Yesterday, Robert McKinney uploaded a video the Gringo Bandito Chronic Taco Challenge held last month in Las Vegas. Carmen Cincotti noticed that Molly Schuyler's counter did not get updated after she finished a tray at 9:06 and at the 15:11 mark, Kobayashi had his tray swapped with a new one. Kobayashi says that the trays were recounted accurately after the contest. Molly Schuyler has yet to comment.

    I just don’t see this. At 9:01 she gets upped from 020 to 030, so how at 9:06 could she already be deserving 040? She was fiddling with trays (AFAICT) at about 8:55 for a couple of seconds.

    Haven’t spoken to Molly since before this contest, but she knew she was going to get jobbed. It’s his contest.
    But she now knows she can beat him in an honest contest. She thought it after Taco in a Bag and knows it now.

    Why does Maggie keep supporting Kobay by rigging this stuff? Pat won last year. I would put money on it. Pat was jilted too.

    Garbage. I wonder if they didn’t count the trays intentionally. Swapping trays? They are pre assembled. Why they swapping them out? Were they all not the same?

    Has anyone shared the information with the contest sponsors? Is it chronic tacos or gringo bandito ? This is a sham.

    There is a reason he only does his events. Because they are all fixed. You can’t lose if there is no possibility for it.

    I wonder if Molly will ever entertain eating with him again. I wonder why Pat does?

    If anyone of you are gullible enough to believe that Joey Chestnut can eat 70 hot dogs without being hollowed out or he taking some type of performance enhancing drugs, then you people are more naive than i thought you were

    Regarding Kobayashi eating after the contest ended, I am not concerned about this. It is common place in competitive eating to shove whatever is in you hands at time’s end, or a second or so past it. Not a big deal and all can do it. Judges don’t care, just as long as you’re still not using your hands live 5 seconds after.

    If you will also notice, Kobayashi didn’t start until a second or two after the countdown said “one”, whereas Molly did. Heck Matt Stonie is already touching the food at two or three seconds and starts as soon as he hears “one” on the countdown (thereby starting before “zero” technically).

    My point is Kobayashi may have used a second or two more at the end, but did not do so at the beginning. If that is your basis to say there was cheating, I do not feel that is good enough. Molly could have done the same. She also spent part of the last minute trying not to vomit, thus wasting time. That probably prevented her from wining above all else.

    And she also lost pretty badly to him at Taco in a Bag (although he did have the benefit of going last). So I would want to see more before saying things are rigged. A Kobayashi win at an event he has done before is no surprise.

    Who cares? Maybe the people that spend time and effort to train for the events, travel to them, and participate in them. Also the countless people that watch them and support the eaters. Think before posting next time.

    Kobayashi went last at taco in a bag because he wanted to see everyone else’s tactics. Regarding that game, Kobe also had multiple trial runs whereas everyone else went once. They had no trial and error attempts like a legit contest. Anything to make him look good.
    Oh and 4:12 is Maggie cleaning up for Him again as usual.

    Why are all of you upset that Miss piggy lost, she threw up in her hands .Even La Fever saw that..Also, a great hot dog eater does the same thing.

    So Molly had to “fake” a last-half-minute semi-reversal because she was too far ahead and it was fixed for Kobayashi? Is that the new conspiracy theory?

    A total disaster.

    Likes to pretend she is a PR pro.

    Likes to pretend she’s a pro translator.

    Likes to pretend that she’s dating a male interested in women, but he’s a ‘herbivore man’

    Anonymous 12:34 : I have been saying that for nearly 10 years. I was in IFOCE & I know for a fact the Sheas give the top eaters a combination of drugs to suppress their gag reflexes. Only an experienced prostitute can swallow like that without any drugs.

    The sheas are dirt bags but even they aren’t as bad as soon gavonne claims. Gavonne may have been in a few ifoce contests but he wasn’t an ifoce eater. Yeah I voted for Obama so yeah yeah I’m in his cabinet. Or Im voting for Trump so Ivankas having my child
