At 23.62 Sec, This Filipino Guy Is The World’s Fastest 12-Inch Pizza Eater

How much do you love pizza and how fast can you consume one? For Kelvin Medina of the Philippines, it takes less than 24 seconds to finish a 12-inch pizza.

Yes, Kelvin is currently the record holder of the title “fastest time to eat a 12 inch pizza” and he achieved that unbelievable feat in an event held at the Market! Market! activity center in Taguig, Metro Manila on April 12, 2015, according to the Guinness World Records.

Earning the record wasn’t an easy one since Kelvin had to make it through several elimination rounds before he later competed one-on-one with Ricardo Francisco IV.
