    8:25 Kobayashi says he will compete in Wing Bowl 20, so presumbably his IFOCE contract will have expired by then.

    It’s been said by others here that IFOCE does not sue members who violate their contracts; the penalty is you are kicked out of IFOCE. So what is preventing Kobi from eating this year??

    His contract is real…. and he got paid real money. Not like the “loose agreement” regular eaters sign.

    His leaving really hurts them. Anyone else leaving, except Chestnut, Bertoletti, Janus, Conti, and Thomas, really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things.

    Wow, I can’t believe Wingador was able to hang that long. Good for him, he must have trained hard as hell.

    Is the final 2 min round just the top 2 eaters or the top 5?

    wow brad the lunatic must have suffered one of his emotional breakdowns we have been accustomed to throughout the years and had to sit this one out. Just proves one thing, lots of hot air with nothing to back it up. The video of Brad talking shit about Pete should be removed by Seiken and or youtube for insubordination. Brad you are nothing but a boob a jerkoff and a joke. Furious Pete would eat you for fuckin breakfast and spit you out at the same time. Where are the videos that claim you ate 20lb burgers? They never existed to begin with thats why!

    Most rigged contest of all time. Very clear that all they wanted was two guys in the end going head to head with very close #’s. I saw guys quitting because the count was so far off. Very exiting contest but very fixed too.

    The top 5 eaters compete in the final round, but not all results are announced.

    Some people like Joe Menchetti that looked good beating up on second rate competition showed the true colors this morning. Since US Male took you to the cleaners it just proves one thing if you were still in the IFOCE some things would never change.

  12. What a Joke! said

    February 4, 2011 @ 11:19 am

    Second rate eaters and rigged results. I can’t even find one major national story on the Wing Bowl. Only a few blogs and local papers like the Cherry Hill Post, not exactly ESPN. At least most national reporters now recognize that the Philly Wing Bowl has become a racist, drunken debacle and a non news event. And speaking of jumping the shark, someone please put a fork in “Furious” Pete, he is done if he couldn’t even beat these has-beens and wannabes. He needs to go back to his old job of self mastication in his Mom’s kitchen to impress his weightlifting buddies.

    Annony 10:13 — I agree. But the time El Wingador beat Sonya after they threw out several of her plates for not being “fully” eaten wings was pretty badly rigged too. A couple months after that bullcrap went down Simmons went to Nathan’s and couldn’t even eat 20 dogs. It was pretty obvious after Simmons’ brief stint with the IFOCE that he really wasn’t that great of an eater. Unfortunately, I think Simmons actually thought he was a good eater until he had to go up against real competition in events that weren’t rigged. I’m sure this Squibb kid would face the same disappointment. I hope it’s obvious now that the Wing Bowl is fixed to whomever Angelo and his crew thinks he can get more mileage out of in terms of publicity for himself.

    If those numbers (and the end of second round totals) are correct, US Male ate 28 wings in 2 minutes.

    So what does a shared third place prize look like? Not Rich and US Male have to go on Caribbean vacation together ? Does that mean they have to share the same rooms with wives?

    February 4, 2011 @ 5:03 pm

    I don’t understand this contest. I find that weighing out wings is the best way to determine who eats the most wings. This avoids the ambiguity of how clean the wings are. With 20 grand and a truck on the line, I wouldn’t want some bum counting and telling me my wings aren’t clean. Also, why are results not released for all other eaters?
    Like some of the above mentioned, seems rigged to me too.

    Had to be Wingador and Squibb in the final. Had to be to two Philly guys. Had to be only for Philly audience. Had to cheat others to get what they want.

    You guys should do your homework. We’ve been telling you for years that the contest is BS. But you guys either forget, or you have to learn the hard way.

    I will say the wing numbers were way off. Wingador stopped eating a bit in the second round while squibb pushed hard the whole time, yet he came out a wing ahead? I would have to say Squibb ate AT LEAST 255 and i really doubt wingador ate 254, but hey, at the end of the day Squibb took home the bacon. Don’t deny the kid is a beast, he ate more wings than the legendary Joey Chesnut ever has. Go Squibb!

    Squibb is easily the best wing eater on the planet.

    Hey JOKE, watch this and tell me I did not eat 28 wings the final 2 minutes. Somebody just happened to have it on video (youtube). I said I had the capacity to go the distance and I meant it. Of course you weren’t there and have no stinkin clue.

    Squibb did a great job and was properly crowned the winner. I got off to a slow start or I would have been there with the final 2 and anybody in attendance can varify that. Furious Pete also kicked ass and unfortunately was shafted big time. He too could of won this event.

    As we say in Philly, wait til next year!

    In the final two minutes it’s all about who has the biggest mouth in which to stuff as many wings as humanly possible.
