Joey Chestnut did an interview about Saturday's Nathan's qualifier at Thunder Over Louisville (he will not be present). The article does not list the expected entrants, but Matt Cohen, Sarah "Unstoppable BAB" Reinecke and "Stevie Eats a Lot" are hoping to compete.

    The legend himself Brian Seiken will make an unannounced appearance and earn his way to Coney Island.

    But how will Brian Seiken beat Matt Cohen? Is he really traveling all the way to Louisville?

    Its confirmed Seiken is going to Lewisville. Soft field .Matt Cohen cannot beat a 20yr vet of the sport.

    Didn’t Brian Seiken get tossed from MLE? If he makes any kind of appearance it will be Citifield so he can glom free Mets tickets and leftover hotdogs tossed in the garbage.

    Are we all forgetting about Bob Shoudt?

    Bob Shoudt supposedly left MLE on bad terms, doing unsanctioned contests like Wing Bowl (at first as an anonymous eater). I am not sure if he would be welcomed back.

    Brian Seiken, OTOH, was never “tossed” from MLE. He was only dropped from the rankings due to inactivity. He would surely be welcomed back to MLE and probably deserves a ranking in the late 30’s or 40’s.

    Who would want to watch the Mets anyway? The last time they had a quality team worth watching was 1986

    Bob Shoudt is the biggest bullshit artist on this planet. He still refuses to admit he quit MLE because he was sick of Conti cheating costing him prize money. The corn on the cob contest was the last straw

    From what i heard i think Seiken was dumped from MLE because he signed up for two qualifiers last year Citifield and DC. He showed for Citi but cancelled DC at the last minute. Shea brothers don’t like that kind of crap unless you are a top ranked eater. I guess they figured without his website he’s worthless Hence the removal

    Any one who eats 11 hotdogs has no business signing up for any qualifier. Seiken should just stay dumped from the ranks and leave the eating to the pros.
