The Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Challenge: Professional Heat consists of 8 professional eaters from around the world, competing for cash prizes and the highly-coveted title of Chronic Tacos Eating Champion. World-champion eater Takeru Kobayashi from Nagano, Japan — who holds eight Guinness World Records for competitive eating — returns to defend his 2017 Chronic Tacos Eating Champion title. At last year's KLOS Sabroso, Kobayashi devoured an astonishing 159 tacos in 10 minutes — shattering his own 2015 record of 144 tacos.

European taco challenge champion Jesse Pynnönen returns from Heinola, Finland — seeking to beat Kobayashi and become this year's Chronic Tacos Eating Champion. "Last year's competition fueled a fire in me to train harder for this year's contest," states Pynnönen. "I cannot wait to challenge the elite eaters from the US!" Additional professional eaters include Molly Schuyller, Naader Reda, Kevin Ross, Bob Shoudt, David Brunelli, among others.

About Gringo Bandito:

Gringo Bandito was started in 2004 by Dexter Holland, singer for the multi-platinum punk rock band The Offspring, more as a hobby than a business. "I just thought it would be cool to have a hot sauce," says Holland. "I gave away the first batch as Christmas presents to my friends." The response to this new hot sauce was so overwhelming that Holland decided to put it out commercially. Sales were modest at first, and the hot sauce was distributed only in Holland's native Southern California. "It has always been a DIY operation for sure," Holland says. "It started small but it has just kept on growing." After several years and over a million bottles later, Gringo Bandito hot sauce has garnered a worldwide audience and a loyal following. "We're not the most well-known hot sauce out there," says Holland, "but once people try it, they're hooked." Gringo Bandito is now sold in Australia, Japan, Canada, Finland, Switzerland, UK, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Hungary and coast to coast in the US and can be found in the top 10 on's highest customer rated hot sauces amongst 5000+ other products.
