The Washington Post profiles Juliet Lee

The Washington Post has an long article and gallery about Juliet Lee and her family which mentions her next competition:

Right now she is getting ready for her next major event, a meatball-eating contest in Vegas on Nov. 8. Only Lee pointedly says she is not getting ready. She doesn’t do test runs or drink stomach-stretching amounts of water or train in any way for an eating outing. “If I ever start training, they going to be really scared of me,” she says.

To which her competitors respond: “She’s lying. Everybody who’s semi-decent in this sport trains in some way,” says Tim “Gravy” Brown, a 205-pound Chicago eater ranked ninth in the world. “You can’t just show up and eat 60 hotdogs.”

The Washington Post’s 2005 article about Sonya Thomas is also available.

update Oct 13 A transcript of a Washington Post chat session with JulietLee is available.
