Eric “Badlands” Booker

 

Eric “Badlands” Booker: eater, rapper, people’s champion. Badlands will be sure to entertain this Fourth of July with both his eating skills and a microphone.

Badlands won the men’s division of the Nathan’s Famous hot dog eating contest qualifier in Bloomingdlae, Illinois with 27.5 hot dogs. Before the contest, he wowed the crowd by performing one of his original eating-focused raps. He then went on to dominate the HDBs and secure a spot at the table on July 4.

Booker’s eating records include 15 burritos in 8 minutes, 64 fun size candy bars in 6 minutes, and 21 baseball-sized matzo balls in 5 minutes, 25 seconds. His music records include Extended Play, Big Man Mentality, and Surf & Stillwell The Final Vision.

A regular on the competitive eating circuit, 2014 will be Badlands Booker’s 16th appearance at the Nathan’s Famous hot dog eating contest since 1997.
