    4/16/05 It has been reported that Competitive Eaters: Charles Hardy 29:30; Brian Seiken 33:00; Allen Goldstein 40:00; Tim Janus 41:20; Crazy Legs Conti 45:00-all successfully completed the J&R Steakhouse Challenge at the Stonybrook, LI location. Although the World Record for this feat was set by the great Cookie Jarvis who gobbled down one of the meat monsters in an unbelievable 7min 15 seconds to break the World Record previously set by Cincinnati Reds pitcher Frank Pastore in the 1970′s. Other notable Eaters who have successfully attempted this feat are AICE’s Bulldozer Johnson in 15 minutes and ChowHound Chapman in 21 minutes.

    Ed Cookie Jarvis has the entire thing on video but all these years he could have got off his fat ass to upload it If it was anyone else the video footage would have been uploaded on 4/17 /05 instead of waiting almost 10yrs to see it. MTV recorded it but because Janus did not finish ahead of the other guys they dumped the footage which was supposed to be included in MTV true life show that aired in 2006

    Leave Molly’s kids alone and out of the discussion. They are very sweet. Besides, ths is the 2000’s, where husbands share in family duties.

    the site is much better now. Some of the nasty vulgar crap has stopped for the time being Lets leave it like that because personal insults get people upset regardless of whether they admit it or not. Stay positive but keep the controversy coming because 100 percent nicey nice never sells
