Confusion Ensues As Man Sets World Record At Hot Dog Eating Contest

Nathan's Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest to Air Live July 4 on ESPN2 Washington DC's record hot dog eater Juliet Lee shares secret of competitive eating | TheHill

The renowned competitive eater hailing from San Jose, California, took home the coveted Mustard Belt and surpassed the previous mark of 72 dogs and buns he downed a year ago.

On the women's side, Miki Sudo, 32, won her fifth women's title in a row, when she engulfed 37 hot dogs. The record for the women's contest, set by Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas in 2012, is 45 hot dogs.

Chestnut said he was "feeling good". "Joey said, 'Look at my plates, ' and Carmen said, 'Look at my plates.' We counted the plates that they had eaten and it was 64 and 74". This will be Joey's 11th mustard belt as he ate a whopping 74 hot dogs within the 10-minute timeframe.

She first got into the world of competitive eating after her daughters entered her in a local eating contest. After a brief judging dispute, it was revealed that Chestnut had eaten many more hot dogs than the running tally had indicated. Michelle Lesco took second with 28 hot dogs, and Juliet Lee came in third, eating 25 hot dogs.

Scoring at the event, which takes place on New York's Coney Island boardwalk every Fourth of July, has financial implications.

Crowds will flock to Coney Island on Wednesday to watch a time-honored holiday tradition: the Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest.

As for the critics and the naysayers, or for those who might get a bit nauseous at the idea of 74 hot dogs within 10 minutes, Shea encourages folks to give the spectacle a shot. There are 20 male and 20 female contestants, including the defending champ, Joey Chestnut, the winners of regional qualifiers, individual qualifiers and special invitees.

Eric Gonzalez, the Brooklyn district attorney, certified the final tally and Chestnut's record of 74, two more than he consumed past year.

Other events being broadcasted today, for the 4th of July holiday, include Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and A Capitol Fourth.
