@DeliFreshThrds thanks! I enjoy chicago italian beef sandwiches quite a bit. Or caviar and butter if I'm feeling extra classy

When someone says to you competitive eater what type of person do you imagine? Do you think of a beautiful woman or a model? Well then you haven’t seen Maria Edible, the model and former female competitive eater. I first learned about Maria on Yahoo! She was on an Eat Feat video showing everyone how to competitivly eat chicken wings.
I love that you would never expect her to be a competitive eater. She appears like a fun, tattooed beautiful girl who wants to show people not to judge anyone by their outside appearance or what they eat. She loves tattoos and enjoys a good meal. In 2011 she entered her 1st competitive eating hot dog contest. She competed for 2 years and has recently stopped competing this year. She is still modeling professionally. She works full time by day and models on the side. I asked her if she had any food related tattoos and she mentioned she has a half sleeve tribute to diner food on her arm.
When Maria Edible was competing professionally her personal sandwich bests were:
- 9 sandwiches in 10 min at the World Cheesesteak Eating Championship in Allentown, PA
- 7.5 sandwiches in 10 min at the TooJay’s World Class Corned Beef Eating Championship in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
I asked Maria again what her favorite sandwich was and she has a new favorite. She is no longer eating meat so she has some new favorites:
@DeliFreshThrds i had a smoked tofu banh mi sandwich the other day that was outta this world. New fave.
