Verified competitive eating twitter pages

Here are the only twitter pages for people in the competitive eating field I could find that have received a blue checkmark indicating that they have been officially verified:

I think LA Beast is the only person ever associated with IFOCE/MLE to be verified. @eatingcontest, Joey Chestnut, Matt Stonie, Takeru Kobayashi, Miki Sudo, George Shea, Rich Shea and Gersh Kutzman have not been verified. Yuka Kinoshita has not been verified despite now having over 110,000 followers.

    To please the few haters full of rage and jealousy, i will be bringing back my website but under a new domain. There are some that still enjoy the product i put out . The new site will discuss competitive eating from a completely different point of view from before. I will discuss poker as well as invite special guests on my podcast not competitive eating related. The new link will be up and running in a few days I am sure many will be excited to see me back in action

    How will you get competitive eating guests when every one hates you and wouldn’t give you the time of day?

    Seiken is entitled to bring his website back if he wants to. I hope he understands that no one is asking for it, no one wants it, no one will appreciate it, no one will thank him for it and no one will donate one thin dime to support it when the domain expires.

    “Verfied” happens you are a celebrity or well-known person in your field and there will be many fake twitter pages that pop up claiming to be you. Therefore, twitter feels it is necessary to inform everyone which page is really yours.

    Eater and EaterNY are verified, though they have very little content related to competitive eating:

    Darren Rovell is verified:

    Bill Simmons is verfied:

    Does Gersh Kutzman do anything CE related, other than that 30 lb. burrito at Don Chignon? OJ doesn’t follow him on twitter.

    On the flip side, Man vs. Food, Man vs. Food Nation (53K followers), Grace Lee, Kate Ovens, Nela Zisser, Jamie McDonald, and Molly Schuyler are also not verified.

    This was a very fun and insightful topic OJ! Facebook also has a verification system, and Matt Stonie is the only one I know who is verified.

    Oh, Furious Pete, LA Beat, Adam Richman, and Takeru Kobayashi are also verified on facebook. None of the other Japanese eaters appear to be verified.

    Joey Chestnut is not verified on facebook.

    I like topics such as this, and also one like eating challenges that are reluctant to pay out, biggest eating challenge payouts, MLE eaters (like rankings, retired eaters), members of the 30 HDB club (30 HDB in 10 minutes).

    I wish there were a historical section, for items that pre-date eatfeats. Pretty soon, people are not going to know how the CE scene looked in the early 2000′s or 90′s. I wish there were some way to get historical rankings and every change IFOCE has made from the beginning of the system. Same with the Wall of Fame.

    Maybe a section of really good eaters that did not follow through, like Liselle Parillon. What about which contests Tim Janus did not wear face paint? Or wives/girlfriends/sisters of competitive eaters who have participated in contests (Dee Martin, Teresa Subich, Carlene Lefevre, Heather Osthoff, Season Martinez, Angela Hendry, Nicole Rodriquez, Neslie Ricasa, Jan Deitz). Maria Edible does not count since she was an eater before meeting her boyfriend.

    I wish there was an essential list of YouTube channels, facebook pages, twitter accounts,and instagram accounts of active and inactive competitive eaters (eating contests, food challenges, eating stunts).

    I wish there were a list of people who left or were kicked out MLE with hostile feelings or dishonorably (Boone, Bertoletti, Brown, Chapman, O’Karma, Menchetti, LaRue, Kobayashi, Torres, Grace Lee, Dave Goldstein, that guy who did food challenges and was kicked out, only to rejoin later (Nate Biller?), LA Beast, Shoudt, etc.

    Seiken is verified as crazy and lonely. Bringing the site back is only to pass time in his boring life.

    Another idea is top competitive eaters by state (MO: Randy Santel, IL: Pat Bertoletti, IN: Tracy Goode, etc.)

    And competitive eaters who are also body builders (Randy Santel, Nathan Figueroa, Manny Camba, Erik Lamkin, Mitch Dombrowski, Brian Dudzinski, Ronnie Hartman, Juan Rodriquez, Devon Palombo, Jamie McDonald, etc.)

    OJ why dont you start a poll if anyone wants back but eliminate Goldsteins IP because they will stuff the ballots with NO . I think Brian will base his decision upon the poll. If it’s not favorable then i doubt he will bring the site back

    You can set up a poll on twitter when composing a tweet

    OJ i would prefer you start the poll because i rarely use my twitter account my followers are down to the bare minimum and i doubt anyone would bother voting . Not like the old days when was the only game in town. If you do decide to start the poll please screen out the two troublemakers who will for certain spend most of their time voting multiple times for the site not to return. If i do decide to bring back the site it will not be

    ” If it’s not favorable then i doubt he will bring the site back”

    Just use “I” because everyone in competitive eating knows it is you posting this you coward.

    If OJ were to do that poll for you, I can assure you cuz and I would not participate just to prove a point. You on the other hand would vote for yourself and I don’t believe you if you say you wouldn’t.

    January 10, 2016 @ 10:06 am

    I would vote for myself but only once. If you guys decide not to interfere and i get non favorable voting results, then i will dump the idea and move on to bigger and better things but i doubt you will resist temptation .

    I think it is a good idea if Goldstein are not involved in the voting. This way we can find out if others hate his guts and hate the idea of bringing back the website

    January 10, 2016 @ 10:11 am

    Pickle champ is not Seiken Seiken uses his real name and for the umpeenth time all the nasty comments about Goldstein is coming from someone else. Seiken has better things to do than go oink oink oink and make two pays comments

    Not a rumor but sources have confirmed that Gavonne will be Seiken first guest on his new podcast The ratings will go through the roof

    Two troublemakers? I guess only OJ knows from IP addresses but, as I said before, US MALE comments under his own name. For that alone, he is to be congratulated. I just do not understand why two Goldsteins are so attacked so frequently. Seiken could have much to contribute to CE if he would only be less negative. I know you can do this Seiken. Just show us by your actions.

    Just because someone posts under real name doesn’t mean he isn’t posting anonymous also. Get a brain

    I dreamed last night of Brian’s new website (I am not joking). It was called something like or I am having trouble remembering the exact name. It was something close to “seiken”.
