Jackson Krystal video available

The video from the Jackson, MS Krystal qualifier is now available. The video shows what appears to be the start of Justin Mih’s reversal at the end of the contest, but Erik Denmark’s reaction to it has been edited out. Crazy Leg Conti had an impressive last second surge, eating four burgers in about the last ten seconds, which has been overlooked due to the contest controversy.

Erik the Red & “Tanker” on Justin Mih controversies

Erik “the Red” Denmark has a blog entry about his participation in the Jackson, MS Krystal qualifier and Justin Mih’s disqualification from it. The Hangman noted that somebody named “Tanker” from NYC wrote a forum post on the Krystal Square Off qualifier in Perry, GA claiming that Justin Mih should have been disqualified for dunking his buns too long. The contest video can be viewed at krystalsquareoff.com. The Hangman and Loren “Bubba” Yarbrough ate next to Justin Mih at that event.
