On Monday, I’ll be competing in the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Competition. As you can see, becoming a competitive eater has not been pretty. Check out the essay I wrote for Salon on my journey from eating enthusiast to Bunnette to professional gorger.
And you can see more of my ugly eating faces tomorrow at 11:25 AM (EST) on ESPN3.com, which is streaming live video of the first-ever women’s division. They’ll also be showing highlights from the ladies’ contest during the noon hour on ESPN. I’ll do my best to suppress my gag reflex.
