Russian man eats $5K worth of fish eggs


In America, there are pie and hotdog-eating contests. In Russia, there is now a competition to see how much caviar you can swallow.

Twelve contestants were selected from a lottery to compete in the first-ever eating contest featuring the pricey fish eggs.

The winner, 49-year-old Alexander Valov, devoured 1 pound of caviar in one minute and 26 seconds.  After eating the roughly $5,000 worth of caviar, Valov was awarded 10,000 rubles ($340) and several jars of caviar.

The contest cost $70,000 to produce. That's a lot of caviar.

Look here for a gag-inducing photo of the winner in action.
