While most 19-year-olds are busy fidgeting with their internet phones and saying “whatever” to everything, Darrien Thomas is busy forging a name for himself among the ranks of Major League Eating. This former Smoke’s Poutinerie Amateur Poutine Eating Champion of Canada And The World is already the #1-ranked eater in Canada. That Canada is a large nation only amplifies this achievement. To date, Thomas has stared down croquetas in Miami, FL; cheese curds in Milwaukee, WI; pizza in his home province of Ontario; sweet corn in West Palm Beach, FL; and Nathan’s Famous hot dogs and buns in Ohio and in Virginia. This young man is active, keen and on the rise. We look forward to his growth and development as an eater and as a citizen of the world.
