    A contest built for the likes of Manchetti and he can’t compete. Ha ha.

    I didn’t know that this one will happen.
    But, at least something to do to keep me away from boredom!
    Totally gonna cheer on for Matt Stonie!
    He’s a beast, legend, and a great eater.
    Glad I met him back in the San Jose Waffle contest!

    Also, I’ll cheer on for Joey too and he’s a legend and a beast too!
    Two best eaters I’ve met and they are both nice and kind.

    MLE will always try to find a way to continue. It seems that they have though social distancing is a problem. They do not seem to care about their eaters unless they are doing this via virtual connection. Zoom, well the details are difficult but they could do it.

    If they’re going to require EMTs to be present for all of the eaters, this event seems a bit tone deaf during a pandemic because (a) that’s not social distancing, and (b) the EMT might be needed somewhere else.

    Don Moses Lerman should be made aware of this asap. He still holds the baked bean and bologna titles

    If they are doing this contest at home how can EMT be present?

    The first three eaters are good. Why are they even adding the other five ? Where’s Geoff? He’s top three. This was definitely hand picked to make a point. Breeden is the only one on this list with soul in the game.

    Don Lerman posted on his twitter today

    Has anyone heard anything from Sonya Thomas? Her last website update was July 7, 2018. Since that time, she has done no contests, interviews or social media I am aware of.

    I think she feels Sudo ruined her career . She became disgusted with competitive eating . It was reported but not documented that she threw up in Coney at her last Nathans finals appearance and bolted off the stage never to be heard from since

    I don’t think those two were ever friends. I don’t think Sudo was warm to her nor Sonya to Miki.

    Lerman still holds the bologna record 2.6 lbs of chicken bologna in 6 min. Expect that record to be annihilated tonight

    Comical to see that Don Lerman doesn’t believe in freedom of expression.

    Not any more Gideon ate 2 lbs in less than a minute The rest of the eaters destroyed Lerman record anyway

    I just saw Sudo on twitter. Nothing personal , but does she ever talk about anything else beside food and competing?

    Why would Sudo talk about anything else? She has branded herself as a competitive eater. No one cares about her hobbies or opinions or family history or anything else as far as her twitter account is concerned. If she did talk about anything else, people would lose interest.

    She won’t. Competitive eating is her entire life

    Nobody is paying attention to lerman political garbage. See how many replies he gets on twitter. Zero

    The same person keeps saying that competitive eating is someone’s whole life. You have no idea about that. What you see is all related to competitive eating as it should be. If you are so bored and so nasty why not just stop posting and reading. It seems like competitive eating is your whole life, just an excuse to tear other people down.

    If you look at all the ladies FaceStalker pages here are observational facts.
    Lesco posts motivational items, trips, awareness boosts, fund raiser items and the occasional CE blast.
    Reineke posts fitness, relationship, business and occasional CE blast.
    Schuyler posts cats, memes, motivational and occasional CE blast.
    Prudence posts about her kid, acting and pizza .
    Sudo posts CE. She doesn’t even tag Nick in her stuff.
    I’d do them all but facts are facts.

    And your point? None of the above names are relevant to the 8:50 comment. What does tagging Nick in her stuff have anything to do with it.? You said Sudo post CE well i am glad you agree

    People are hilarious……let’s be real……look at everyone’s FB, insta, Twitter, etc…….they use them for different purposes. Some is for marketing their side gig, some is to keep in touch with family, some is to promote their 9-5, some just want constant social reassurance. To each their own. All the girls and guys of CE use their respective platforms for different purposes. The things you say each girl uses it for you’ve cherry picked what goes into them. , and for whatever reason decided to say sudo only mentions CE….which is false, and doesn’t tag me…..which is she does…..but good effort in trying to spread nonsense…..or solid lack of effort in actually looking. Thanks for mentioning our names and keeping us as a topic of discussion though……and as always, don’t forget to like comment share and subscribe! All the best!

    I’ve noticed that Sudo’s boyfriend is always on the defense. He spouts off rather quickly. One would start theorizing that he’s controlling her because there is never a word from her. He’s possibly holding her media hostage. Real men let their women be free. I’ve never controlled my wife.

  31. a word from Sudo 🤣 said

    “Real men let their women be free.”

    So much to address here… but first thing’s first. EatFeats is media?!

    When the best in the world go at it every second counts. btw Dumb theories about relationships you’re not in should be kept to yourself especially if you don’t have the baby nuts to say who you are.

    Nick W all i know is you cannot allow your woman to beat your time today in Oreo cookies no matter how you finish, or she will always be wearing the pants in the family and you cant let that happen Good luck kick her ass

    I don’t think he controls her or at least it does not appear that way. I think it might be the other way around. To my knowledge one of Sudo strong points is that to date, she has never commented on eatfeats as long as she’s been on the circuit

    Booker at 50 yrs of age finishing 2lbs of bologna in 2:16 which was more than half the time of Lerman record , was still able to wipe out Lerman pathetic showing of 2.7 lbs of bologna in 6 minutes at the eats of strength contest
