Does Anyone Have Takeru Kobayashi’s Contact Information?

Hey all,

Hope everyone is doing well.

I thought I’d hop on real quick to see if any of you know how to get in touch with competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi. This is a bit urgent.

His personal website,, has an email address on the contact page for “messages and questions regarding any business opportunities.” I already wrote to it a few times yesterday and this morning, but haven’t received a reply. I’m not sure whether Kobayashi manages his own site, or if he has someone running it for him, but it’s important that I speak directly to Kobayashi himself.

I’ve also tried messaging his Twitter account, @FReeKobi0704, but I kind of doubt that’ll work. He has over 6,000 followers, so my messages might get lost in all the clutter.

If anyone knows Kobayashi’s personal email address, or, even better, his cell phone number, please enter it into this Google Form. Or, if you see Kobayashi at an eating challenge, I’d appreciate it if you let him know that President Barack Obama is trying to reach him. I’m really sorry to impose by asking this, but at this point, I feel like I’ve hit a wall in trying to contact Kobayashi.

Thanks a bunch!
