If you are looking for competitive eating content, "Swallow Your Pride", a documentary about Wing Bowl 13 (2005), can be viewed on youtube for free. The focus is Bill "El Wingador" Simmon's quest to retake the title from Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas. Bob Shoudt (then known as Humble Bob), Arnie "Chowhound" Chapman, Dave "Coondog" O'Karma, Hank "The Tank" Goldey and Augie "Yao Wing" Chung are also featured. Conflict between IFOCE (MLE) and AICE is a secondary theme of the film. At 30:45, AICE co-founders Chapman and O'Karma discuss their grievances.
