PHILADELPHIA (KYW/CNN) – A Pennsylvania mom beat out some bold-talking males in a competition to take home the gold at a wing-eating contest in Philadelphia.
Molly Schuyler, a mother of four, ate 363 wings, shattering the competition's old record of 337.
Schuyler is 125 pounds of domination, and the 5'5" mother took no prisoners and showed the boys whose boss, taking home the crown at Wing Bowl 22.
"I've never seen an arena so big and I didn't think I was going to win," Schuyler said.
But she did win, beating out Patrick Bertoletti in the process. The Chicago native came in talking a big game.
"I didn't come here to lose," Bertoletti said. "[But} Yeah, if I lose, edit that out."
There were many wings left over, but Schuyler didn't leave many. To win the competition, she ate a record 363 wings.
Schuyler was just part of an impressive field on a wild day at the Wells Fargo Arena. The crowd started to pile into the arena at 5:30 a.m., and really got going when a local sports anchor sand the National Anthem.
The crowd had a lot of early morning energy, and included an excited man in a chicken costume.
"All the wings are out there, I got all my wings attached, so it's all good," said Christian Baldaccini.
The contest was just alright for Philadelphia Eagle center Jason Kelce, who was 65 wings and was knocked out in round one.
"I'm happy with that, but there's always that certain competitive nature where you want to come out on top," Kelce said.
Speaking of coming out on top, Schuyler won $22,000 for winning the contest, showing that it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman in the world of competitive eating.
"Just because you're a female doesn't mean you can't eat," Schuyler said.
