    Blood doesn’t leave your brain because you’re eating. And places, even tv shows won’t make you keep going if you ask to stop. Way to lie about shit in an interview and make comp eating/challenge eating look even worse. Maybe stick to things you know like half naked pictures and records that don’t matter.

    Anon 1:54, you clearly know nothing about Japanese television. Every eater that has delt with a Japanese television show will tell you that Japanese television producers are pushy and demanding. It is totally believable that Leah was pressured to eat past her comfort zone.

    “Eat This Book” has a chapter about “Hungry” Charles Hardy passing out while facing off against Kaz Arai in a bento box eating contest in Japan in 2001.

    @1:16 that still doesn’t make oxygen rush to your stomach to make you pass out.

    Frankly Leah shouldn’t have mentioned anything about the Japanese TV show or passing out while doing a “challenge.” It casts everything in a horrible light. Why someone who passed out while doing an eating challenge would continue in this activity is equally senseless.
