Eating contest coming to Madison


MADISON (WKOW) -- If you've ever wanted to eat 20 hot dogs in one sitting, you may now have the chance right here in Madison. 

The Association of Independent Competitive Eaters said on Monday it's coming to Madison next year to crown someone king or queen of the mall food court.

The most determined eater will have to devour a lineup of Chinese, Japanese and Italian food. According to the group's web site, the top prize in the professional division is $750, and first place in the collegiate division is $500.

Last year's winner ate 10.1 pounds of chili in five minutes.

The Madison event will be Feb. 6.
