Verified competitive eating twitter pages

Here are the only twitter pages for people in the competitive eating field I could find that have received a blue checkmark indicating that they have been officially verified:

I think LA Beast is the only person ever associated with IFOCE/MLE to be verified. @eatingcontest, Joey Chestnut, Matt Stonie, Takeru Kobayashi, Miki Sudo, George Shea, Rich Shea and Gersh Kutzman have not been verified. Yuka Kinoshita has not been verified despite now having over 110,000 followers.
