Rake & Herald interviews Aaron Osthoff & Brian Subich

Tracy “Mmm” Goode has an interview with Aaron “A Train” Osthoff and “Big” Brian Subich about their retirement from Major League Eating. Brian Subich announces that he plans to run for District Magistrate Judge in the future. They both advise prospective competitive eaters to focus on fun over earnings and would like to see more prize money allocated to lower finishers.

Osthoff and Subich are two of five eaters who have qualified multiple times for the Nathan’s finals and have recently left Major League Eating (or are competing in non-MLE events), which should open up some spots in the 2015 finals. (Osthoff also qualified for the 2012 finals and did not compete).
