INDIANAPOLIS – Joey Chestnut, the No. 1 ranked competitive eater in the world, has conquered hot dogs on Coney Island, deep-fried asparagus in California, grilled cheese sandwiches in Arizona and matzo balls in Texas.

It’s time now for Chestnut to put in his sweet tooth and devour as many donut holes as he possibly can later this month in New Castle, Indiana.

Major League Eating, which dubs itself “the world governing body of all stomach-centric sports,” announced Thursday the newest edition to its 2022 slate of sanctioned eating championships.

The 2022 Jack’s Donuts World Donut Hole Eating Championship will take place May 27.

For the food gods, it all makes perfect sense. Jack’s was founded in New Castle in 1961 and since has expanded to more than 20 locations.

While this competition will give bragging rights to the best donut hole eater, it will also establish the first world record in the donut hole category.

Competitors will have eight minutes to consume as many donut holes as they can.  Chestnut already holds a world-record for eating 55 glazed donuts in eight minutes. That’s approximately 14,795 calories.
