    The only eaters who make any real kind of money competing is Chestnut Sudo and Stonie. Chestnut is on the Sheas payroll. Stonie makes his millions on youtube. If Booker wasnt making money on youtube he be making shit with MLE regardless of the bones Shea brothers throw at him to rap on stage . Everyone else is wasting their time and money traveling for nothing gas hotel etc all for the love of the sport

    I agree with 808 if you wanna waste money on airfare or drive hundreds of miles to finish 5th just so you can shake Chestnut hand , go knock yourself out . He wouldnt do it

    Those mediocre eaters who would rather spend their hard earned
    money on traveling to a MLE contest than do some good in their own community think they are achieving some fame but they are fooling themselves because nobody cares except the saps with no life who follow this dreadful non-sport.

    Before the IFOCE came to be, the Shea brothers probably had a meeting realizing there is a market for a bunch of fat slobs and anorexic bulemics with serious holes in their lives . A perfect venue to make some serious money when corporate real estate is slow

    809, I Don’t think Esper and Breedon are wasting their time. They both seem to be doing just fine!

    If you want to consider yourself a sport like MLB NBA NFL then you need to account for how much money each and every player on your team is making .The few that love George Shea and his organization will fire back “its none of your biz” Ok agreed but on the flip side don’t refer to competitive eating as a sport because when you type in an individual player on Basketball Baseball etc etc , scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will find a chronological history of that player yearly salary since he started . Regardless of whether or not eaters ranked 2-50 total earnings are $0 it should be documented. If Joey Chestnut is drawing a salary it should be documented and not assumed . Remember we are talking salary not a database of contest prize money like OJ has on eatfeats.
