He might not have won the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. But he won our hearts. If for nothing else, his official introduction during the event:
He was found unconscious by authorities in Tangiers. An American with no family, no identification and no memory of the past. But it soon became evident through his skill in competitive eating that he had been specially trained. Special ops. And now he travels the worldwide eating circuit, seeking clues to his former life. Seeking answers. Ladies and gentlemen, the tiramisu and tamale eating champion of the world, but he remains a man of mystery even to himself. EATER X!"Anyone that's part Wolverine and part Ultimate Warrior is good by me.
Though life in a post-Kobayashi Hot Dog Eating Contest World is rough.
