WIP has announced that Takeru Kobayashi, regarded as the world's greatest eater, will attempt to break what the station calls the unofficial cheesesteak-eating record (48 seconds) on Friday (2/4) at Wing Bowl at the Wells Fargo Center.

Kobayashi will not be eating wings with the rest of the crew.

He's listed as "international ambassador."

This explains Kobayashi's visit to Philly last October.
