Woman eats 37 hot dogs to win July 4 eating contest

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

The 2018 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is in the books.

The event attracts thousands of in-person spectators and is televised on ESPN. That said, Chestnut a year ago earned almost $139 for every hot dog he ate.

Eager to continue his dominance in the competition, Chestnut displayed a jaw-breaking eating endurance as he quickened the tempo by eating seven hot dogs in a minute.

The competitors eat hot dogs during the women's competition of the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest, Wednesday, July 4, 2018, in New York's Coney Island.

The 2018 Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest is nearly here and that means thousands will gather at Nathan's Famous hot dog restaurant in Coney Island to witness one of the most popular competitive eating competitions in the world on Independence Day. The women's contest officially begins at 11 a.m. EDT, and the men's event will follow it up at 12:30 p.m.

The contest has been held since 1972 and this year, constants are vying for $40,000 in prize money.




On the men's side, Chesnutt ate more than 10 complete hot dogs than his closest competitor.

Three years ago, Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie, 26, ended Chestnut's eight-year winning streak. But Chestnut has said he has capacity for even more. Her goal for the big day is ten; this will be her second year competing, and the first time joined by her daughter. Shea says they're considering tracking the weight of each plate, saying he doubts "we can put the microchip on the tongue or in the esophagus". "In order for us to do well, our bodies have to be really healthy, to be able to push ourselves this far and this hard", he further explained of the preparation.

NY native and defending champion Miki Sudo chomped down 37 hotdogs and buns, making her a five time victor of the women's contest. She'll be back for a fifth round this year.

In 2001, Kobayashi ate 50 hot dogs and buns - doubling the previous record. The men's competition is scheduled for noon and will be on ESPN2.
