    There’s only pro league and that’s MLE. The rest are scrubs.

    Prediction: US Male wins this since all the All Pro eaters are forbidden to go. So are Qwazy and Big Haus. Termite will be second. Moe Train Tracks will be third.

    No one is “forbidden” by the contest… The festival welcomes anyone to participate in the contest. The local winner can double their prize money if they finish top 3.

    Thanks for the 3rd place finish nod, but I’ll be emceeing the event again (as I did last year). My capacity is still solid though! Ha

    Also, the prize money is significantly higher across the board than it was two years ago.

    What about that new local guy from a few years ago who was always finishing third to Shoudt and Brunelli in wings before Wing Bowl? What is his name?

    If Dan Kennedy goes, he might beat Dave Goldstein.

    I wonder if Michael Deitz regrets joining the Evil Empire now? Same with Wayne, who joined All Pro.

    1:59 – That’d be cool if Dan Kennedy signed up. It’s a hike for him though.

    1:53 – Appreciare it! I was excited when asked to take over the contest in my own hometown. The Festival is huge for Kennett Square (PA), and I’m glad to be a part of the weekend’s entertainment for the 100,000+ that attend over the weekend!

    On a side note, the fried mushrooms are damn good. Buona Fods sell a ton at the festival.

    2:01 – I don’t think I could sign a contract. Well, maybe if I was finishing top 3 at every contest and the winning justified it!

    Thanks Moe, but it wasn’t him. It was some newbie in 2015 or 15 in the PA area. I will look him up on my fb. He may not compete anymore.

    I started doing WB in 2015. The only others I can think of are Uncle Rico and Qwazy…

    Good suggestion! But I just remembered it was Stephen Hillegass.

    Stephen’s a good dude. I hope he competes this year!
