2018 MLE head to head results excluding Nathan’s

Here are the head to head results for 2018 MLE contests excluding Nathan’s hot dog eating contests, which were excluded due to the women’s competitions distorting the rankings. (Juliet Lee, who only competed in Nathan’s contests in 2018, had the 4th highest winning percentage using all MLE contests). To be included in this comparison, entrants had to have at least two non-Nathan’s contests in 2018. The new poll asks who you think should be #3 in the next MLE ranking, Matt Stonie or Darron Breeden, assuming Carmen Cincotti is removed.

1 Carmen Cincotti (C Ci) 96.2% 25-1
2 Geoffrey Esper (G Es) 95.1% 135-7
3 Joey “Jaws” Chestnut (J Ch) 93.1% 141-10-1
4 Matt “Megatoad” Stonie (M St) 84.2% 48-9
