Quarantine expansion puts Nathan’s field in doubt

New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he is expanding the list of states whose residents must self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving in his state, which will apparently prevent Matt Stonie (CA), Gideon Oji (GA) and Michelle Lesco (AZ) from competing in the 2020 Nathan’s Finals if they cannot get an exemption. Earlier today, Rich Shea appeared to confirm that Michelle Lesco will not be able to compete. Joey Chestnut is already in New York, so he is not affected by the directive.

update MLE has announced Nick Wehry will replace Matt Stonie.

update July 1 George Chiger will replace Gideon Oji.

update July 1 #2 A press release lists Miki Sudo, Katie Prettyman and Larell Marie Mele as female competitors. Katie Prettyman does not think that Sarah Reinecke and Sophia DeVita will compete due to schedule conflicts.

update July 2 NJ.com reports Rene Rovtar will be the 4th female competitor.

update July 2 #2 Julie Goldberg will apparently complete the women’s field.

Matt Stonie appeared on Mornings with Maria (Bartiromo) on Fox Business today to talk about his youtube channel and recent Donut Day video. Neither his recent signing with Night Media nor the 2020 Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest were discussed.

Matt Stonie signs with Night Media

Business Insider reports that Matt Stonie has signed with Night Media for exclusive representation and will be managed by Nick Brotman. Other Night Media social media personalities are Mr. Beast and neekolul, famed for her “OK Boomer” video. Brotman intends to pivot his client away from YouTube:

“Matt has been someone I’ve had my eye on for a while as he’s been consistently doing crazy numbers for years,” Brotman told Business Insider. “After getting to know him it was a great match. He’s interested in branching out from just creating YouTube content, which aligns with our philosophy of creating larger businesses around our clients’ influence.”

We will see how this deal affects Matt’s relationship with Major League Eating. Expulsion from the top 50 has been the traditional indication that a signee has fallen afoul of the MLE contract. Matt currently remains ranked at #3.
