Mary Bowers


Mary Bowers: fashionista, foodie, and female competitive eater. In 2012, Mary debuted on the Major League Eating ranking chart at #47 and since has climbed up to #38. That year she became the first-ever women’s wild card participant at Coney Island and secured a solid tenth place finish in the women’s division by eating 8.5 hot dogs in 10 minutes. A year later, on July 4, 2013, Mary ate 10 for a 7th place finish. To qualify for the 2014 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating contest, she finished 11.75, surpassing her previous totals.

When Mary is not eating competitively, she combines her passions by creating concepts for food-related promotional displays and photo shoots and donates her time to charitable causes, promoting nutrition education and hunger relief.
