  • DoppelgangerDDoppelgangerD Master Of Ceremonies United StatesPosts: 1,847 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    He lives in Texas, which is probably why he can eat so much moomoo.
    I think he just likes ribs and that contest was the perfect storm for him to win.
    He deserved it though. He ate twice as many ribs as everyone else. Tip of the hat to
