Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas - Weighing in at barely 100 pounds, she has beaten some of the sport’s best, including Eric Booker, Joey Chestnut and Takeru Kobayashi.

What'd you eat: 65 hard-boiled eggs in under 7 minutes. 7 ¾ pounds turducken (that’s a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey) in 12 minutes. And 80 chicken nuggets in 5 minutes
