Epic Games will hold the #FreeFortnite Cup, a virtual apple eating contest, on August 23. The competition was inspired by the video game being locked out of the Apple App Store. The event is expected to award approximately a million dollars in prizes worldwide, which puts to shame the purse for any real-world eating contest. The top prize is an Alienware gaming laptop with a price of $2500.

update Aug 15 Official game home page. Mega Cat Studios posted a twitter thread of all the competitive eater characters, which also include Naader Reda, Nick Wehry and Yasir Salem.

Lord Shmup posted a clip from the upcoming video game “Bite the Bullet” of Miki Sudo’s characters. Other competitive eaters appearing in the game include Bob Shoudt, Crazy Legs Conti, Jesse Pynnönen, LA Beast and Matt Stonie. update TechRaptor.net has a review of the game with the following description:

The setup is thus: you are a mercenary working for the not-at-all-sinister DarwinCorp, which wants to catalog all the creatures on a now-ruined Earth. Unfortunately, said planet is now infested by a plague of rabid ghouls. Thankfully, you’re equipped with modified biology that allows you to eat literally anything you want, including the stunned, still-alive bodies of your enemies. All this translates to a run-and-gun side-scrolling shooter in which consuming everything in sight is the order of the day. Will Bite the Bullet take its place on the a la carte menu, or is it a recipe for disaster?

Miki Sudo and Nick Wehry attended PAX2020, a video game convention in Boston, to promote the new game Bite the Bullet. Other competitive eaters in the game include Bob Shoudt, Naader Reda, Yasir Salem, Crazy Legs Conti. Matt Stone, LA Beast and more. (Is this the first project with both MLE and non-MLE competitors? The only other one I can think of the Amazing Race team of Joey Chestnut and retired Tim Janus.)
Miki Sudo appears as a character in Bite the Bullet, a new game for the Steam platform by Mega Cat Studios. I think she is the first competitive eater to appear in a video game since the official MLE game was ported to iPhone in 2012.
