Comments (5) Munchies interviews Joey Chestnut has an interview with Joey Chestnut about his eating techniques for various foods. In the steak section, he says the following about Molly Schuyler:

A lot of women can really eat—[competitive eater] Molly [Schuyler]’s nuts. She goes straight animal. I’ve never eaten a steak like that. She broke my record at the Big Texan. I just use a fork and knife. I didn’t even know you could eat a steak like that, but she went straight wolf. She tore through it like butter. It was insane. I don’t steal techniques from people, but we all borrow and try to enhance techniques from each other.”

Dan Katz reports that protesters from PETA knocked over his plates and threw fake blood on him.
