Nathan's Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest to Air Live July 4 on ESPN2

Some of the world's best competitive eaters will be at Coney Island July 4 for the annual Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Reigning champions Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo are the winners of the 2018 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contests. "And then once I feel like the food has moved and digested, I'll have one good day of protein, whether it's fish or turkey, maybe chicken". On the men's side, Chesnutt ate more than 10 complete hot dogs than his closest competitor. After review, he had eaten 64 hot dogs and buns, not 45. The sport (though some critics refuse to acknowledge competitive eating as a sport), really came to a head when Takeru Kobayashi set a new standard in the event in 1997 after eating 50 hot dogs in the 10-minute span.

On the Fourth of July, while you were relaxing and eating hot dogs, there was someone working very hard and eating hot dogs-74, to be precise.

Thousands of attendees, many donning mustard-coloured hot dog caps, braved 28 degree Celsius temperatures to witness the annual July Fourth competition on the Coney Island boardwalk. Chestnut and Sudo each took home the coveted mustard belt and $10,000 for their eating prowess.

Stonie has beaten Chestnut before at this event, eating his way to victory in 2015 by consuming 62 hot dogs and buns, ending Chestnut's eight-year championship run at the tournament.

Joey Chestnut proved it again: He's second to bun.

Both Chestnut and Sudo walked away in first place previous year as well. Thomas, who won this event three years in a row from 2011 to 2013, is a +300 underdog to knock off Sudo in head-to-head wagering. The July Fourth competition has been held annually since 1972, when the first official competition was recorded. However, first he'll have to battle out last year's runner-up Carmen Cincotti, who scarfed down 60 in 2017.
