Cook, author and restaurateur Steve Martorano was present to host the festivities where 12 professional and amateur eaters competed to see who could eat the most of Martorano’s signature Sunday Gravy pasta. Alongside Stonie was number-one ranked female competitive eater, Miki Sudo, as well as four other professionally ranked eaters.

Spirits were high under the picturesque Arc de Triomphe as the famous Jubilee showgirls from Bally’s Las Vegas escorted eaters on stage and the rules were read for the audience. Once the eight minutes began, Martorano’s famous Sunday Gravy flew as eaters devoured an unbelievable amount of pasta, making history on the Las Vegas Strip.
