Japanese-American retains NY women's hot dog eating title

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

It will also be interesting to see if Chestnut can break the record he set previous year when he ate an astounding 72 hot dogs - buns included - in just 10 minutes. Baton Rouge held a hot dog eating contest Wednesday, and no, the contestants weren't exactly pros.

What's a good Fourth of July celebration without a little friendly competition? Back then, victor Jason Schechter finished off 14 hot dogs to claim the title of champion, a fraction of what today's competitors manage to finish. Contest rules stipulate that both the bun and the frankfurter must be consumed in order to get the point. The champion eater, who once again won the coveted Mustard Yellow International Belt and a $10,000 cash prize, beat out Cincotti by a whopping 10 hot dogs after chowing down at a pace of about seven hot dogs and sopping wet buns per minute.

Ten-time and defending Nathan's Famous Men's Champion Joey Chestnut poses with 72 hot dogs during Nathan's Famous International Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest weigh-in at the Empire State Building on Tuesday, July 3, 2018, in NY.

Joey Chestnut is no stranger to competitive eating sports and today marked his 11th win at the Fourth of July hot dog eating contest.

And because hot dog eating is a sport, the event will be broadcast on ESPN 2 with the livestream at WatchESPN. With Chestnut going from 64 to 74, he hit the over on the betting line, flipping winners and losers in an instant.

Sudo said that the heat may have slowed her down in winning the women's competition.

The trophies and champion belts are on display on stage ahead of the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest, Wednesday, July 4, 2018, in New York's Coney Island. However, offshore sports books don't mind lining the action, as ESPN reports that Chestnut is a -700 favorite to win while the total hot dogs and buns consumed by the victor is set at an over/under of 70.5. Another name to keep an eye on is 24-year-old Carmen Cincotti, who gobbled down 60 hot dogs last year to finish second. He also has been in NY since last Thursday to get accustomed to the heatwave that's now plaguing the state.
