It’s here! The time for trash talk and posturing is over. On Sunday, it’s all about the meatballs.

On Nov. 8 (11:30 a.m.), a host of top-ranked eaters, including the number one-ranked Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, will meet at Martorano’s at Rio Las Vegas for the first-ever Martorano’s Masters Meatball Eating Championship.

The secret ingredient in these famed meatballs? Attitude!

These meatballs have street cred galore.

The winner will get bragging rights as the world meatball-eating champ, as well as taking home the lion’s share of a $3,000 cash purse.
Also joining in the gut-busting fun will be poker bad boy Phil Hellmuth (touting an unsurprassed 11 World Series of Poker Championships) and Angelica Bridges (star of the Strip favorite, “Fantasy”). In case you were on the fence about attending, it should be noted that Maxim magazine recently named Bridges one of the “50 Sexiest Women in the World.”

The 10-minute contest will feature Martorano’s world-famous meatballs, prepared by chef/owner Steve Martorano himself.
