Here are some recent photos of competitive eater Miki Sudo for Mental Floss Magazine. The magazine decided to send her to one of the Las Vegas' local restaurants for the shoot. It was fascinating to hear all her stores about the many eating competitions she participates in around the country. My favorite part of the article is when they listed some of her stats she has achieved during her competitive eating career: 71 Twinkies in six minutes; 76 tamales in 10 minutes, 109 hard-boiled eggs in eight minutes, and 172 wings in 12 minutes.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
