A Tribute to Ed "Cookie" Jarvis [3/8/06]

This is Don Lerman, I first met Ed Jarvis at the Huntington Bens Matza Ball qualifier back in 2001. He walked in all 6 feet 400 lbs an imposing eater and was swallowing matza balls whole, all eyes were on him. He didn't win that contest but at the Manhattan qualifier I gave him some tips on my technique and the rest is history. We became friends from that contest on and I don’t think there's a day we haven't spoken on the phone or in person since. We kris crossed the country entering every Nathans regional in the spring of 2001. I was at the Glutton Bowl with him, trained for the ice cream, canoli, and hot dog contests with him and I'd like to share these pictures with you.

An Open Letter to my Fans [11/16/05]

This is Don Lerman, yesterday I lost the Krystal Contest. It wasn't a big margin but a loss none the less. I'm not a quitter and I intend to be the champion that my friends came to love and respect. Right now, as of today I decided to take a sabbatical from eating to lose weight and get my dental work in order.

To quote General McArthur "I SHALL RETURN!"

Thank You,
Don Lerman

An Open Letter To My Fans… [9/02/04]

Hello, this is Don “Moses” Lerman speaking! I just returned from the Nathan’s First Regional Qualifier at Saratoga Park, victorious! I’m four-for-five this year in first place wins. September 3rd, I’ll be going to Buffalo to compete in the U.S. Buffalo Wing Eating Championship and then I’m off to Tennessee for Krystol Hamburgers, followed by a return to Los Angeles, California for the Winchell Doughnut Final.

I’m overwhelmed by all the fan mail I’ve received and I just hired a staff of 25 people to help me with the large volume of mail. I will answer every letter, this is my promise! The fan is number one at all times and I will never forget that.

At this time, I’d like to introduce the President and Vice-President of the Don “Moses” Lerman Fan Club, Ryan Urban and Shana Urban.

Thank you!
Don “Moses” Lerman
