JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Let them eat cake. The wedding cake eating contest may have been a bit unconventional, but what else would guests expect when the groom is one of the world's top competitive eaters.
Hall Hunt, who can down 63 Krystal burgers in eight minutes, and Emily Wright served burgers at their wedding reception in north Florida last month in a nod to Hunt's past time.
The civil engineer has eaten his way to $60,000 in the past five years.
The No. 1-ranked competitive eater in the world, Joey Chestnut was also a guest at the wedding. The hot dog eating champs' presence was too good to pass up. The bride, groom and Chestnut were challenged to a cake eating contest — using forks — at the reception. The bride won.
