Facebook Video of contest. Around minute 23, Leah Shutkever is announced as having finished before Adam “Beard Meats Food” Moran and is granted the unofficial title of UK’s best competitive eater.

Brandon Clark and Bob Shoudt did a pre-contest Q & A session.

I think this will be the first matchup of Adam “Beard Meats Food” Moran and Leah Shutkever since the UK Battle of Battle Eaters qualifier in 2015.

    Erik took twice as long as Bob to finish the burger, but the two were quite close at the Chronic tacos contest last year. Big difference when you actually have to eat all the food and can’t get away with debris.

    Erik also almost choked on his last patty during the last part of the contest, which lasted a good 10-15 seconds. His pacing was actually pretty fast. He would’ve finished about 30-40 seconds ahead of bob if that hadn’t happened. It’s pretty shitty to see people bash other eaters that actually go out and do contests rather than hide behind computer screens.

    @4:29 your math makes absolutely no sense. Erik was 90 SECONDS slower than Bob. How does your claim of a 10-15 second choke on the last patty translate into 90 secs + the additional 30-40 secs you said he would’ve finished ahead of Bob? Your claim that Erik could’ve finished 30-40 seconds faster than Bob is just BS, since that time would put him equal to or faster than Molly.
