    Those numbers are backwards. Sonya ate 19 and Russ ate 38.5. Sonya will not make it to the finals this year.

    Yeah but she still pales in comparison to Hall or Eric the Red.

    Good job on hitting the deuce Russ! On a sidenote, It’s really wild to me how many people – especially new people – are putting up solid numbers this year. . .with 10 minutes instead of 12 no less.

    Its funny watching most of you ifoce guys hatin’ on each other.

    Nice job Sonya & Doc on winning your 60 lbs of dogs. (I put Sonya 1st to avoid being further labeled as a misogynist bully)

    Keep up the theatrics Doc, it is desperately needed in this “sport”.

    Hope to share a brew at a Kid Rock show w/you.

    Sonya, Lefevre, Janus blah blah blah same faces all the time. It’s getting played out. How much does this magic potion cost that will enable your intestines to become a human garbage truck

    At least you know their names. Tell me again … the names of a few of the A-I-C-E eaters. I know I must have heard of one of them.

    Congratulations to Sonya! I must say that even I, who surely must be one of her biggest fans, expected her to put down 35 tops. After seeing how many Humble Bob ate in Philadelphia (38), I was applauding her decision not to go there, because quite frankly I didn’t think she could come within three or four HDBs of Bob’s total, given his vast improvement in Krystals in the past year or so, and it is so awful when a person eats over 30 and still does not qualify

    I underestimated Sonya, Big Time. This shorter HDB-eating time limit doesn’t seem to be hurting most of the eaters. I think it’s because before the eaters were trying to pace themselves a bit more. Now it’s just ready, set, go as fast as you can from beginning to end.

    Though I don’t expect Sonya to be able to eat 40 at the finals, I feel now that it is certainly a possibility. I will be rooting for her like a trooper.

    One word of advice for her: Sonya, since you haven’t been practicing thus far, don’t start now. Don’t change a thing between now and July 4th.

    Did they ban that local AICE kid from NC from this Nathan’s contest? I know he competed in some strawberry contest in VA and I assumed he would compete in VA or NC for Nathan’s. Maybe MLE is making sure he is not on the roster. He seemed good at strawberries and andy’s burger, so I figured he would try and get into Nathan’s. I guess AICE isn’t allowed to do Nathan’s. Is that true?

    That’s correct Ethan.
