WATCH: What it takes to win a year's supply of bacon
WITH a years supply of bacon the line competition was fierce at Kingaroy BaconFest to be the first to down five rashers.
Michael Stonier came out the victor in the final defeating six competitors in front of a vocal crowd.
Mr Stonier is no stranger to food challenges ranked number 14 in Australia for competitive eating.
He became inspired to enter competitions after losing 50 kilograms, dropping from 120kg to 70kg.
"Cheat weekends became a regular thing and I realised I could eat a lot," he said.
"Outside of competitions it is mountains of veggies and I only eat one time a day at night."
It has been two years since Mr Stonier competed for the first time and he said it was the lure of bacon that attracted him to Kingaroy.
"This is one of the bigger events because it is attached to a bigger regional festival," he said.
His result in Kingaroy is on the back of finishing second in the dagwood dog competition at the Ekka.
He ate 18 dogwood dogs in 10 minutes to finish second behind Australia's number one competitive eater who squeezed in one more of the show favourite.
