    Wasn’t it all online public voting?

    Isn’t Rene a superintendent? She obviously could influence a larger voter population.

    Darron didn’t even congratulate Rene is his video. Just complained the entire video

    Also, there are LOTS of people the Fink Brothers don’t recognize. The categories and lists would be exhaustive. However, I do appreciate the things they do for the sport.

    In addition, many of the new eaters have no respect for the sport or for other remarkable eaters.

    Who gives a crap how many cookies, calories, etc. are devoured on your YouTube channel.

    Calling out eaters is ridiculous. It’s all just for fun. None of you are going to be able to retire off competitive eating.
