Easter is approaching, and with it comes different types of celebrations. Some people cook elaborate dinners for their friends and family, others take their children to Easter egg hunts. Matt Stonie of San Jose, California, eats. A lot.
Stonie is a legendary competitive eater. At the first World Peeps Eating Championship at National Harbor in Maryland, in 2016, thirteen competitive eaters were given five minutes to eat as many Peeps as possible. Stonie ate 200 Peeps in the allotted time, setting a World Peeps Eating record.

He proved himself again this year: At the second annual World Peeps Eating Championship on April 7, Stonie broke his own record, devouring 255 Peeps in five minutes. He pulled off what would be a nausea-inducing challenge in the hands (or the guts) of an amateur, to win a Peep-adorned trophy and $1,750.
