    Rumor has it this was j webby’s fifth challenge on the day, and according to him, he kept all the food down.

    Only 6 male entrants , lol . This is what happens when you announce a contest 3 weeks in advance . Not enough time for people to alter there schedules . And James Webb said he wasn’t going to qualifiers, quess he changed his mind .

    Congrats to the man down under!

    After the contest, he left those hot dogs down under in a toilet somewhere.

    @11:13 I don’t know who’s invited and who isn’t, but i feel DC could be a weak showing based on CA

    The short notice time doesn’t explain the lack of ranked locals: Sergio Reyes Raya, Steve Hendry and Kelly Wong.

    We can probably assume the LeFevres have retired.

    Someone needs to get j webby some help. What this guy is doing is taking it to the extreme. He does not look healthy. He was doing a practice hot dog run every day for weeks leading up to this and also still doing challenges.

    Steve Hendry was in attendance to support us but is sitting out this year for personal reasons. Others were registered to compete but did not show up according to the MC.

    Bob ,who is that . I think the cost of food is troubling a lot of competitive eaters . Price of food is so high . LeFevre was a amazing eater and sincere.

    J Webby is the result of a social media environment that encourages and rewards rapid and consistent posting of content. As time has passed, we have seen people in CE getting more and more extreme in their eating behavior in order to game that system and make more money. Joel, Raina and now J Webby. It’s a matter of time before someone gets really sick or worse as a result of attempting to monetize extreme eating behaviors.

    Webb is better than almost all of you. MLE is under contract with espn to promote Nathan’s a Chinese owned company and celebrate our independence. What a joke on America and you all know it. Come on ESPN drop them

    9:05 , Joel and Raina are youtubers and that’s it . James Webb is competing in MLE sanctioned eating competitions. MLE let’s reg world find who the best eater is . It’s about competition and bettering yourself. It’s not about the money . Youtubers are just in it for the money . I’m taking about the non MLE youtubers .

    J webby has done like 400 food challenges in a year. IN A YEAR. Look at this guy from his first challenge to now. He’s meager and sickly looking. He needs to stop before he does some serious damage. Same with Joel and Raina.

    Webb doesn’t make money from socials. He has less than 5k subscribers on YT and Australian tiktok isn’t monetised and has no “creator fund” opportunities. The amount of hate for some guy taking up hobby with something you all follow with interest during covid lockdown astounds me. If he was a yank I’m sure your tune would be different

    I was very impressed with James Webb’s 42 hotdogs . Let’s see James if you can hit 50 on July 4 .

    OZFoodGuy the reason he is disliked is because he faked his big mac video as well as others. We know an electric person who does the same and he is disliked as well. So there is no difference.

    Webb even makes Raina and her snarl toothed grin look good. He looks absolutely emaciated in the face .

    Anonymous @ 11:31 pm – I hadn’t seen that video, just looked up the Live replay on YT.

    Wasn’t this just a live for LOLs? Looks like a company sponsored him to do it? I don’t get it.

    I don’t think Erik even eats a bite of food any more in his videos… it’s crazy to think that people think his videos Are real when they are so edited. Where is this Big Mac video? Raina faked hers too… tried to do Erik editing and failed. what’s up with people and big Mac’s?

    @ozfoodguy he uses the bathroom on the larger challenges during the challenge. So in all reality he is saying he is breaking records when he isn’t legitimately doing it. I will say Jweb you do have talent and I have no hate for you, just disappointed that you decided to fake some of your YouTube videos. If you’re willing to fake videos then what type of person are you deep down?

    James is a great guy who has proven himself on the table. Regardless, he’s earned his spot on the table.

    There was no faking , there was no claim of breaking records … I was making lockdown fun .. it was a challenge whilst being stuck at home .. sitting and eating for two hours .. I needed to Pee..
    Take it as you wish ..and judge me how ever you want ..I dont really care because I know what I’m about… and regardless..there is no hiding on stage..so you can judge me at the contest appearances

    James pukes every challenge and lies about it. You’re fooling no one. Also your pee break was a puke break.

    How are they fake if they’re on Live???

    I don’t understand what your issue is. He literally posts the live replay of every challenge. What is he faking?? That he went to the toilet?? He says it on the live.

    Im so confused.

    Also the guy just debuted at #10 in the MLE., I don’t think he cares about some lockdown home challenges he did when he was bored and starting out. His recent MLE contests are enough to gain him some respect surely.

    You can easily puke all of your food out in the bathroom then continue a challenge. How do you not understand that simple concept. It’s why most restaurants don’t allow a bathroom breaks during a challenge……. There is no denying him having a tremendous amount of talent I can appreciate that, but respect for food challenges with bathroom breaks no respect for that IMO
