Hot Dog Eating Champion Trying For 70 Hot Dogs In 10 Minutes

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - It's not the 4th of July without a hot dog eating contest.

The annual Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest is happening Friday afternoon.

The goal is to eat as many hot dogs as possible in under 10 minutes. It sounds simple, until you realize how many hot dogs competitors actually scarf down.

Last year men's champion Joey Chestnut ate 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes. This year Chestnut is going for 70.


We'll let you know if he completed his challenge later on 6 News at 5.


Three-time defending champion Sonya Thomas lost her hot dog eating title Friday to Miki Sudo, who wolfed down 34 franks and buns in 10 minutes to win the women's division of the annual Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island.

Thomas, of Alexandria, Virginia, was only able to devour 27 3/4 hot dogs and buns.
