We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Magnify Credit Union World Ice Cream Eating Championship

This was possibly the most fun I’ve had on the circuit to date.

Yah, I ate 13.5 pints of ice cream for second place (and believe me, losing to Joey Chestnut, the best competitive eater in the world, isn’t a bad day), but…

Allow me to back up. 

My trip started with an overnight flight to Orlando with some of the BEST. PASSENGERS. EVER. You know those people that you dread sitting next to on a flight? They were the exact opposite.

Boring Flights + Happy People = Instant Best Friends

230a PST departure/ 11a EST arrival– they’re going hard; I’m exhausted.

Touch Down Orlando!

After driving from Orlando to Lakeland (about an hour), and after a brief nap, I met up with Joey and the 98.7 Out Of Bounds Crew for some pre-contest trash talking on the air 🙂

Friday Night with the Out of Bounds Cast

Contest Day!

Beautiful Lakeland!

Defending Champ Chestnut Setting Up

Ronnie “The Real American” Hartman

Starting off with 6 pints..

And We’re Off!

L-R: Sudo and Chestnut

I love ice cream just as much as the next girl, but eating pint after pint is rough! My core temperature dropped, and I was hesitant to drink too much (hot) liquid because I didn’t want to run out of room. It was my first time eating ice cream in contest, but all in all, I’m pretty pleased with my performance. Can’t wait for next year! I’m confident I’ll do better:)

Great job to everyone who battled it out on Saturday! 

Full Results

  • 1 Joey Chestnut 15 pints
2 Miki Sudo 13.5
  • 3T Ronnie Hartman 10.5 // 3T Michelle Lesco 10.5
  • 5 Brian Dudzinski 9.25
  • 6T Mike Jenkins 7.5 // 6T Bryan Weller 7.5
  • 8 Daniella Gioia 7.25
  • 9 Jason Smith 6
  • 10 Sean Brokert 4.5

It was great meeting everyone, especially Sean Brokert (thanks for the shirt!), Mike Jenkins, and  Brian D! Great job to my girl, Shell “WAYD” Lesco, and hats off to Chesnut as always. Props to Ronnie, Bryan, DG, and JS. Can’t wait to see more of you all on the circuit.

Gotta Run!

I cut it close for my flight (out of Orlando), but I made it! I also got blessed with the best seat neighbors again, which makes all the difference when you’re literally flying across the country. One works for the Weekly, and I’m pretty sure we were separated at birth.

Budweiser and Baseball Caps: Row 15 is Where It’s At.

Coming Up:

Next competition is in two weeks in Stockton, CA for the Deep-Fried Asparagus Festival. I ate ice cream  this week, so I’ve got to get my veggies now. All in balance.

Oh, and the next day, I’m eating corn on the cob in Florida. Can’t wait!…

About to Go Live (L-R: Chestnut, Sudo)

Huge thanks to the OOB Crew for their hospitality. See you next year!!…

Veggie Weekend (pt. 1) ! Fri. and Sat. in California.

Eat Your Veggies, Children.

In a typical 10-minute contest, we probably consume more ribs, wings, hot dogs (and whole bunch of stuff contrary to a disciplined diet) than the average American does in the entire year.

Thankfully, Major League Eating hosts the Stockton Deep-Fried Asparagus Eating Championship and the West Palm Beach Sweet Corn Eating Contest. Back-to-back, like, within 26 hours of each other. Obviously, I did both because… how do you turn that down?

Here’s how my trip started:

My awesome buddy (of 10 years!) hooked me up with a sweet room at Le Meridien.


15 hours to contest time: Dinner at Akiko

Normally, I wouldn’t eat this close to a contest, but there’s no way I was taking 1st or 2nd, and I’m still figuring out a way to turn down fresh fish. In all fairness, I was mostly eating sashimi . The pieces on the left are mine.

28 courses and way too much sake later, I retired to my room. Life is rough.

Contest Day: Good Morning, SF!

I woke up around 5am, and couldn’t get back to sleep.

It’s Go Time!

Stockton was unusually cold this year! Amazing contest, nonetheless.

I actually stopped somewhere in the 8th minute to watch Joey Chestnut and Matt Stonie demolish the world record. I knew they’d be out for blood, but it was crazy to see them best it by over 3 lbs. each. They’re def ranked 1st and 2nd for a reason

Full Results:

1st 12.5469lbs $1,500.00 Joey Chestnut

2nd 12.375lbs $750.00 Matt Stonie

3rd 7.25lbs $500.00 Miki Sudo

4th 5.25lbs Steve Hendry

5th 2.5lbs Chad Cole
