    Congratulations to Molly. To keep pace with, to tie Kobayashi is an amazing achievement. Only Joey has accomplished this in the past.

    To defend one of these comments about eaters not helping, I think me or anybody would have been glad to help him, but in the pandemonium of the contest everything is just white noise. I had no idea what happened until after. I’m really glad he was alright!
