    So MULTIPLE MLE eaters ate under 20 bratwurst in today’s contest. What a joke. Why waste your time and money by signing?

    Can someone please tell some of the new eaters to take care of themselves? I have been watching some eaters become way too skinny and also some eaters balloon over 30lbs in less than 3 months. I won’t mention their names because I actually care about them and want them to be well, and they are obviously struggling with something serious. If you know which eaters I am referring to, please help them. They need help. I would help, but I have not even met them and I would not be able to be a trusted confidant to help them through their issues.

    @11:04- we can’t help unless we know names.

    I’m aware of the new skinny eaters that have issues. Not the new fat ones though.

    most of your competitive eaters are struggling with anorexia or bulemic issues especially the females. Try dining out with some of the higher ranked females and they cant even finish a salad . I know this from first hand experience. You expect them to put on some sort of clinic when it is the total opposite. However when it’s time to compete they gorge on the food in front of them like some sort of animal . They have issues and very serious ones

    Pretty sad watching an 80yr old man barf down a ton of food when he should be playing ping pong like all the other old farts his age
