At the time of writing, Josh Miller has competed in two MLE events for two paid podium finishes. Against elite fields at both The World Twinkie Eating Championship At Bally's Casino–Tunica and at the Western Days Festival World Tamale Eating Championship, Miller impressed seasoned onlookers with his smooth eating style. He ate 40 Twinkies to take 5th place and 42 tamales for 6th. His success was noted by fellow contestants, some of whom were heard to ask the MLE representative onsite, "Hey, who's that Josh guy from Denver?" At the time of writing, little is known about the man. To date, our beliefs about Josh Miller are based on external factors—how he looks, walks, dresses, acts, and the like. What do these things say about Josh Miller? And what do our assumptions say about us? Semioticians among the MLE community have been debating these issues at length. As is typical among critical theorists, however, they have achieved little by way of concrete findings, preferring to complain about how difficult it is to find a pack of Gauloises in Indianapolis during the Big 10 Championship weekend. We do not know Josh Miller's soul, no. But we do know that he is a youthful 30 years old, an all-American male who most impartial judges would regard as "handsome." He would not appear out of place on top of a tractor, on a baseball diamond or in a garage under a classic American muscle car, perhaps wearing a tight white Tshirt that has become stained with sweat and grease. He is also comfortable, as his early showings would indicate, at the MLE table.
