MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The current World MoonPie Eating Champion Matt “The Megatoad” Stonie will defend his title at the 2016 Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World MoonPie eating contest, October 15 at noon.

In 2015, Matt Stonie set a new MoonPie-eating record by devouring 69 MoonPies in eight minutes. This year, that is the record for contestants to beat to collect the $4,000 prize.

Stonie will face-off against some of the country’s top competitive eaters, such as fourth ranked Cameron Cincotti from New Jersey, fifth ranked Gideon “The Truth” Oji from Georgia, and eight ranked Adrian Morgan from Los Angeles.

“We’re very excited to host this one-of-a-kind event again this fall,” said David Hagel, general manager of Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid. “The MoonPie eating contest is just one of the many fun features of our FLOCTOBERFEST event.”
