BUFFALO, N.Y. – Sonya Thomas, the “Black Widow” of eating contests, choked down 183 chicken wings in 12 minutes breaking her own world record set last year.

By beating Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, Thomas took home first place Sunday at the tenth annual National Buffalo Wings Festival in N.Y. Chestnut came in second with 174 wings devoured.

The 100-pound Thomas of Alexandria, Va., is the reigning wing-eating champion. She downed 181 wings to win the 2010 contest, while Chestnut of San Jose, Calif., settled for second with 169 wings.

Thomas gets $1,500 and a colonic irrigation for her victory. Chestnut wins $750 and a year supply of Tums, and third place gets $300 and apparently no press coverage whatsoever.

Thomas is called the “Black Widow” because she often eats all the male competitors after completing eating contests.
