Chestnut tongue-lashed the competition at the second annual Martorano’s Masters Meatball Eating Championship ... finishing 6 balls ahead of his closest competitor, Rich "The Locust" LeFevre. 

Holly Madison was also on hand to check out the ball gobblers ... but only as a spectator.

110910_chestnut_videoChestnut scored a $1,500 check for his victory  ... which could buy roughly 500 bottles of Pepto Bismol.

Wow! Congratulations! Now you have a trophy on your mantle that confirms that you're a gluttoness pig! And, it looks like Holly Madison is on the same track as all the former American Idol "idols". What's next? Guest appearances at bowling alleys and used car lot openings?

I guess Bridgett WAS the only smart one of the girls. She actually had a brain. I wish her well. The other two "hags-beens" are already licking the floor for opportunities.
