    Expose the Sheas for their extreme greed. Without Joey, Kobi competitive eating is boring. If you’re not a top ten eater then eating at the pro level is just an expensive hobby.

    Very cool promo… has my interest peaked!

    @2:14 PM MLE does look like crap… because of the Shea’s, and they are successful because of the Shea’s. This kind of doc may illuminate the general public to some of CE behind the scenes dirty little secrets, this surely will add fans due to the undeniable train wreck appeal you will have after watching “Hungry”. MLE is a hot mess of manipulation and distortion to a large degree. If the Shea’s who are MLE suddenly disappeared the void would be minimal… Nathan’s like other products who have had comp’s or may be interested, will have a event with or with out the MLE and the Shea’s. Sooner or later something’s going to give. Probably sooner thanks to doc’s like hungry. Thanks foe everything MLE… See Ya.

    Have you ever seen a more talented and numerous group of independent competitive eaters as there is today? The future appears to be in favor of the nothing to hide indy’s.

    I don’t understand why people are complaining about the “greed” of the Shea’s. It’s no different than any other privately owned company with independent contractors (as MLE athletes are 1099 employees). The flow of generated money from sponsorships and other things down to the athletes is very similar to that of other comparatively structured athletic organizations. Thankfully this is America so if you really have a problem with how they run things there is nothing stopping you from starting your own organization. If you don’t want to compete in the MLE then your not forced to. Everyone has choices, can do whatever they want and are personally responsible for the choices they make.
    That being said, this documentary would be much better if I didn’t have to hear from Brad Sciullo. A long time ago he took forever to eat a big burger and obscurely made the news one time and calls it his claim to fame. Other than that all I could find about him is just a lot of jealous trash talking and bragging about throwing up a lot. Based on some of the people being interviewed and followed it will be skewed toward the underlying agenda of the documentary which feels pretty negative. Which is pretty common but sad because it looks good but not beneficial in raising interest in the sport.

    Just the fact that Seiken and Brad are in movie is worth the price of admission
