.

Chestnut came in first during the weekend at the Major League Eating-sanctioned inaugural World Twinkie-Eating Championship at Bally's Casino in Tunica.

His closest competitor, Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie, downed 111 of the cream-filled cakes in the time allowed, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Miki Sudo, the only woman in the competition, came in third with 71 Twinkies.

Chestnut's record-setting feast amounts to 10.2 pounds of Twinkies, containing 18,150 calories, the Sentinel said.
