Second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti ate 64. “Electronic counters need to be brought into competitive eating. I love the sport, but today was a massive black eye,” ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted about the mistake. Nearly 60 Large Wildfires Are Burning in the Western U.S. Longtime announcer George Shea tells The Associated Press he noticed in real time that jurists measuring Chestnut’s and Cincotti’s intake weren’t counting from two plates stacked with franks that the eaters were drawing from. The under-counted tally was then displayed on live TV. Shea says both Chestnut and Cincotti were adamant about their scores, which were certified by Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez.
