MLE invites "amateur" competitive eaters to participate alongside veteran eating champions in most of its events. MLE's online event application page is for applicants 18 years of age or older who fully acknowledge and understand the inherent dangers and risks associated with participating in an eating contest. Applicants further acknowledge and understand that the MLE/IFOCE coordinates with event sponsor(s) to select and approve eligible participants, and that the MLE/IFOCE shall decide, at its sole discretion, whether an applicant is eligible to participate in any eating event, and/or related activities. MLE/IFOCE may revoke an applicant's eligibility to participate in the eating contest, or related activities, at any time, for any reason, at its sole discretion. The MLE/IFOCE and the event sponsors reserve the right, at any time, to change any and all details concerning the event, including, time, duration, location and prize structure.
