    No Erik Lamkin? Not surprised since you actually have to finish all the food that’s placed in front of you, and Erik wouldn’t place given the field.

    After the bogus brothers stop flexing to eat the contest will be over. Might as well be serving peeps. Weren’t they hot back in the 90’s? Peeeeeeps!! Terms of endearment from past generations makin a comeback. Like asking Zack Morris for his old car phone.

    Whom are you referring to? Do you mean Killer Kennedy and Gainz? Are they going to be in this contest? And is Wayne still their coach?

    Also, I think “peeps” is a newer word. I know my young cousin, age 12, uses that word all the time on (a social media video site available only via smart phone for kids in school and young people were you dance and lib dub to music for a few seconds). I think Dan is just trying to be cool, or maybe he learned that term from the Carbo Cutie?

    @8:58 don’t disrespect Candace at 10th place. Coach is training him extra hard, and he’ll get demoted if he’s not top 7.

    1) I said I was semi-retired. I did maybe 3-5 contests last year compared to 10 or more in previous years.

    2) I’ve never hid my food addiction but make no mistake, competitive eating is a side affect of it and not a symptom of it.

    3) Regarding the prediction, worst case scenario I think I fall to 6th behind Joe or Wayne, but I’m aiming for, at the very least, 4th to finish in the money.

    So, I was researching who this Mark Lyle is (turns out he is an APE eater that was dropped from the rankings long ago). But I found this blurb from 2005 about him and what the AICE rankings were back then. Interestingly, Kobayashi’s nickname at that time was “The Prince”, not “The Tsunami.”×5524538

    Mark Lyle ‘The Human Vacuum” is 5th in Nation of Competative [sic] Eaters

    He is my step-son…….

    Association of Independent Competitive Eaters

    1. Takeru “The Prince” Kobayashi
    2. “Gentleman” Joe Menchetti
    3. David “Coondog” O’Karma
    4. Bob “Killer” Kuhns
    5. Mark Lyle ‘The Human Vacuum
    6. “Wonderful” Johnny Wuh
    7. Ted “Captain Butthead” Wilson
    8. Pete “Broken Wing” Maurizio
    9. Arnie “Chowhound” Chapman
    10. Tony “Hustle” Harrison

    Summer 2005 Update: Mark has uped [sic] his game and is currently ranked 5th by AICE. Some of his resent accomplishments include: The Great American Chicken Wing Eating Title, and several other near misses for national titles in pastrami, corn on the cob, italian [sic] sausage and italian [sic] sub. Also hot on the media trail, Mark has recently been interviewed by several major Ohio newspapers. Congratulations to The Vacuum on his recent conquest of 3 two-pound beanie burgers (only the 2nd person to accomplish this feat).

    Here is a picture of him.

    Wait a second…how could Kobayashi be ranked in 2005 in both AICE and IFOCE?? Wouldn’t IFOCE have thrown a fit and kicked Kobayashi out??

    Will coach spank Candace or Darron if they don’t win some money?

    Joe would have the best insight on this. I think this was right when AICE split off and they were probably trying to get him to come over or just paying respect to him at the time.

    Mark Lyle is one of the worst eaters ever . Some years back a very short lived internet eating club decided to rank members and give out neat prizes by doing eating challenges from their home. One of them was soft taco challenge. One dude wore an unknown comic mask because he was probably an ifoce member who didnt want to divulge his identity. Lyle ate 20 soft shell tacos from taco bell in i think 5 minutes which an 8 yr old could probably do. As far as the neat prizes? there was none . They folded shop after a month

    So, if the Bogus brothers take the last two places in the contest will they both flex enough to get prostitution money back home? Gas isn’t cheap. I heard peeps are on clearance too. Killer Candace needs to be sponsored by peeps. The 90’s could make an interesting comeback. Coach must be really proud. One will become teachers ass kisser after the contest though. They both can be dead last. Peeeeeps!

    If Dan pukes (as would be the norm) isn’t it just a normal day at that point? He can puke the contest burger, go to eat another after and puke and then claim he ate 10 pounds or some embellished number. Flex them peeps!!!

    In one of Killer’s latest videos, he is shown eating only one French fry at a time. If he didn’t have a reversal of fortune, he for sure would’ve ran out of time.

    Eating one fry at a time is such a waste of time. 5 pounds of fries?! Get outta here!

    Why did Killer delete his hotdogs practice run #2 photo from his Facebook page? The world needs to know how many HDB he ate. He probably didn’t get the right flex angle in.

    Because no unique camera angle or selfie can cover up that he got 8 in before he carbo pukied

    Killer klown, Koach, and Karbo Pukey join Barfington for a match of puke and catastrophic Krushing of their own self esteem. These guys are a joke. koach can’t even do a challenge on an eaters level. All lemmings of losers. Run Nate. Don’t catch the stupid. It’s contagious.
