Friday morning at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia marked the 20th Annual 94WIP Wing Bowl. The winner of this annual event was Takeru Kobatashi who some call the greatest competitive eaters of all-time. He set a new Wing Bowl record downing 337 wings beating the old record set by Super Squibb in 2011.
Kobatashi told everyone after the competition he could of downed another 100 wings if he had to. He really showed why he is considered the best competitive eaters out there by many. His closest competitor Super Squibb, who won the event the previous three years finished second downing an impressive 271 wings. Bill "El Wingador" Simmons, a legend and the five time Wing Bowl Champion came in third place putting down 251 wings and Chilita, a female competitor finished in fourth place eating 238 wings.
Kobatashi who is well known for winning the Nathan's Hotdog Eating Contest on Coney Island is a six time champion there. Kobatashi won $20,000 and a championship ring and Super Squibb finished second and won a 2012 Chevy Camaro.
Wing Bowl XX was attended by thousands and the Wells Fargo Center was completely sold out. This has become a Philadelphia spectacular and an annual tradition.
Another major part of Wing Bowl are the very sexy Wingettes. There was more than 125 Wingettes at this years event. The Wingettes were competting for Wingette of the Year. Attending the event as VIP Wingettes were adult film star legends Jenna Jameson and Mary Carey.
Wing Bowl was created in 1993 by Sportsradio 94WIP Morning Show host Al Morganti as a way to have Philadelphia sports fans to have something to divert the fans from the pro sports championship droughts that were happening during that period of time. The event went from year one when it was held in a Center City Philadelphia Hotel lobby to now in front of a sellout crowd of over 20,000 in the Wells Fargo Center. It has become an annual event in Philadelphia every Friday before the Super Bowl.
