In his first competitive eating competition since his arrest this past July, Takeru Kobayashi dominated a pizza-eating contest at PIE Wood Fired Pizza Joint? in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Downing 40 slices in 12 minutes, reports the Toronto Sun, Kobayashi defeated "Furious Pete" Czerwinski who only managed to scarf down 29. The prize? $1,500 plus a pizza a day for a year and a reserved parking spot at the restaurant. He's free to park whenever he likes!
