SPARKS, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off officially kicked off on Wednesday with the Annual Championship Rib-Eating Contest.

The best in the world converged along Victorian Avenue in hopes of dethroning Seven-time and Defending Champion Joey "Jaws" Chestnut. But in the end, Chestnut reigned supreme, eating over nine pounds of ribs.

The Best in the West Event continues through the holiday weekend, ending Monday afternoon. The focus now turns to awarding the Best-Cooked Ribs. Defending Champion Famous Dave's will be attempting to repeat against over 20 rib chefs from around the world.

The event is free to the public.
