Legendary competitive eater Joey Chestnut participated in RibMania IV at Chicago's Ribfest, and the champ was unseated by not just one, but two female contestants. Miki Sudo took first place, eating 2.9 pounds of ribs. Michelle Lesco came in second, eating 2.62 pounds. Chestnut came in third place with just over 2.5 pounds. Six-time winner of the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, Chestnut is ranked No. 1 by Major League Eating, while Sudo is ranked 7th and Lesco is 14th.

By the way, Lesco also went on to win a wing-eating competition in Cincinnati the next day, downing 152 wings in 10 minutes.
