    How is that even a fair contest when they ran out of food and just stopped it at 8 minutes?

    Contest is pathetic. Bob won by unfair default.

    The contest was fair, all-but abbreviated. We are proud of our festival, volunteers and sponsors that make this event happen.
    There was a crowd of almost 2 thousand spectators for the event, the largest ever cheering excitedly each second of the contest. The eaters performed fantastically beyond our expectations. It was all out mayhem and the crowd was wild.
    The competition will be held again next year and it will be better than ever.
    We thank all that participated.

    If this was an MLE contest Bob would have taken 6th place not first. Just saying

    funny how some of these former MLE members spoiled brats who made tons of money and were treated like royalty by the organization like shoudt bertoletti and brown walk away from it like they were shitted on when some not so fortunate eaters stayed loyal and got treated like shit and dropped from the rankings

    I’ve always wondered what would happen to Bob if people didn’t kiss his ego all the time.

    You’d think this shouldn’t happen, but I’ve done two contests where they ran out of food: lobster rolls with Gentleman Joe, and a random pierogi contest.
