    Rable is a joke Myers is pushing the 500lb mark on the scale. What is their purpose?

    Raible might not be high ranked, but at least he’s an active participant. Unlike others near his ranking. Plus he has fun doing it!

    Bill Myers strikes me as a person who doesn’t talk to anyone in CE. I could be wrong, but that is just the impression I get of him. On the surface, he is ever loyal to MLE, but then does a ton of food challenges on the side, which he keeps secret. He is a very bad eater too. Not that there is anything wrong with being bad, but he is so bad it’s like he is not even trying to be competitive at the table. I don’t understand it. You need to have at least some talent to continue. Why does he still do it? I think even Brian Seiken would destroy him in a contest.

    Why do you care?No wander competitive eating is on the slide. Why would anyone want to get bashed for having fun. This site started all this by allowing bashing of one of the oldest fun things to do

    Myers is an ok guy Doesnt say much but if you talk to him hes usually more than happy to have a conversation with you. What i cannot understand is why he continues competing in Nathans when he has no chance to get in. I think after all these years the Shea brothers should do the right thing and find an easy qualifier for him like they have been doing for Conti for the last 15 yrs

    I am watching live stream on FB as we speak. Myers could barely get up the steps during intros I know the camera puts on some weight but he genuinely looks 600 lbs
