Is 'competitive eating' really a sport, or just glorified gluttony?

These people get actual deals and contracts for stuffing their faces. Do you think it is a real sport like they make it out to be? What next- Olympic Eating? Your thoughts.

Also, the hilarious article that made me think of this. Competitive eater arrested:

  • Glorified gluttony IMHO. I don't think there should be any reward for eating like a pig, imagine how unhealthy those people really are! (and I don't mean fat, I mean unhealthy internally)

  • Gluttony, for sure. I often wonder what is happening to the person internally as well.
