    Gotta respect Kobe. But those were some small balls of meat.

    wow! that certainly wasn’t an MLE event. It looked more like an AICE event. What is Takeru dong? is he going to be banned from MLE events?

    It wasn’t publicized to speak of. Apparently, the event was meant to be more private than public, for whatever reason.

    Using my powers of deduction, it is clear from the signage written in Japanese and the announcers speaking in Japanese that this show was likely filmed for a Japanese TV show.

    How much money are the Sheas paying Ryan Nerz to operate this website or is this a hobby of his own?

    IFOCE.com is featuring the AC nathans qualifier from last year . Note a few things. During the fast paced interviews Beautiful Brian credits other eaters by name when the rest of them dont even acknowledge the fact that he exists. Real class act especially Pat from Moonachie and US Male whom he refers to as great eaters and they mention nothing about him being a formidable opponent. Please dont excuse yourself with the copout that they did but MLE edited it out . What does it tell you about someone that memorizes the exact amt of crawfish he claims to have consumed 4.99 lbs in 12 min or whatever . Normally you round it off to the nearest pound but he has it down to the centimeter 4.99 It proves that all he cares about are his stats. Do you think eaters like Joey, Pat , Badlands just to name a few know or care about the exact amts of there consumption from previous contests?

    funny that brian is the only person who cares and has to mention under anonymous that nobody says his name.moonachie and male are not great eaters but brian is certainly no formidable opponent to anybody. let the facts speak for themselves.
