Winner: , Hooters Wings
Total Prizes: $1,000 total purse + Trip to compete in Hooters World Wing-Eating Championship


It's back! The Hooters World Wing-Eating Championship circuit returns for the 2013 season—a multi-stop tour that pits the greatest eaters in the world against the delicious, world-famous wings of Hooters. In last year's Grand Finale held in Clearwater, FL, world #1 Joey Chestnut prevailed, downing 144 wings in just 10 minutes to edge Adrian "the Rabbit" Morgan by just four wings. So close. This year's event promises more razor-close MLE action.

The first stop on this year's Hooters circuit is Panama City, FL—home to America's most-rocking Spring Break celebration—on Saturday March 30, 2013. This year, not only will the champion of each qualifying Hooters World Wing-Eating Championship event earn the right to compete at this year's Grand FInale, so too will the second and third-place finishers.

You read that right: First, second and third all win a trip to compete in the Hooters World Wing-Eating Championship, plus $500, $300 and $200 respectively.

Hooters Wings. Spring Break. More chances than ever to qualify. Nothing could be finer—don't miss your chance to become the Hooters World Wing Eating Champion!
