    Does one health food contest change anything when some of the competitors are overweight slobs and eat the worst shit during the year anyhow?

    Eating contest twitter shows the Kale on a hot dog bun. Are they serving them that way this year?

    I am watching this Kale contest as we speak and the more i watch this Splendore guy the more i am convinced the FBTS podcast and all the bullshit associated with it is a scam. Same way everyone associated eatfeats with the Shea brothers insisting Sheas run this site, is basically the same analogy with Sheas and Splendore. This guy is a longtime friend of the Shea brothers . They are funding the podcast and instructed both clowns to initially play dumb and come off as die hard fans of the sport while making it seem as though they are clueless when it comes to competitive eating. Mike was touted and well schooled as a backup replacement MC for quite some time. This explains why all of a sudden he is a well polished Shea soundalike mannerisms, movements , stale cheap one liners etc etc . You just dont walk up on stage and improvise this shit. They are paying him 1k or more to run the show and he better be dong a good job Get my drift?

    Why doesnt Conti get a drivers license for christ sake and drive out to these events I think its about time. The days of walking 600 miles to a contest or car pooling are history. This is 2017 not 1969

    Conti has a drivers license with his legal name Crazylegs.

    Why does CLC follow 6 different people with the name of Sam Barclay on twitter, none of whom is the MLE Sam Barclay?

    What happened to MLE Sam’s twitter account, something like @Sam_is_here I think??

    Thanks for finding that OJ. He must be a private person.

    Speaking of defunct accounts, Neslie Ricasa’s facebook account is gone. The only thing I can find on facebook is a profile for a Neslie Ricasa-Chestnutt in Texas:

    Seiken didn’t leave that post asshole

    12:52: Judging from the spelling errors, he did leave that post.

    Thanks for finding all these links about the contest OJ!

    Not a big deal, but there is a minor mistake: here is the WGRZ article and video:

    Your period spacing and lack of a period at the end gives you away. Of course, you wouldn’t notice spelling errors if you made them.

    8:21: Exactly Brian. You didn’t notice the errors, and got the post wrong too.

    August 15, 2017 @ 3:45 pm

    1131 are you grading papers for spelling? Get a life who cares?

    8:21 Seiken has better things to do but apparently you don’t
