    I noticed they always play that same song when Joey Chestnut is introduced. Do the other Major League Eaters have individualized walk up music (songs that are played when they are introduced to psych them up or show off their personality)? I know all players do in college and pro baseball.

    In this tweet, Miki said some girl asked for her taco-stained shirt. Why would anyone want such a shirt? Does it have value on eBay?


    “Some AMAZING chick just asked for my @eatingcontest taco-stained shirt in exchange for this clean one!! PLEASE tag me if you’re that chick!”

    @anon 9:11 MLE used to personalize the entry song per eater but that is a thing of the past.

    Thanks 9:50. That’s too bad; that would help invigorate the sport, although the music might interfere with their own pre-contest production.

    I thought Matt Stonie’s 103 taco record was impressive. I didn’t think that Joey was going to come put this strong this year.

    910 PM the music played prior to contest is what George shea likes and not the competitors
