Geoffrey Esper is a quiet man who says very little but eats very much. At the time of writing, Mr Esper is something of a mystery and MLE is not discounting anything. For example, if it turned out that Mr Esper was an equine enthusiast who had represented this great nation at the Beijing Olympics in dressage we would not be surprised. Maybe he is building a perpetual motion machine in his basement. Maybe he sings opera. Nothing is off the table. Nothing.

This we know: Dude can eat. In his MLE debut at the CitiField qualifier for the 2015 Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest, he ate 30 hot dogs and buns in 10 mins. Two weeks later in Rochester, NH, he ate 30.5 hot dogs and buns for the win. At the 2015 Championship Finals, he ate 29.5. That's a one-dog and bun standard deviation across three contests. Dude can eat. And dude is consistent.
