Everything is bigger in Texas and the Rangers' new Champion Dog is no exception. The two foot hot dog with one pound of meat is the latest addition to the Sportservice menu at Rangers Ballpark.

The whopping wiener is topped with chili, sautéed onions and shredded cheese. It may be a bit pricey at $26 but at two feet, you could feed the whole family. Heck you could feed an entire ball team.

The concessionaires are planning on the Champion Dog being a big hit with fans. So if you are planning to pick up a dog at the ball park, make sure to bring your wallet and maybe a fork...lift that is.

Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

For most of us, football food means hot wings and pizza but have you ever wondered how the players chow down?

The Green Bay Packers’ six foot three inch, 285 pound defensive end Jarius Wynn takes his food regimen very seriously and is as disciplined off the field as he is on. The Super Bowl champ loves his family, his football and his Macadamia nut cookies, but he does takes time out for a three week soul food eating sabbatical every year.

And about those Wisconsin cheese curds...

Eatocracy: Do you like to cook?

Jarius Wynn: Yes, I can cook everything, but I'm not too good at cooking macaroni and cheese from scratch. It just never turns out right, but everything else I can cook pretty well.

I like to cook on the grill - steaks, chicken, ribs and burgers. I get that from my dad. My dad is trying to open his own barbecue business.
