New York City window washer Bill "Crazy Legs" Conti is the world record pancake eater. On July 4, 2002, in his rookie year as a competitive eater, Conti ate a 3.5 pound stack of pancakes (and bacon) in 12 minutes at the Hibernation Cup in Anchorage, Alaska. A documentary was produced about his life called Crazy Legs Conti: Zen and the Art of Competitive Eating.
