    How much money do you think the Sheas are paying Sam the Sham per year ?

    “update Post-contest interview with Joey Chestnut. He says he made $300,000 from competitive eating last year.”

    I need to save this post. I said a year ago Chestnut and a few other of the top eater make $100,000 or more a year. This quote proves me right.

    Oh, and Erik Lamkin: shut the fuck up about how people shouldn’t be concerned about what celebrity eaters make. Have something to hide?

    Did you see the tie breaker in the video:


    Starting at 0:50, Joey beat Matt by like a quarter of a second to win the eat-off.

    So if that statement by Chestnut has any validity to it he made an additional 250k along with the 53k he made in contest earnings over the last 365 days? Where is that additional 250k coming from? Certainly not endorsements , certainly not YT videos certainly not from the Sheas. Sheas pull in close to 250k doing Nathans but a portion of that lump sum is split up to pay their employees. I think that 300k is a widely exaggerated figure 100k sounds more believable

    Competitive eating has yet to reach the stature where even their top eater is making over a quarter mil per year. If by some stretch it happens to be true then I can understand why he takes this very serious. I believe the Shea’s told him to inflate his salary for the media

    those staredowns are so played out and lame . Kobe vs Stonie is the match we are all waiting for although i think Kobe would school him big time

    we interrupt this topic for a special new bulletin Beautifulbrian has picked 3 straight winning boxes in the NY pick3 lottery over the course of 3 drawings June-3-5 458 469 378 He is red hot on fire . Several days ago he provided 35 pick 3 numbers free of charge and you can still play them he advises not to play the numbers that already hit . If you live outside of NY you can still play online with a site called 5dimes where the payouts are higher than NY For a 50 cent box the payout is 2x what NY pays same applies for pick 4 and pick 3 straight Check out his YT link

    Carmen Yasir Booker & Conti are the only known CE eaters that reside in NY but i doubt Conti visits this site and i doubt Booker plays the numbers

    To those that constantly finish out of the money but continue to compete for the love of the sport so they could high five chestnut during the intros while he makes 300k and all you get is a stale free meal then you’re more of a SAP then I thought you were

    Joey frequently makes appearances at sports games and broadcasting events. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he is paid more for appearance fees than what he actually earns in competition.

    William Myers, Matthew Raible, Mary Bowers, Carlene Lefevre, Nate Biller, Steve Schuster, Nate Figueroa, Pedram Esmaeelzadeh, and Crazy Legs Conti are prime examples.
