On Thanksgiving we're all competitive eaters, so who better to talk to than Tim "Eater X" Janus, the #2 competitive eater in the world? Yes, the annual Sporkful Thanksgiving show is here, and it's a doozy.

Eater X discusses what happens to his stomach after a contest, why he thinks competitive eating is a sport, why he quit his job as a day trader, how they deal with cheaters on the tour, why most competitive eaters have day jobs (and how much money the top ones make), what it's like to pick up women when you're a competitive eater, and the importance of good dental care.

Finally, Eater X offers a Thanksgiving pep talk to all the eaters out there, professional and otherwise. Happy Thanksgiving!
