    Hell yeah. American heroes don’t fade out! I was dying of stomach cancer in 2007 when Joey took the belt back to America. Just like Joey beat the devil, I beat cancer. And this year I’m gonna watch Joey win again.

    New results. Wu had 0 wins. She didn’t like how they weighed the food. Her tray was .000525679764 lbs over on one tray. Boohoo Wu threw a fit because she wasn’t allowed to bring her tape measure to verify everything. It wasn’t fair for her. Why didn’t the Shea’s treat her like a queen? Don’t you know who she is?

    Or, could it possibly be, that she was too busy failing small challenges to compete? We want your videos you impeccable eater you! Stylish gloves. Are those used for after challenge colon checks? That’s a lot of digging.

    Um, Chestnut near doubled his total from last time, and both he and Stonie broke the previous record by a lot. I think Chestnut is pissed off and this is going to be the year of 70 hot dogs.

    I’m surprised Miki is such a distant 3rd. Not to say that 18 gyros isn’t impressive, but I thought Matt, Joey, and Miki would all be within a ~5-6 gyros of each other.
