    Congratulations on Joey’s sixpeat and to Tim for edging Pat for second. Matt and Bob really did well also. Next year I look for Juliet to eat as many as Matt did this year. Those two are coming on strong!

    A Train & Heather had to drop out due to Heather’s mom losing her battle with cancer Saturday. Please keep them in your prayers.

    Larellmarie congratulations on your amazing performance today. You are even more amazing for taking the time to recognize the loss suffered by fellow competitive eaters. You are very special.

    Great event. This year’s telecast on ESPN was better than past ones, I thought. The profile with Crazy Legs and Janus was cool. Crazy Legs’ handlebar stache was pretty badass too.

    Did Pat actually eat in that thing or did he put some pants back on?

    Wow, Chestnut sure was slamming Pat. The announcers mentioned something about a feud since Pat beat Chestnut in a contest. It’s sad that Joey can’t be a gracious winner!

    Plenty of galleries of the contest out there. Strangely, none are posted to this site.

    Joey was just being Joey. I didn’t look at his comments concerning Pat as a “slam.” He was just trying to play up the rivalry. A few years ago before the last Krystals Finals I remember Pat stating that Joey was too cocky and needed to be taken down. Same situation.

    Congratulations Joey! I was very impressed with many totals, to include those of Tim, Stoney, Bob, Adrian, and Kong!

    No slam. If you are stupid enough to fall for that fake trash talk then you are not very bright. The both of them are best of friends with a few more fraternity brats

    how bout that banana hammock…too bad they censored most of it!! I didn’t do the “Best Dressed list” last year….(didn’t feel like I had participated enough to know what went on)…but, yesterday was quite the gathering of fantastic accessories – Crazy Legs outdid himself…I like Tim’s subtle touch with the “H” instead of the X….B.O.B., Gravy, Eric, Pretty Boy…you guys are all doing a great job of developing personalities up there…which is what I’ve felt will take MLE to another level. Stonie, you can eat with the best of them, now you gotta come up with some kind of trademark outfit!! And Pat, you are just retarded – and I love it!! Finally, opening the show with Badlands rapping – epic!!

    The last I saw was joey on 66… dunno where 68 came from. Magic powers I guess.

    I cannot say I liked Legs’ “stache,” nor that ridiculous-looking hat he was wearing, both of which are probably responsible for his low number.

    At the end Joey had two left on his plate. I think the numbers being flipped by the bunettes are oftentimes delayed. Some flippers are better than others. Sonya’s muscle-bound flipper was spot on. (I think he’s the same one from last year.)

    Ms Evans, Legs’ numbers were probably because he was wearing only those half-gloves so he could only stuff half the usual amount in them.

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned this yet, I’ll have to rewatch to find out exactly where, but both stonie and joey had minor “reversals”… gags with debris / liquid flying out their mouth. I thought stonie was going to be DQ’d, but was able to get away with it, which i’m glad because he’s been training his ass off. Matt I’m sure you’ll read this, what were your thoughts? It wasn’t like a stomach purge, it was like a gag induced cough that shot some stuff out, but definitely gagging. By the way, by no means do i want this to come off as a negative comment, I just happened to catch glimpse of it while watching the contest and it caught me off guard. Hats off to both of you!

    Oh heavens to betsy Blizz perish the thought that your comment might come off as negative

    There is no such thing as a minor reversal. A reversal means you threw up. You purgeed. A burp that causes a small expulsion of food is not a reversal.
