    I am not happy that the event which hosted the Nathan’s qualifier, Giant Barbeque in DC, had a picture of the Oscar Mayer wiener truck on their instagram:

    If Richard Shea is President of MLE, what is George Shea? ? Is he CEO or COO? I assume MLE is not public, so he can’t be Chairman of the Board?

    Michael Hashack (sp???) was the guy with long hair
    Aaron Brooks was the Marine Corps Major from San Diego : 7 HDB

    Richard Shea made fun of Bill’s weight, indirectly, by saying flyers would be concerned with in Bill Myers had the middle seat in a plane aisle.

    Richard Shea does not rap as well as George Shea.

    He made fun of Bill weight at Citifield qualifier during the intros. A hot blonde girl in the crowd was spotted laughing after the remarks which i don’t think was very funny . Bill is a good guy who enjoys eating leave him alone

    Speaking of Juliet Lee there was a song released around 10 yrs ago by Brian Seiken about Juliet Lee cheating . Lyrics were pretty decent but because of Seiken horrific howling voice the song went nowhere

    Lee is the biggest cheater alive or dead that has ever competed in any sport in history.

    Notice that MLE twitter has no problem reporting 3rd 4th and 5 place finishers now that Seiken and Wayne werent in it Guess what Seiken is headed to Illinois and this time he will finally make it in . No competition there unless Leon Feingold sister or Gavonne shows up LOL LOL LOL

    the biggest crybaby and jealous loser in the history of competitive eating is Allen Goldstein. Instead of going out with dignity and pride he cries foul and complains about losing to a much better eater Yasir Arafat. Did i get his name right? Instead he does some stupid barbecue eating challenge with his cousin which he failed anyway and has the nerve to wear a criff dog shirt to rub it in even more. Mind you he was given a gift ranking of 23 instead of 43 which is where he should have been in the first place. Thats the thanks George Shea gets for treating him like a son even though Goldstein is at least 10yrs his senior .

    Lee didn’t eat 28. She never eats all her food.

    In this contest, she probably ate 10 and then followed her MO and threw:

    *A couple down her shirt
    *A few under the table
    *Some on her neighbor’s plates
    *Stuffed a few in her cup
    *The rest behind her back aka “Julietting”, see the wikipedia entry on “Julietting”

    Then she threw her usual temper tantrum and begged the judges to turn a blind eye to her cheating in this and every fucking contest.


    See just a few of the many posts on Juliet Lee’s caught cheating over the years:

    Over the past 5 years Juliet has eaten as clean as most any eater on the circuit! It’s speed eating. If you want a neat eating contest, go to the kiddie circuit, and when you grow up, go back to MLE.

    Lee’s only the third worst cheater. You overlooked Conti and Denmark.

    If females cant eat 18-20 they dont belong in the contest. If your interested in just filling up spots at the table at least let guys like Wild Bill compete with the females . His totals beat most of the females who dont belong there and for all the money he spends on travel hotel etc just to compete in these qualifiers for the love of the sport, thats the least they can do for him

    Speaking of Juliet Lee there was a tribute to Coney Island and George Shea at a club called Rebel on W 30th and 8th ave in NYC in 2008. Dave Baer wanted Seiken to perform the Cheater song at the club . Baer as drunk as a skunk shoves the stick to blogging cd in George face and says “I want BB to sing this song on stage now! George was like “Please Dave go away your drunk” Badlands performed the sweet science instead . I think we heard that 1000 times .
    George has no taste in music this should have been grammy nominated

    And let’s not forget her infamous cheating at Peeps this year caught on livestream, at the big screen for all the audience to see, seen on eater’s videos, and witnessed directly by the sponsor who complained to the emcee. That is embarrassing. Take a look on YouTube at ideas from Peeps 2017 and see Lee’s cheating. Pathetic.

    What kind of 50 year old cheats?


    Lee the Cheater.

    Bullshit ‘Giddy about Ms Lee’, she cheats at every contest, including ones this Nathan’s contest and Peeps from just a couple of months ago.

    For everyone else who’s not biased like ‘Giddy’ aka Mr Lee (the drunk creepy guy she’s always with), see Lee’s cheating at Peep’s on Stonie’s contest video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tbJ2ccROkY&t=359s). FF to the 5:40 mark and watch Lee do her thing.


    Lee the cheater.

    All i can say is that i commend anyone who can make heads or tails out of her conversation. Her English skills are so bad she makes Sonya look like an English lit major

    Holy crap! Lee is the most blatant cheater around. That video clearly demonstrated how pathetic she is. She continued to stuff her mouth for a good 15 seconds after the contest, trying to fit all the peeps in her hands in.

    Hope Michelle makes sure Lee doesn’t get away with it this year. Check her cups, the floor and the table all around her space. That goes for Denmark as well in the men’s contest.

    Michelle better make sure the judges watch Juliet on July 4. She had already screwed her in previous years with her numerous bag of tricks.

    Lee blatantly cheats at every contest.

    She has stolen money out of the pockets of other eaters. Ask any eater their Juliet story and they’ll give you at least 3 times she’s cheated them out of their money.

    Search the Eatfeats archives for dozens and dozens of posts on her cheating and ask other eaters, and they’ll tell you.

    What a pathetic, worthless person.

    The latest nonsense MLE FB page sent Phil Jackson a message asking him to work for MLE. Lame

    This a serious offer from MLE to Phil Jackson.

  36. anonymous said

    June 29, 2017 @ 1:42 pm

    Phil Jackson will never respond back. The Sheas dont pay very much. I expect the offer to be around 50k per year a considerable drop down from the 12 million he was making per year with the Knicks

    On the contrary Seiken is attending a family barbecue in farmingdale unlike an aging toupee wearer with no friends or family with the exception of miss piggy and the friend with the imaginary boat .BTW ever contact your dead beat dad ? Maybe you can add him to the family reunion. LMFAO
