    Great job, Miki. That was an astonishing performance! Adrian and Sonya are both great eaters but you have proven you’re on the same level as Joey, Kobi and Matt. Can’t wait to see what happens next Saturday in the gyoza contest.

    Miki strutted her stuff. Everybody else sucked. It is insulting to put her at the same table as those she dominates. I agree with Lefevre that she is above all others except Joey Matt and kobi. She is royalty.

    I am a fan of Sonya but that was one heck of a job by the new kid on the block

    It seems so weird that someone that talented does not compete at Nathan’s. Makes no sense.

    Miki will win Gyoza easy. Joey has met his match.

    Rich, remember the nice policeman at Swellin With Melon contest in Brookville, Ohio back in 05? He was very interested in you.

    It just kills the Locust to see younger people putting up better numbers than he ever did. He’s very bored being a stay at home pro eater.

    Anonymous can be just as much a fool as anyone else. Brian should really put a straightjacket on his fingers. The more he comments, the meaner he looks. Just one nasty pain in the comment.

    Sonya acts like she’s the only competitive eater with a full time job. Also sounds like she’s implying that others waste foods, but not her. Pretty arrogant and full of excuses.

    Good for Sonya! About time she speaks up.

    I think 908 is just pointing out that all other eaters, maybe with the exception of Joey Chestnut, have ft jobs. She’s also been competing for years. Saying that someone who’s competed for a lot less time, or is entering a contest for the first time, wastes food, is sort of making excuses. It looks like she’s just putting that out there now because she’s been getting it handed to her recently.

    I think 908 and 115 are just another example of people coming on here and isolating the negative. Nothing she said has not been said before. It’s all addressed on her FAQ page if anyone bothered to look, like I have taken the time to do. Also, I think the site is there for her many fans and not the assholes who post here. Like 950, I am glad she said what she said in every instance.

    So are there still doubters that Miki IS the queen of eating? She has now beaten Sonia in multiple events and continues to dominate most all of the men as well.Great job Miki !!!!!!!!!!!

    If she is so great, why did she not show off her skill July 4th? Hmm? At the most prestigious event in all of CE?

    That shtick’s so played out. Get lost.

    Ms Liberty her personal off the field issues are of no concern to you. She beat the record in her Nathans qualifier as an official rookie in MLE and has dominated since.She will win at Nathans next year and im sure if at any time there was a way to get a sanctioned hot dog event before that Im sure she would win that too. Dont hate just because theres a rookie who just happens to be one of the best ever. the whole 4th of july thing is like listening to the Miami dolphins repeating about the perfect season 30 years later. OLD and NEVER happening again.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Mr Conti’s refreshing article about his dining experiences in. Chicago. Especially the parts where he goes into detail about the restaurants he dined at with Pat . I believe Pat took care of the tab.Thats the least he can do for legs babysitting his lovely bride to be in NYC
