‘Black Widow’ Reigns At Buffalo Wing Contest

BUFFALO, N.Y. (CBS 2) — In the world of competitive eating, bigger doesn’t always mean better.

Sonya Thomas, who calls herself the “Black Widow,” ate 181 chicken wings in 12 minutes and set a new world record at Buffalo’s annual “Wingfest.”

Thomas, who weighs only 105 pounds, beat the top ranked favorite Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, who’s more than twice her size.

Afterward, the 43-year-old said she was still hungry, and ate 20 more wings at another contest an hour later.
