MLE top 50 updated, Tim “Eater X” Janus dropped

Michael Deitz noticed the MLE top 50 was updated today. Tim “Eater X” was ejected from the #4 position, ending a streak in the rankings of at least a decade. Other ejections are Scott Thomas (#35) and Marlene Wigginton (#43). New entrants are Steven Schuster (#22) Michael Dietz(#34) and Kassandra Zapata (#42).

It is interesting that Scott Thomas and Marlene Wigginton were removed when they had done competitions in the last 365 days. Eric Livingston and Ben Do have not competed since 2014.

    I know Marlene won’t be in Nathan’s this year since she is pregnant. That probably had something to do with it. She is probably not likely to continue with MLE.

    The only concern to an elderly retired eater with primitive skills is whether or not seiken was dropped from the rankings when in reality his obsession could give a rats ass one way or another

    Congrats to BS for maintaining his #50 ranking. Now he can put the noose away until the next rankings update.

    How in the hell did Steve Hendry stay at #15? He really got screwed having Booker move ahead of him. Where isthe justification in that? Also, why is Juliet still in the top 10?

    I have never ever seen Janus eat for pleasure . I saw him watching others eat for pleasure but never joined in. The times he was invited to dine out with co eaters he declined

    Congrats Mike Deitz on your ranking!

    This is fairly accurate, other than maybe Steve Hendry being a little low, and Lee being higher than Denmark. The most accurate rankings are post-Nathan’s after everyone goes head to head.

    Dietz at 34 isn’t a joke… Who is ranked below him that eats more than 14?

    ryan, I think he’s trying to say that he shouldnt be ranked at all with such a dismal number.

    I think its a no brainer that Seiken 50 ranking is a total disgrace. Most of the eaters ranked in the 30′s Seiken would stand his own or wipe the floor with them. Just wait till Nathans qualifiers and some of those over inflated rankings attached to eaters with primitive skills will soon surface

    11:54: You are very much mistaken, unless you can guarantee he doesn’t purge.

    MLE Power Rankings: these are very nicely done. Do you have a complete list? And can you let us know how these numbers were calculated?

    By taking results and combining them with strength of competition, placement and overall strength in a vareity of disciplines.

    I am shocked Goldstein did not reply to the 147 comment. He must be hanging with his imaginary friend and his boat

    Honestly, I do not think that Goldstein comes on here frequently. 1:47 just loves to try to get a reply, a nasty one is even more fun for him. BS you show nothing at the table for Nathans. Maybe you could beat some of those other eaters but because it is well known by MLE that you whine all the time, your character makes you last place. You also tell tales out of school and reveal things about people and their families. I am sure that MLE is aware of both of these things. This hurts your standing even more.

    Seiken’s rating is 35, one point above Mary Bowers.

    Oji and Hendry each gained a point as did Adrian. Erik lost another one.

    11:08 you are the biggest asshole hypocrite and the fact that you won’t post your real name makes you look just as bad. Goldstein does come on here frequently. More than you tend to believe . He posts here from work , while shopping with the wife or even at the gym where he wastes his time working out with no gain. You seem to thrive on making accusations about someone reveal things about people and their families yet you fail to take into account that same individual making nasty comments about someone living conditions and personal hygiene which are totally false no to mention the same individual who goes on ancestry,com mentioning names and relatives of that same individual in which some of those names don’t even exist. Just shutup and mind your own business Rich or Rona or whoever the hell you are

    Does anybody have any information on why Tim Janus is no longer with MLE? Did he retire? Was it a contract dispute?
