In competitive eating, the highest ranked eaters are placed in the middle of the table on the stage. Lower ranks populate the ends of the table.
Guys like Joey and Pat sit in the middle of the table, center stage. A guy like me who is just a mortal eater is called a table ender.
An individual that doesn't bring much to the table. Often times, this is a person that works a dead end job and does not have much motivation. This person tends to be overly dramatic and moody in social situations as there isn't anything else in their pathetic life. Low Enders often tend to cluster together.
John: I thought you were going to head out with Ali and her friends this weekend?
Mike: No way dude, they're all a bunch of low enders. I'm not going to waste my time with those low lifes.
