Miki Sudo, Darron Breeden, Max Suzuki, Angela Sato and Takeru Kobayashi appear in a promo video for "King of Gluttony" that will be televised on TV Tokyo on January 12. Kobayashi is not shown eating, so he may not be a competitor. Screen captures:
Max Suzuki ate 451 bowls of noodles in 10 minutes to set a contest record at the all Japan wanko soba championship in Morioka, Japan. The typical contest duration is 15 minutes, but he was given a 5 minute handicap due to being a professional.

1W) 29 Michelle “Cardboard Shell” Lesco, highest female total on 2017-18 circuit

Tom Gilbert is expected to be the primary threat to Max Suzuki. This will be his first MLE contest since the 2013 Las Vegas Nathan’s qualifer. His total of 31 was the highest non-winning total on the 2012-13 circuit, but he did not receive the wild card spot in the finals which went to Erik Denmark.
