    If you don’t travel enough to put 14,000 miles on your new car in the first 4 months, you are also a peasant. Live a little people, geez

    Unless you can beat the top 10 male eaters, or you’re a female, there’s no point in going except for a free lunch and a t-shirt.
    Six qualifiers? That’s bullshit. And they’ll fill the table with foreign invitees.

    946, they will announce more qualifiers. Just pipe down over there on your high-horse. And yea, no shit, you need to beat the other top contenders to qualify. That’s kinda how it works…

    If you want a participation trophy, just have a sex change and qualify for women’s contest. Otherwise, STFU

    Molly and Dan would have me counting the seconds until the 4th. We go through the same hopeful phase every year though.

    Maybe a couple girls will enter and eat anywhere from 2-6 hot dogs. That’s not competition eating.

    2:38, you don’t stand a chance anyway. Just do a local contest or 2 where you can actually win some money.
