I think your videos and competing in more contests will get your name out there. It'll come. It just takes time. Unless you are Joey and then you can start beating people overnight.
Also you need to vote yourself. Like they always say in politics, "you can't complain unless you vote yourself."

What about a non-IFOCE eater's poll? Or, as it was called on EatFeats, "Picnic Style" rankings?

Actually, I wouldn't make the Top 25 on that, either. Hmmmm...maybe I'll just stick to voting in your MLE Eater's Poll and leaving comments, :o)
