Eric "Badlands" Booker (born c. 1969), was born in Jamaica, Queens and is an American hip hop artist and record-holding competitive eater.

Competitive eating career

Booker trains for competitions by trying to stretch his stomach and develop jaw strength. He eats large amounts of fruit and vegetables and drinks a gallon of water in a sitting in order to stretch his stomach, and chews over twenty pieces of gum at a time to build jaw strength. He maintains that competitive eating is a healthy sport, and has lost weight since he began competing. He is presently ranked 10th by the IFOCE.

Some of Booker's accomplishments include:

  • Burritos: 15 Qdoba burritos / 8 minutes
