Tom 'Goose' Gilbert at the 7-Eleven Bigbite Match LaunchTo show us how it's supposed to be done, international competitive eating champion Tom "Goose" Gilbert gave a live demonstration at the launch event. Tom is currently the world record holder in chicken wings eating and has several other titles under his belt. He consumed ten 7-Eleven BigBite Hotdog sandwiches in a little over 3 minutes, wowing the media with his eating prowess.

One can employ a variety of strategies in competitive hotdog-eating. Some separate the meat from the bun, while some would gobble them all altogether. Some would go as far as to dip the whole sandwich in the drink to soften it and make it go down faster. "Different strokes for different folks," event host Paolo Abrera remarked.

Just like Tom, you too can go into competitive eating with 7-Eleven's Bigbite Match Hotdog Eating Challenge. For the complete mechanics, log on to

Oh, and women shouldn't be discouraged from joining 7-Eleven's BigBite Match because one of the best competitive eaters in the world happens to be a svelte 105-pound woman named Sonya Thomas. Sonya holds 29 world competitive eating titles under her belt.
