The Fourth of July is here and so is Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest where grown men and women enjoy eating as many hot dogs as they can. Get all the details here!

Fans, Americans, and hot dog-lovers alike celebrated Chestnut's win and new world record.

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut extended his reign as champion eater at the Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest in the U.S., downing a record 74 wieners and buns in 10 minutes to take home the coveted Mustard Belt for an 11th time.

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut was no match for his 20 other competitors Wednesday as he choked down 74 hot dogs and buns for his 11th Mustard Belt at Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Chestnut has won 10 of the 11 Nathan's events.

Sudo has won the contest five years in a row. Carmon Cincotti was runner up with 63 dogs with Darron Breedon who followed behind with 43.

Women have been eating hot dogs on a competitive basis at the event since 2011.

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

This year, Shea stepped up to be better than ever, even going so far as getting into a rap battle with competitive eater and rapper Eric "Badlands" Booker. But, we're sure Miki is not anxious about that as both she and Joey get to take home $10,000 for their big win! Now, it's safe to say these two won't be craving hot dogs anytime soon.

That's testimony to the grip that hot dog eating has on the United States, especially on July 4.

However, Sudo displayed her prowess by eating 41 hot dogs and buns previous year, and remains a heavy -550 favorite against the field to successfully defend her title Wednesday afternoon. The 50-year-old has set 19 world records, and still holds the women's record at this event, set in 2012, when she consumed 45 hot dogs and buns.
