Can you believe this woman is single?

If you were to distill a half-ton of awesomeness into the frame of a 105-pound Asian woman, you would end up with Sonya Thomas, a.k.a. Sonya the Black Widow, a.k.a The One Eater, a.k.a 이선경.

Thomas, 37, is in the upper echelon of competitive eaters worldwide, bringing home 22 titles -- everything from the pedestrian (37 hot dogs in 12 minutes), to the astounding (7 3/4 pounds of turducken in 12 minutes), to the downright disgusting (65 hard boiled eggs in under seven minutes).

The legend grew last weekend, when she ate 60 ham biscuits to win a contest in Lynchburg, Va., besting some fat dude.

And today, she'll try to take down the world's best eater Takeru Kobayashi and hold off newcomer Joey Chestnut in the annual Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest on Coney Island.

It's hard to believe, but Thomas isn't married. I have a theory on this: When she goes out to dinner on a first date, she bankrupts her suitor and thus ends the relationship.
