sonya thomas reuters 183 chicken wings no big deal for Sonya 'Black Widow' ThomasArguably the most famous female competitive eater around, Sonya Thomas won another bout Sunday (Sept. 4) when she scarfed down 183 chicken wings in 12 minutes. In addition to the free meal, she won $1,500 from the National Buffalo Wings Festival.

Weighing in at a mere 105 lbs, Thomas beat one of the lead male competitive eaters, Joey Chestnut, who was only able to consume 174 chicken wings.

“In competitive eating I want to eat more or faster than the men. I want to make boys out of them,” Thomas explains on her website about her nickname “The Black Widow.” “It is my desire to eliminate the males.”

A Burger King manager from Alexandria, VA, Thomas holds 38 World Records for her digestive prowess and considers the time she ate 552 oysters in 10 minutes her finest hour.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
