    Congrats Molly–we all knew that 43.5 would no longer be the record as soon as you walked into the restaurant.

    Here’s something that I think would get a lot of media attention for you to do:

    On July 4, 2023–at the same exact time as the Coney Island /MLE contest begins, Live Stream you eating as many Official Nathans-sized hotdogs for 10 minutes in synchronization with the ESPN showing of Coney contest. You’d surely get at least second place–but I would tune in to see how close you could get to Joey.

    I think lots of people would check this out if it got enough promotion/social media attention in the weeks leading up to July 4th

    It wouldn’t be the first time a lanky, half shaved headed, mid 40s something with pink hair and a Hot Topic wardrobe tried to get attention like that.

    Kobi pulled that stunt, and and Joey just laughed at him.

    In complete honesty, eating Nathan’s in a separate event might get some media attention for Molly. Would it be worth it? How much negative attention and me-tooism would there be?

    Also you could eat American owned hot dogs instead of Nathan’s Chinese owned hot dogs

    “In complete honesty, eating Nathan’s in a separate event might get some media attention for Molly. Would it be worth it? How much negative attention and me-
    tooism would there be?”

    Exactly my point. It wouldn’t be me-tooism, moreso than anything else that is “me too” these days… Plus if it gets enough attention, it might put MLE on edge to start allowing more favorable contract terms with their eaters. If they are worried that one day they are not gonna be the only show in town, then they will be more lax in order to retain talent from leaving MLE to go indy (or, fingers crossed, a competing sanctioned league is created).

    I don’t think Kobayashi’s event was a success. He just wanted to show that he could beat Joey. Either join MLE or don’t.

    From 2012 to 2015, Kobayashi’s July 4 hot dog eating contests kept getting downscaled, then he only did July 4 charity exhibitions from 2016-2019.

    In case there’s any confusion, I meant “me-tooism” in the classical sense:

    noun. 1. the adopting of policies, methods, products, etc., similar or identical to those of a peer, rival, or competitor. 2. the practice of making a product, offering a service, etc., that attempts to duplicate one that is established.

    I never understood why they praise a girl that called in a terroristic threat on 9/11 as an American hero. She must have done some favors to people of higher power. Raina does favors. MLE never bent rules for anyone in media accept her and the King himself when he was drunk.

    I never could understand how you people celebrate Americas birthday of our country’s independence with a Chinese owned Nathan’s. If there is someone out there with a connection to an American owned hot dog company can you please consider taking this over. Our country is already over run by china. Let’s not give in

    11:44 Ramble much? Which personality showed up this time? Shouldn’t you be complaining to someone right now? This could be a competitive banter site…..maybe some congrats and light hearted trash talk. Instead people’s lack of self worth…..masked as false humility……but with a strange sense of “look at me, someone tell me how good I am or funny I am”……turns it into a garbage pail

    Nobody considers a lowlife troll on the internet or even the law as anyone that they should have to answer to. Get your own life and quit fantasizing over what you imagine others doing.
