    Shows how dumb you are OJ – Bob Shoudt was not even there. Also you got the prize amounts wrong.

    I heard Mencheati was outside before the contest trying to sell scalped tickets.

    4:30 pm OJ has made corrections, even credited people. You will not be credited for anything with your insults. What’s the point? Make you feel good about yourself? Let’s thank OJ for his forever dedication. Thank you OJ for keeping us informed and letting us comment.

    Of course u failed to mention that I was there also, providing my usual comic relief. What’s even funnier is how the two bit ticket scalper sent this message recently to my facebook friends:
    > Hey.
    I feel that it is becoming necessary to give people a heads up about Jo Rose. About 10 years ago when I started accepting friend requests from eaters, I got a real bad feeling about this guy. His Facebook page was way over the top sadistic. Then he started stalking one of the female eaters. I might be wrong, but I think he actually broke into her house and had weapons on him. But I’m guessing he just got out of jail and is back on Facebook. Last Sunday I got notifications that he’s trolling my posts from as far back as a year ago. I also got a friend request from a fake profile the same day. So I’m pretty sure he’s also Mary Levin. Spread the word to be careful about this guy please. < Anyone who believed his lies & blocked me or unfriended me can jump in the same pile of petty poop as him. I think his fat, ugly wife divorcing him has sent him over the edge. When even a beast like that doesn't want u it must be maddening! Similar damaging messages were sent by Larell Marie Mele, who claims to love Jesus but is not above spreading hate & lies. I'm probably wasting my time writing this because OJ will post anything except the truth. IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN

    we need more comments like this from Gavoone to add some levity to this site. It used to be fun when the insulting vile comments were an everyday occurance on this site but lately its been boring as hell reading all the good luck and nice comments posted by boring kiss ass assholes

    I did not send that. At least not recently. Even if 5 yrs or more back, it doesn’t sound like my writing. A large part of the sentiment was true.

    It was nice to co-exist in such a small area. Maybe being in such close proximity at Dumplings, softened us to each other. I actually thought about taking a picture with him. If I did, I probably would have posted it on FB with the caption ‘Me and my stalker’. Maybe next time.

    that comment would be better suited for Gavonne and Jill if they took a pic together

    I am friends with a lot of competitive eaters & many of them have confirmed they received the same message as well as ones from Mele & Seiken. In fact Seiken was thrown off of facebook for those reasons, as ungentleman joe will be soon. Expect him to resurface under a phony name as Seiken, or Brian Taylor, the fake name he uses, has. Social media’s new community standards are designed to get rid of these pathetic haters & it seems to be working.

    Mr Gavonne do you have an income to support yourself? Are you working or does your disability prevent you from working?

    It’s funny how Menchetti calls Gavone his stalker. All the evidence seems to point to the fact that G-Joe is the stalker.

    Gavonne do you still have the tape of the phone call where you called 911 because Arnie Chapman threatened to tear you apart limb from limb if you showed up at one of his contests ? I could just imagine the look on the detectives face when you told them your life was threatened by a competitive eater

    any contest within the tri state region you can expect to see Gavonne there
