    Out of retirement again.Once again the ifoce shows it has double standard for who it wants to eat.He has competed in other competitions which is against IFOCE policy. I truely feel sorry for Lafevre and how borring his life at home must be’

    Except for HDBs, Joey is getting his ass kicked. He should be ranked no higher than second.

    Shuttup @738 more power to Leferve for still being able to compete at his age and do so well. He is an amazing eater and I wish we could’ve seen how well he could do in his prime. Also you only really need to sign a contract if you do Nathans or win ifoce events constantly. If you placing top 5 ifoce doesn’t really care they only care about money

    Rich Le Fevre is an icon and leader of competitive eating along with Carlene and long before everything became so popular. He was great at the long game. The idiotic comments on here are just that, idiotic. The Locust is amazing, always was, always will be and is still in the game. Hats off to both Rich and Carlene.

    You should have seen the two class acts Rich Lefevre and his wife at the open bar after the grilled cheese finals in NYC in Feb 2006. . It was set up as a courtesy thing by the Sheas . Order what you want but dont go crazy. Well those two did just the opposite. Wings burgers salads shrimp cocktails and to add insult to injury , NO TIP!

    I remember said really needs to get on meds or have a complete memory erase because these comments are only meant to make ridiculous statements and to cause trouble needlessly. Hard to imagine this person getting pleasure from making up so many puffed up memories, inserting into a conversation something that (did not) allegedly happened in 2006. This seems to be what inspires this person, really beyond pathetic. While such stupidity doesn’t really call for a response, most people know the person behind these and that he is anything but an honest “reporter”. He is not a reporter at all but a mean gossip monger spreading lies. How about we start calling him a cheat. What goes around comes around.

    The totals are similar to last year just flip stonie and joey . Replace Bertoletti with Mikki and Adrian Morgan with Jeff who ate the same amount

    9:55 is not Toro, this anonymous wrote that comment. And frankly Seiken is worse than an idiot. Yes, it needs repeating because he promises not to come on here but comes back every time now taking on US Male. He has no scruples, talks about people’s personal lives outside of ce, he stalks Edible, he trips all over himself trying to win back people he has offended, does a Miki dump, the list is endless and will never end. He will not quit. He wins one things hands down. Most despised, most hated, most unprincipled, most lying person in competitive eating.
