    I just watched this video . It has become shall i say slapstick comedy at its worst. For a minute i thought Prudence Dibenedetto was Krazy Kevin Lipsitz . The resemblance is uncanny Ed Jarvis appears to look the same weight wise like 2002 wearing that same 19 title trenchcoat and bandana from 2006 which were broken during Obama first term as President still hoping he will be noticed long 10yrs after he retired Crazy Legs Conti fatter than ever looking more like grissly adams with every passing day rooting on Esper and Badlands at the same time to a crowd of 10 . He would have made a great Thor in the latest Avenger movie Endgames . The highlight of the video is Badlands rapping to an empty Duck stadium

    It was not an empty duck stadium he was rapping to the fink brothers Conti and Larell husband whom i believe were the only people in the stands

    Anon 716 like I’ve stated numerous times, I’d welcome the opportunity to practice with you, learn some winning techniques and hopefully one day hit numbers as high as yours. It would be my pleasure.

    The oldest Nathans restaurant to date besides Coney is Kings Plaza mall in Brooklyn. Why cant they hold a qualifier at that location after all these years so Booker can get in competing in his hometown

    Be careful anonymous 7:16 she will send messages to all of your facebook friends telling them to block you. She’s a hater on a witch hunt but it’s all in the name of Jesus so it’s a holy crusade.

    Love is Forever, are you kidding me? Your hate spews beyond disgusting comments. Larell doesn’t deserve any of those hateful comments. She is a woman of talent and principles. You are a pox on eatfeats. That is what you give to competitive eating.

    at his weight and age 50 Booker should not be competing. Is doctor giving him the green light to compete? I doubt it . Any physician in his right mind approving such actions should have his medical license revoked

    From what i remember Booker told me heart disease and diabetes does not run in his family but liver issues do . This is not to say that just because genetic factors are clean doesn’t mean that you won’t get diagnosed with those diseases if you continue to indulge in gluttony. When you walk into a doctor office at an obese weight even before you get hooked up to heart machines you are already a target for doctors to make money off your health plan poisen your body with all sorts of meds and grim future you have ahead of you . . If Booker can get down to 250 from his current weight of 400 plus i think he will be ok
