Defending hot dog eating champion sets new record

It is the most glamorous and glorified event on the professional eating circuit.

Chestnut took home the Mustard Belt after downing 74 franks and buns in 10 minutes - two more than he did a year ago. This year's championship will be held July 4 and televised on the ESPN family of networks.

There are two competitions scheduled for the day, one for women and one for men, and both will air live-though the women's is only available online. The remainder of the $40,000 prize purse was divided between the runners up in the men's and women's sections. It is the victory and the accomplishment that means the most to its participants.

Sudo, 32, fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed past year. The winners in 2017 were Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo.

Chestnut, 34, of San Jose, Calif., pulled away from the competition Wednesday by the mid-way mark of the 10-minute contest to win yet again.

A Las Vegas woman has consumed 37 hot dogs to win her fifth straight title in the women's side of the annual July 4 contest.

Since the first recorded contest in 1972, a total of 1,509 Nathan's Famous beef hot dogs have been eaten by participants.

The men's competition also included a Jersey face, in Newark resident Carmen Cincotti, the no. 2-ranked competitive eater by Major League Eating.

Lee said that some people are better at competitive eating than others, no matter how much they train. Apparently the counters had missed a couple of plates' worth of hot dogs, putting his number 10 higher than initially reported. The only difference about this win is that Joey beat his 72-dog record from past year. 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!

In 2016, Chestnut regained his title, eating 70 hot dogs.
