The only other one I can think of the Amazing Race team of Joey Chestnut and retired Tim Janus.)

Miki Sudo appears as a character in Bite the Bullet, a new game for the Steam platform by Mega Cat Studios. I think she is the first competitive eater to appear in a video game since the official MLE game was ported to iPhone in 2012.
Miki Sudo appeared at Thrillist.com's "Fasties" fast food awards ceremony. Miki's segments are at 9:15 and 33:00.
Julie Sephi, probably the top female food challenger in continental Europe, attempted to break Randy Santel's time for the Rocky Mountain burger challenge at Route 46 American Resto in Oudenaaarde, Belgium. (video)
5dimes is now offering +350 odds (bet $1 to win $3.50) on someone besides Miki Sudo winning the 2020 Nathan's womens finals, a considerable drop from the +600 offered on January 24.
Leah Shutkever will make the first attempt at the Not So Holy Challenge at Holy Moly in Birmingham England on February 3. The challenge consists of four burgers and fries.

5Dimes is currently accepting bets on the 2020 Original Nathan's finals. Betting against Miki Sudo defending her title at +600 (gambling $1 wins $6) might be a savvy wager if Molly Schuyler is joining MLE as rumored. Joey Chestnut is a -900 favorite (bet $9 to win $1) in the men's contest.
