    Surprised Dave beat Pat. Pat must be out of shape. Also surprised Molly only beat Dave by 2 burgers.

    Where was Joe Menchetti?

    Furious Pete will not do Z Burger anymore. He is done for. His days as a competitive eater are over. He could not even eat a small sandwich in San Francisco a few months ago that Molly did in 3 minutes. He quit at 30 minutes and acknowledged defeat, saying he would get sick and the sandwich was too greasy. LOL. And to think he used to be ranked number one in AICE. [And no, it is not a 6 lb. sandwich like his video title says.]

    Pete insulted the chef in that video by calling the food greasy. He was a fan of Pete’s. Now I don’t know. A number of people took Pete to task in the comments section of the video for being classless.

    Anon you’re a dumbass. Pete quit CE because it didn’t pay enough. He is clearly making way more money than anyone in CE doing what he does.

    So.. would you prefer that he lie and put up a front for people just to protect the feelings of someone else? If the sandwich is so easy, where’s your attempt of it?

    Erik, my dear, it’s called being polite, something you know nothing about. He put the video up for all to see. Go back to cheating; it’s what you do best.

    Hey “The Truth”: Pete is a loser. He quit CE but still tried a supposedly 6 lb. 8000 calories sandwich? Yeah, right. He sucks. Looks like you’re a dumbass.

    And if you are Gideon Oji, fuck you. If you are not, you are besmirching his name.

    Erik, you seem to prefer that people lie rather than call you out for your debris at contest and how it blatantly gives you a huge advantage over the rest of the field. And no, I do not have time for your challenge to go against you in whatever food of my choosing.

    Erik, every time you post, you make yourself look like a dork. Little of what you say is intelligent or logical. It’s comical.

    CE top prospect Jimmy “Lamborghini” Feeney was the top amateur in today’s Z burger competition in DC. All of these “professional” eaters, especially low energy furious Pete should be worried.

    What is this sandwich everyone keeps arguing about? Jimmy Lamborghini Feeney will destroy Dave Brunonelli and out of shape Pat deep fat Bertolucci in this sandwich competition.

    What’s really sad is how many crumbs and bun scraps aren’t consumed. Lamborghini Feeney would have consumed 16 burgers if he had been cutting corners like washed up Molly.

    Team Jimmy “lamborghini” Feeney: congratulations for doing so well. You have a bright future on the sport and your observations are correct!

    The sandwich everyone is talking about is is ($500 prize for breaking the record):


    Molly holds the record with a time of 6:51:

    Dale Boone is a powerful eater in his own right, and did a good job in Florida!

    Great points about Dale Boone. I’d love to see Dale and Lamborghini Feeney compete… a legend in this sport vs an exciting up and comer. Maybe try the Bartolini’s sandwich? Just sad to see that others in this sport aren’t “up to it”

    Mike Hart, I would love to compete against dale “crumbs” Boone. He is an accomplished eater but I wonder how many competitions he would have won had his scraps been counted against him. If Dale competed against me I hope we have fair officiating since Dale has a history of controversial results at the Z Burger challenge.
