Major League Eating

While GWR ratifies a limited number of eating records of its own, Major League Eating (MLE) is the body that oversees professional eating contests globally. The organization developed the sport of competitive eating and coordinates the governing body, the International Federation of Competitive Eating; it also helps sponsors to develop, publicize and execute world-class eating events in all varieties of food disciplines. MLE holds approximately 70 events annually, including the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, NY. Original MLE content has aired on ESPN, MTV, the Travel Channel, Spike TV, Discovery and The Bio Channel, and the ESPN telecast of the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest has secured over a million live viewers for 10 consecutive years.
