Most couples vacation together, learn new things together or get fit together. Well, Rich LeFevre, known as the Locust, and his wife Carlene eat together, in a big way!
Rich and his wife are world-class competitive eaters who are a couple of the most amazing eaters ever for many reasons, especially their age.
He’s done a good share of eating in his day – seven and a half extra large pizza slices in 15 minutes, over seven pounds of smoked pork in 10 minutes, and a world record of 247 jalapenos in eight minutes!
Although Rich is a machine in the quicker competitions, he’s made a name for himself as a marathon eater – competing in 30-45 minute-long events.
Rich talks to Growing Bolder about his accomplishments and his family affair with eating.
