La Costeña "Feel the Heat" Jalapeño Eating Challenge (Chicago 9/13):

Attendees were certainly treated to a heated finish. In the sudden death match, (last year’s champ) Pat “Deep Dish” Bertoletti felt the sting of Sonya "The Black Widow” Thomas. She bested him by 10 peppers (eating a total of 250), and setting a new tournament record. Rounding out 3rd place was Eric “Badlands” Booker with 158.

Krystal Square Off VI Qualifer (Birmingham 9/12):

Badlands fared much better in the burger category. He downed a whopping 26 Krystals and 5 big angus burgers to earn 51 Krystal points. This puts Booker in prime position for the final eat-off on September 27th. Erik Unger placed second with 42 pts.

Kings Island Skyline Chili Spaghetti Eating Championship (Ohio 9/7):

Humble Bob wasn’t so Humble when he bested (hotdog eating legend) Joey Chestnut by 1 lb. Bob’s grand total of 13lbs 9.2oz of pasta netted him $2,500. Joey walked away with $1500.

Five Spot's Famous Philly CheeseSteak Fest (Brooklyn 9/6):

Juliet Lee sliced up the competition wolfing down 4.33 sandwiches. She earned $600. Pat Philbin placed 2nd, while Micah Collins took third place honors.
