Italian hot pepper eating champion: .65 oz/ minute

UPI reports on the peperoncino eating contest in Albese in northern Italy. The winner, Franco Rotunno, managed 19.5 ounces of peppers in 30 minutes. Drinking water and wine and eating bread and potatos were allowed. The women’s division winner, Mariella Andreani, ate 8.8 ounces. Three Thais participated, making this contest perhaps the first with international representation in which the winner failed to eat more than an ounce per minute.
