Miyake Tomoko: Beautiful chicks eat a lot too, you know...
Well, this is old hat for those who are on top of things, but my life is quickly spiraling out of control and I have no excuses any more.
But one look at my tracker statistics and I see that a lot of people are still interested in champion hot dog gourmand and general food hoover Kobayashi Takeru. I don't get it, people. Why are you so interested in a people who eat like ducks for 12 minutes just to see how much they can stuff in their guts without retching or exploding?
Anyway, always being one who is willing shill to the masses, here's a tidbit via the excellent Japanprobe blog reporting on super food chomper Miss Miyake Tomoko. A groovy looking lass who is apparently at least one-third robot with hollow legs who can inhale food stuffs with the best of the competitive eating pros. (Oh! And did I mention that she's a looker?)
Here she is eating a fucking HUGE bowl of Ramen in a half hour or so!
And here she is eating a 3.3 kg (7.27525465 pounds) Okonomiyaki in just under 19 minutes!
You know, I love how they call her a 「食イドル」-- an 'eating Idol'.... What a thing to be famous for! She'll be known everywhere as an expensive date.
Anyway, there's a bunch more clips of her eating all sorts of foodstuffs up on-line. (And I just read that she was in NYC on Feb. 1st doing some eating and filming there. Somebody hide the big apple........... Sorry about that....)
Here's a link to Tomoko's blog.
