The new poll asks on what channel you think the "Femme Fatale vs. Food" (and amateur males) reality show will be televised

    This show has already been done. Someone should tell the show’s producers that there’s this new thing called Google, and in the little search box on the site type in: “Sonya Thomas Competitive Eating.” There they will find that for nearly a decade, a women holds close to 30 world records, has beaten men twice and even three times her size, hundreds of times, all over the world.

    So, if the show doesn’t have the Black Widow as the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating,” it deserves to go on the local community access channel in between the “Farm Report” and “Edna’s Gardening Show.”

    I’ve often thought the same Anony 1:17; I just never stated it. I guess in this case ignorance conveniently relieves one of responsibility for acting on such knowledge.

    That’s weird, I wonder why this mystery woman doesn’t come up in google searches —- probably a tremendous oversight on my part.

    Please tell us where to find this skyrocketing female juggernaut of competitive eating, who’s taking the world by storm.

    Hey world watcher get your facts straight. Particularly, when saying disparaging remarks about the top woman eater in the world Sonya Thomas. That’s not my opinion those are facts supported by experts in the media, celebrities, and other sport stars. Since, you obviously don’t know much about competitive eating here are the facts.

    Sonya has eaten in China, England, Ireland, United States and Korea. Unfortunately, international travel can be difficult for competitive eating and Sonya has turned down offers from every continent except Antarctica. However, people from around the world often travel to the U.S. to compete against her. She does, when she can, do interviews and demos with international media who often call her as the recognized leading woman in competitive eating.

    Your claim of that Sonya is old news doesn’t make sense. This year she’s ranked 5th in the world (including men) moving up from 6th in the world last year. And this year, top five in money making. Does the “Femme Fatale” even have one record compared to Sonya’s 29? I don’t think so, since no one in the media has reported on it and no one knows who she is. Put the “Femme Fatale” in front of 18.5 pounds of grits, 250 Jalapenos, 11 pounds of Cheesecake, 47 dozen oysters, 65 eggs and I doubt the “Femme Fatale” could finish half of those amounts in less than hour, let alone 9 minutes, 10 minutes, and 6 minutes/40 seconds.

    This year the media named Sonya as one of the top-five women who can beat the men (the number one ranked woman was Billie Jean King — not bad company). Check it out, the story appeared on a small website called CNN. But if you don’t believe that Sonya’s the top woman eater — why not ask experts such as other eaters who have competed against her, start with Chestnut and Kobayashi. If you choose to go outside the competitive eating world you could also ask experts in the entertainment and sports worlds such as Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Ricky Henderson, John Travolta, Celine Dion, Ludacris, Randy Thomas, etc. If that doesn’t convince you, this year through their contests many top eating establishments have named Sonya as the top woman eater such as Nathan’s Hot Dogs, Acme Oysters, Krystal Hamburgers, and I could go on.

    Mark my words, the so called “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” would never go up against Sonya in any competition because Sonya would eat her alive. If Sonya’s old news as you claim, then the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” is no news.

    Hey World Watcher if you think you can promote your show by saying bad things about Sonya Thomas, back it up wih facts.

    Start by naming one world record that the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” has established. In fact why don’t you get the “Femme Fatale” take a shot at Sonya’s records — don’t worry you have plenty of food to choose from she has over 29 world records. If the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” has been eating and breaking world records, how come the only “Femme Fatales of Competitive Eating” that I saw IN competitive eating contests were Sonya and Juliet Lee. And, I guess the media missed out on this amazing record-breaking streak.

    I also like the fact that the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” is specifically calling for amateur eaters to go up against. I can’t wait for the the first show when the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” eats against a Cub Scout, a Pop Warner Football Player, and a Little Leaguer. I guess she is too scared to step up to the table against Kobayashi, Chestnut, Pat, Bob, Janus, Erik, Hoover, Brown, and Booker like Sonya did this year and for the last seven years?

    sonya is a has been . And cannot do interviews. all that you name is from one group . Ifoce or mle or what other made-up name they try to go by does not control the world records .and are not known overseas. .

    show us the clips of sonya overseas!!!! There are none . Only WLOCE has clips from contests overseas. And WLOCE is the only group with any good overseas press.

    Welcome to the new world of Competitive Eating .

    The Femme Fatale could be Gal Sone, but they probably want someone fluent in English for a show airing in the U.S. (assuming it is). I think this show could be fun to watch. I’d love to see some fat truckers get their asses handed to them at the buffet by a woman.

    I remember Sonya’s Harris Teeter commercial —- the advertisement for paper plates. She didn’t say one word, but her eating, body language and charm said volumes.

    I think I’d opt for that versus the Dale Boone version: loud, boisterous talk before his ass (and that of other WLOCE affiliates) is handed to him.

    The following conversation took place several months ago at Hollywood TV studio boardroom. Let’s just call the studio for clarity purposes “World Watcher Inc.:

    TV Exec #1: You know I’ve been seeing a lot of public interest in this tiny woman who can eat a lot of food. The public is fascinated by her. I think they call her the Blackwidow. How can we make some quick bucks from her story line.

    TV Exec #2: Why don’t we get some really pretty girl to eat against men on some sort of reality show?

    TV Exec #3: But I’ve seen those competitive eating contests and they’ve got this guy called Joey Chesthnut and some Japanese guy that can eat a ton of food. Our girl could get killed.

    TV Exec #2: No we won’t put our girl up against anyone with any eating talent. We’ll just put her up against a bunch of lameos that we select. In fact we we’ll pump up our girl’s mystique with lies and bullcrap that the public will actually think our girl is pretty good at eating. Hey, I’ve got an idea, let’s call our girl the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating.” The public are idiots they’ll buy just about anything we give them.

    Hey World Watcher (Or should we call you Spineless TV PR Guy). Okay, let’s not call Sonya’s mastery of eating records. Can your girl eat 18.5 pounds of grits? Can the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” eat 47 dozen oysters in 10 minutes? Can “Femme Wanna be of Competitive Eating” eat 250 jalapenos in 9 minutes? I could go on. How many pounds of food can the “Femme” eat? Why don’t you put her up against a pro and see how she does? I’ll bet she’s really pretty, and you think so little of the public that because she’s pretty that will acturally attract viewers even though she has no credibility in eating.

    Everybody with any love, association, or interest in competitive eating should trash this show relentlessly and boycott it. Anyone who has ever eaten competitively should also trash this show that takes the accomplishments made by so many and shrugs them off like garbage. IFOCE and any companies associated with the IFOCE should do the same. Let’s see how the TV show does with no sponsors, because that’s the only thing TV shills like the World Watcher understands. Once they can’t make money, they’ll toss the “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” to the curb so fast it will make your head spin.

    Sonya Can’t do interviews? Jay Leno thought it was a great interview with Sonya. But, I guess the “World Watcher” knows more about ratings than Leno, every major network, and cable news channel that Sonya has been interviewed on. I guess World Watcher knows more about TV presence than the advertising executives at the largest credit card company in the world. So, Sonya’s a has been? The “Femme Fatale of Competitive Eating” is a “Never Been.”

    World Watcher why don’t you announce who the “Femme” is so we can all have a big laugh? And, when reporters call real competitve eaters to follow up on your press release, real competitive eaters can expose the “Femme” for who she is — nothing. I hope the first call reporters make is to the Black Widow which they probably will because any reporter of any credibililty recognizes Sonya as the undisputed lead woman in competitive eating. If reporters don’t know that — when they google for sources they’ll sure find out. In fact, go talk to your girl in private, she’ll probably tell you that she wouldn’t go up against Sonya because frankly Sonya’s better than her.

    Hey World Watcher maybe you should of done some research before you started up a show about a subject you know nothing about.

    Seeing a fat guy eat a ton of food is news to no-one. Seeing Sonya do it makes a local TV News Clip go National. When ever she kicks my ass, friends from far locales email me to say they saw the clip on their local news station. I think she remains the number 2 most Marketable Eater behind Koby, but I would entertain arguments that she is actually number 1. Joey’s top 5. Tim and CLC are in there as well. I think Pat has great potential because of his like-ability and easy recognition.

    I know that will upset some of you. I still think Joeys the best Eater, but creating a spectacle relies on showing the public something that they did not expect possible. Her small stature multiplies the effect of seeing her eat such huge quantities.

    She is the best, and if they prop up any old Chick to do the job for this show, it will be a crime.

    Hey CLC mom why dont you come to BB defense when they slam him left and right on this website. It appears that when Sonya is dealt the short end of the stick you come to her defense faster than mommy running to the schoolyard when her child is threatened by a bunch of bullies. With the lame excuse that Sonya is fragile and weak and BB can defend himself is a weak copout. Looks can be quite decieving. Big people hurt inside the same way fragile people hurt outside.

    I can’t and won’t speak for Legs’ mom, but as much as I have a soft heart for BB (I think he’s a good guy.), he brings a lot of negativity upon himself. I visit his web site sometimes, but he can be very negative, and in his own admission/word … obnoxious. And, yes, he is a big boy!

    I do. When he feels hurt he goes on the offensive and bashes others who’ve done nothing to him. But I understand him. He means well, but his actions are hurtful; they breed ill will.

    “It wasn’t unheard of for a woman to excel in competitive eating, but it was rare. Donna “Belly Donna” Tellis, a plump, kind-hearted postal worker, was a fixture at several events until a reversal of fortune at the Glutton Bowl. (It was a foot-long, wasabi-filled sushi roll that did her in.)”
