Major League Eating, the organization for professional eaters, is having a cupcake eating contest in Waterloo, Iowa on April 14. The contest will be held at Isle Casino and Hotel. [ I am just now learning that there is a casino in Iowa.] The winner will get $5000. Last year Tim Eater X (he's on the right in the photo above) set the World Record of 42 cupcakes in 8 minutes to win. Will he repeat?!
