    Very good for a girl but the kitchen and bedroom are the places she needs to be.

    I don’t know that there will ever be another female competitive eater like Sonya Thomas. I think her best days are ahead and anyone whow’s anybody had better jump on her bandwagon or fall to stupidity. It’s really a shame that Juliet Lee has to compete be in the same era as Sonya Thomas. Juliet Lee is one great eater!
