Erik "The Red" Denmark
Seattle, WA
Age: 29
Weight: 208 pounds

Erik "the Red" Denmark, a golfer living in Seattle, embodies his
namesake's passionate hunger and also enjoys a similar respect - not
just from Greenlanders, but from all who have witnessed his tireless
determination at the competitive eating table. He boasts a tolerance for
hot and spicy fare, having performed in jalapeños, huevos rancheros, and
buffalo wings. In /Major League Eating: The Game/, Erik dominates the
competition when shrimp is involved, and is especially strong when it
comes to Spicy, a flaming belch of flames. He's most vulnerable to
Rotten Food.

*Records:*
Native American Fry Bread: 9.75 in 8 minutes
Shrimp: 4 lbs, 15 oz. Spot shrimp in 12 minutes
45 Krystal Burgers in 8 minutes
61 Hard-Boiled Eggs in 8 minutes

Richard "The Locust" LeFevre
Henderson, NV
Age: 63
Weight: 132

The Locust is known for a strong jaw, and stomach capacity that seems to
increase, not decrease, as a contest progresses. Previously considered
an outsider in the competitive eating community, LeFevre embraced the
formal eating circuit for the first time in 2002, participating in hot
dogs, all-you-can-eat buffet and chili. Since then his prowess and
reputation have grown. In /Major League Eating: The Game/, LeFevre
shines when confronted with Jalapeños or Spicy, but has difficulties
with Antacid.

*Records:*
Jalapeños: 247 in 8 minutes
Huevos Rancheros: 7.75 lbs in 10 minutes
SPAM: 6 lbs in 12 minutes
Chili: 1.5 Gallons in 10 minutes

Patrick "Deep Dish" Bertoletti
Chicago, IL
Age: 22
Weight: 190

Patrick Bertoletti is a gurgitating force of nature. He has beaten every
major eater, taking out two superstars at one chomp on October 9, 2007
with his victory over Takeru Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut in the Spike TV
televised Las Vegas chicken wing "Chowdown." Bertoletti considers
himself a sweet specialist but proven himself capable of claiming
victory regardless of food type. Some say the intimate knowledge of food
he carries as a recent culinary school graduate gives him an unfair
advantage. Others credit his habit of using the music of Irish punk band
Dropkick Murphys, channeled in via earphones, to maintain pace during
competitions. However, no one disputes his stature as true force of
nature in competitive eating and one of the greatest eaters of all time.
In /Major League Eating: The Game/, Bertoletti is strong in Pizza-eating
events and Mustard Gas, a dangerous gaseous cloud, but weak against
Invincible.

*Records:*
Grits: 21 lbs in 10 minutes
Waffles: 14.5 lbs in 10 minutes
Strawberry Shortcake: 15.25 lbs in 8 minutes
Ice Cream: 1.75 Gallons in 8 minutes

"El Toro" Jimenez
Las Vegas, NV
Age: 30
Weight: 187

El Toro has a big mouth, although it doesn't seem to serve him well in
competition. Fond of extravagant claims, personal attacks on other
eaters and all sorts of theatrics, he is usually at the bottom of the
pack at the end of any given contest. Other eaters see him as abrasive,
offensive, and void of talent. He does, however, contribute to the sport
by setting an example of what not do

*Records:*
6.66 lbs Cranberry Sauce in 8 minutes
10 Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs in 12 minutes
11 Bratwurst in 10 minutes
34 Hard-Boiled Eggs in 8 minutes
