    Yasir is doing Citifield therefore dashing Smellkin’s dreams of winning a qualifier with 11. HAHA

    Hey, I’m the guy that came in third. This was my first eating contest against other eaters, so I really didn’t know what to expect. I’ve done a few restaurant challenges (man vs food style challenges) that you can watch on my YouTube channel. Congrats to Gideon and BeeJay, and good luck at Coney Island!

    10:13 hit it right on the nose. Unless you strive to take the belt what is the point of crowding the table by putting up numbers less than half the amt of the champion. So pointless

    Didn’t Duzinski already qualify?

    Woman contest is even more of a joke. Aside from Sonya Michelle and Miki the rest of them can show up at any qualifier and automatically qualify by eating 5 hot dogs along with all inclusive airfare hotel and $200 spending money. Life is beautiful

    8:33, it’s only pointless if you are a bitter low ranked scrub who never made Nathan’s and never will. When you’ve competed on the big stage a few times and know first hand the experience, (which actually is really no big deal) then you can say it’s pointless.

    Before Kobayashi and then Joey, no one came even near to 30 HDB. Besides ability, very few are willing to give the time to try to come up to Belt numbers.You need the lesser ones, even so called table enders. It is great to make it to Nathans with whatever numbers you put up. Otherwise, you may as well do what Kobi does, and they are not contests, just demos. His success has been minimal. Proof of the worth of MLE for him. It’s too bad because he could still dominate.

    I think the guy who brought up the pointless remark is right on target. The over inflated ranking bestowed upon someone who cheated his way into the finals by beating low class competition was not worth of competing on stage with pro eaters. All he wanted was the free hotel and $200 spending money that along with hoping the espn camera would give him 3 seconds of air time which never happened. The camera should focus on the champions and not the table ender

    The camera always focusses on the top eaters. It is the competing, the experience itself that counts for the others.

    You can never get in shape because your uncut abs and flabby forearms were displayed on numerous occasions while being introduced on stage by George Shea . Holding in your stomach trying to hide the fat was so obvious it was downright laughable. George Costanza with a hairpiece minus the glasses . The only thing you accomplish by going to Golds Gym in Howard Beach is stopping off at New Park pizza

    Why does Goldstein continually post the same shit day after day during breaks from his dead end job fitting hearing aids?. The only idiot that might find you amusing is that dopey looking cousin of yours with the IQ of a turtle . Not one person on this site finds you amusing. Matter fact on many occasions they urged you to give it up because nobody gives a shit what you have to say . You were and still are a horrible eater and your entire eating career was not based on trying to beat the best in the sport but more like being content with finishing ahead of Conti and Subich

    Seiken is a yellow belly coward. One minute he says he’s going to eat hot dogs and the minute he finds out gavonne is going to humiliate him with a video, he says oh i’m playing deepthroat cards. Sissy. Coward.

    He’s probably more scared of a certain female eaters BF who owes him a well deserved beat down after trying to pick up his girl at a previous cannoli contest. Love to see him smack that acrylic wig off his burnt head.

    323 if you check out previous comment from last week Seiken posted his poker schedule long before he knew anything about gavonne and honestly it wouldn’t sway his decision one way or another whether anyone shows up

  83. anonymous said

    The only reason Gavonne would even bother showing up is for free hotdogs and free met tickets however Rich has been notified in advance about his intention. He could care less if Seiken shows or doesn’t

    Goldstein never had a fist fight in his entire life . If he did he was probably on the receiving end of a beat down. In your fantasy world Seiken gonna get his ass kicked. Hasn’t happen yet and never will. What is fact is that if anyone is stupid enough to throw the first punch, someone will pay very dearly and there will be blood .Why dont you show up since youre the one always stirring the pot?
