Rich LeFevre

Rich LeFevre

Rich LeFevre (nickname "The Locust") is a competitive eater from Henderson, Nevada (suburban Las Vegas). Rich and his wife, Carlene LeFevre, are said to form the "First Family of Competitive Eating" in spite of having normal weights and ages around 60, and are both top ranked members of the International Federation of Competitive Eating. The childless couple has combined to take two of the top seven places in Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in 2003, 2004, and 2005. He competed at Wing Bowl XIV in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in which he placed second behind Joey Chestnut, another IFOCE champion.

LeFevre was originally known as a superstar in the long game of competitive eating who didn't care for the short, eight- to 12-minute contests of the IFOCE. Since the earliest days of his career, LeFevre has excelled in longer, 30- to 45-minute events. However, the distance man has adapted recently, competing in the shorter contests and compiling an impressive list of victories. He has won several difficult contests and seems as comfortable with a short contest as most other eaters on the circuit.

He is known for his strong jaw and for his capacity, which seems to increase, not decrease, as a contest progresses. Previously considered an outsider in the competitive eating community, Lefevre embraced the formal eating circuit for the first time in 2002, participating in hot dogs, all-you-can-eat buffet and chili. Since then his prowess and reputation have grown.
