The Buffalo Wing Festival announced it would not hold a 2020 event today. With the removal of the Lewisville, TX tamale contest, scheduled for September, there are currently no upcoming contests with a date on the MLE calendar. (Smoke's Poutinerie contest remains listed without a date). The Colorado State Fair will be scaled back, so a Slopper eating contest appears unlikely.

Baltimore Ravens center Bradley Bozeman completed the Big Texan 72 ounce steak in about 50 minutes, which I think makes him the second active NFL player to have completed the Amarillo, TX challenge after Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. The stop was part of a 6 week cross-country tour to promote anti-bullying efforts.

The January 27 episode of 9-1-1: Lone Star will have an emergency at a steak eating contest. The original 9-1-1 set in Los Angeles had a crisis at an insect eating contest on its October 22, 2018 show. This is not the first steak eating contest incident on a Fox program. The March 28, 1999 episode of the Simpsons (Maximum Homerdrive) had a fatality after a steak challenge went wrong.
The pro division of the La Costeña Jalapeño Eating Contest February 22 in Laredo, TX will award $3000/$1500/$750. The amateur competition will pay out $500/$400/$300.
