    Who the hell cares. It was fixed. It was bullshit . They chose eaters based on a biased and undemocratic process.

    Also competing were Crazy Legs and Justin Mih, who had the lead but experienced a reversal in the last 1:30.

    Why would Tim eat ten pounds of noodles the day before Krystals? It seems like an incredibly poor decision.

    Results from Noodle Contest:
    Eater X: 10.5
    Wing Kong: 7.2
    Arturo: 6.56
    Shredder: 6.46
    Crazy Legs: 6.16
    Steakbellie: 5.74
    Pete Davekos: 4.95
    Justin Mih: DQ

    Noodles were Restaurant prepared and MUCH MUCH better than the instant Ramen I’ve been practicing with. While waiting the Noodles absorded all of the water and became alittle more slow. They were not over-salty. Justin was on the other end and I didnt see his DQ, but my son and a few others observed him in the lead for more than half of the contest.

    Tim was a gracious winner as always, but it’s my personal opinion he could have eaten much much more. I continue to be impressed.

    It was great to finally meet PrettyBoy Davekos, and always nice to see everybody else. WingKong is continuing the Creshendo he started in Vegas. Watchout for that guy.

    BOTH Ryan & Mike worked the Mike and they had a very funny banter for the crowd. The Nintendo people seemed very pleased and I heard them mention ‘next year’ more than once with excitement.

    Great job Wing Kong! Was wondering if the chopsticks were a factor in the performance of the eaters or did the contest end up being done without them?

    For some, compEATing the day before another contest would be a mistake. I’m sure X knows what he’s doing.

    I myself, like to get a “free” stretch before another event. But, that’s the only wat I do currently stretch my gut.

    Tim is not human, and needs food constantly to keep his cyborg powers at maximum strength…this will probably help, not hurt him. I will relay everyone’s concerns when I see him today!!

    Justin, almost great job!! I look forward to getting invited next year….maybe

    Why was Justin DQ’d? I’ll assume a reversal, but there are other reasons for a DQ. For instance, did he freak out from a sodium overdose during the final minute and go on a kicking and punching rampage? Those kinds of details are important.

    ideas on this topic last Thursday.
