Originally aired: Monday, November 18, 2013

Thanksgiving is the one day when we’re all competitive eaters, so for the annual Thanksgiving show, Dan sits down with Tim “Eater X” Janus, the second-ranked competitive eater in the world. Eater X discusses why competitive eating is a sport, what happens to his stomach after contests, how he taught himself to love hot dogs, the problem of cheating on the circuit, the economics of competitive eating as a job, and the importance of good dental care. Finally, he offers Eaters everywhere a Thanksgiving Day pep talk.
