    Congrats to the MLE’s that ate in double digits. You are the true major league eaters of the sport today and nobody can ever take that away from you. Brian Subich LA Beast Brian D you showed the world that you can compete at any level and anything less than a major league level would be beneath you guys. I am proud of Brian Subich who is coming into his own and putting up impressive numbers late in his career but better late than never . As far as Crazy Legs is concerned his putrid tasting rum cake that was prob Entemans buy one get one free at Waldbaums commenorating his one year abstanance from this site and mine , because he is afraid to deal with the truth,, god bless you my friend. I had no intention of attending an after party commemorating your anniversary. If you have an issue with corn on the cob check your ears next time or throw them out before others snap photos and post them on the net Im just a news guy. I will have a full recap along with High def videos of the dorney park affair later on .

    Eatarama was wearing a teashirt at cheesesteak that featured the same pic as the one in Mcall article. An unnamed eater at the event who doesnt know George and Rich very well said “Is that the dad of the guy MC the contest today”?

    Bertoletti beat Joey by a significant number. Can someone comment on that specifically? Serious answers only please.

    @ anony 942

    Pat did win by a significant margin. Maybe the results at asparagus pushed him to really go all out at his next contest. I’m curious to see how the next battle between him and Stonie shapes up.

    Fraudarama is a joke. He wont travel out of PA due to lack of funds. Maybe we should take a contribution and raise money to get him around everytime a major league event takes place

    To make up for Conti shitty perfornance in cheesesteal he had to pull some kind of stupid attention grabbing stunt after the contest which he’s known for.

    Damn, Pat wasn’t fucking around was he?

    Yes, can we please get the rest of the results. Did BB beat Eatorama? Did BB eat more then 2?

  14. anonymous said

    May 20, 2012 @ 6:51 pm

    anony 608 what is the point of finding out the rest of the results so you can slam BB or anyone else that didnt do as well as everyone else? The best way to describe you is a sado maso troublemaker

    It doesn’t matter that BB didn’t do so well in cheesesteaks. He made the 3 hour trip there, provided some quality video, refused cheap cake, and even got a toilet seat from LA Beast. That’s worth the price of admission in my book.

    Isn’t it strange how OJ RIfkin plays these head games with Seiken and Once in a blue moon he mentions Seiken uploading a documentary video on competitive eating but fails to mention that is the only site right now that has videotape footage of the MLE cheesesteak contest with introductions . It’s almost like he picks and chooses when to play his head games. On another note cannot blame Crazy Legs for staying away from this site with all the negative press he gets

    Wow 690 people were anxious to see what kind of belated birthday gift LA Beast brought for Seiken

    Most people just look at last place. BB had a bad day compared to the rest of the field. If the winner ate 10 his performance would have been considered decent and probably in the money. And yes 939 makes a whole lotta sense

    Remaining results tweeted:

    “CLC-9.5, MariaEdible-9, SMcCarthy-7 & BB w/6.75 to round out the field.”

    Did anybody just notice that Pat topped Joey in prize winnings. That’s quite an accomplishment.

  22. Nice said

    May 21, 2012 @ 3:57 pm

    I’m definately no mathlete, but I calculate the top 5 MLE at a total of $159,856 in winnings. That ain’t bad.

  23. Nice Math said

    May 21, 2012 @ 4:25 pm

    What about the winnings from the top 6-10 and go even further 11-25

  24. anonymous said

    May 21, 2012 @ 8:51 pm

    Maybe some of the cheesesteak competitors didn’t want their totals made public

    Way to go Eatarama finally another african american breaks the color barrier in competitive eating

  26. anonymous said

    May 22, 2012 @ 6:58 am

    It’s 2012 and we still have a color barrier?

  27. anonymous said

    May 22, 2012 @ 9:10 am

    Seems kind of odd that since IFOCE inception only three african americans ate at a predominantly white table. Eric Booker Charles Hardy & Stacey Mccarthy Why is that?

    A’s 10:34, 6:58, and 9:10: There’s no color barrier. You three (or less) black-hearted jackasses, with your yellow, cowardly trouble-intended statements have been showing your arses at the CE table for some time now.

  30. by golly he has got it said

    May 22, 2012 @ 11:02 am

    I think Wright hit it right on the nose. MLE and the Sheas welcome all races and nationalities to the sport. Obvious that black people smell a rat when it comes to competitive eating or they figure there is no money in it for them when you have Sonya Thomas Joey Chestnut Pat B and the gang gobbling up all the cash

    This whole conversation tone is stupid.

    Why is it stupid Rhonda? It’s a touchy subject? Don’t want to face facts? They post about everything else under the sun on this site including personal remarks about people that have no business being here so what’s the occasion?

    Feeble attempts to place race relations into competitive eating is inane, and most likely stems from those same jealous APE, WLOCE, and Kobi’s Kool Aid crew that are desperately looking for any baseless idiotic claim to besmirch the best, most recognized eating organization in the world — MLE. Facts are, no other competitive eating organization has a more diverse number of eaters. In fact, I can’t even think of one APE, WLOCE or indie African-American Eater (so it’s funny you single out MLE). MLE has the top ranked African-American Eater in the World. MLE has the top ranked Korean-American eater in the world. MLE has the top ranked Chinese-American eater in the world. Let alone all the culturally different eaters that are not ranked in the top or former MLE eaters. I could go on but would prefer not to seperate out eaters for their racial differences, and rather bring them together for their mutual love of competition. Get a life you race baiting losers. There’s no place for you in competitive eating.

    Rhonda do you have anything better to do from M-F 9=5 than you post here? We all know you don’t post here on weekends There are plenty of other blogs that would love to debate with you on other topics.
