His latest challenge -- ribs.

San Jose's Chestnut is the three time defending champ at the Best in the West Nugget World Rib Eating Championship in Sparks, Nevada.

But when time ran out, Pat "Deep Dish" Bertoletti had downed 5.8 pounds of meat, beating Chestnut by a mere one-tenth of a pound.

Bertoletti won $2,500 and his name goes on a trophy featuring three golden pigs.
