    I took 4th, although was announced third to the crowd, with 3.75 cheesesteaks.

    These were harder than funnel cake.

    Congratulations Juliet Lee!! I saw my first eating contest today, and she is freaking awesome – I have a new hero. She made it look easy – she did it in a miniskirt and high heels – I’m not kidding! I hope she comes back to my home town soon!! Brooklyn loves you Juliet!!

    Now that I’m home…

    This was a fun contest in a GREAT location, and the crowd was awesome. It was cool meeting Juliet for the first time, and she was very nice, and a great showing in a mini skirt and high heels. The crowd loved her as well.

    You gotta give her credit. She always keeps it interesting. You never know what she’s up to. She’s probably the most intesting character in CE.

    Juliet showed up 15 minutes before the contest looking like she was going shopping or out for the evening and then put on a clinic. That was fking unbelievable. How easy is it to hate her?

    I wouldn’t say she put on a clinic..top 4 were all within 1/2 a sub or less. But she did throw down, and she cut her shirt to make it pretty RIGHT before we went out

    I never saw Juliet eat like that. She came into that contest determined to kick ass. I also enjoyed chatting with wing kong for almost an hour prior to the contest. His ranking in the IFOCE standings is well justified after his performance yesterday. Cant say enough about Pat as well. I could go for one of those sandwiches right now. I just might make a quick stop by there today. Great work by all the competitors

    Why did Juliet not take the challenge of competing against the more stacked field in Buffalo? Who told her to take the easy road and u-turn it to Brooklyn where it was supposed to be a Wing Kong/Philbin/Shredder matchup?

    WHAT A SPOILER!!! Make up your mind Juliet and don’t be so scared.

    Was it an easy road? She didn’t blow anyone away, and it was constant the whole time. I was not expecting to see her when she walked in 15 minutes before we started, but oh well. She ate well, and won on a very hard food. Congrats to her, Wing Kong and Pat.

    Wing Kong Collins is the true Philly Cheesesteak champion. Let’s cut through the red tape and give the champ his check & trophy. Something seems very wrong to me.

    Juliet is the greatest Filly cheese steak eater of all time!

    Juliet eats with an incredible urgency, it’s something to see, plus that skirt she was wearing was VERY distracting ..I may have to try that technique, myself! 😉

    Pat, I will fly any where to see you eat in a mini skirt. It was a very competitive contest, and the distance between you and Micah was rediculously close.

    Juliet was looking very good yesterday.

    Congratulations Juliet. You ate like the champ you are. I don’t want to sound condescending, but I am really proud of you.

    Pat, I think if you wore a skirt, it would be so ditracting, NO ONE could eat!

    The liquid and the bread should not be making contact whatsoever . When you bite into the food you then pick up the glass or cup and wash it down. It seems that Juliet is bending the rules when you watch the video. When they say no dunking they mean no dunking and no modification
