Former hot dog champ can't down pizza in time

BROOKLYN, NY Kobayashi was hired to eat a 12-inch pizza in less than 105 seconds in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record in Brooklyn on Saturday night.

According to the rules of the challenge, he had to use a knife and fork to eat the pizza and it took him too long, 123 seconds.

Kobayashi blames the pizza. He says it was too soft and difficult to eat.

Kobayashi is on probation after storming the stage during Nathan's Famous 4th of July Hot Dog Eating Contest over a contract dispute that kept him out of the competition.
