Confusion Ensues As Man Sets World Record At Hot Dog Eating Contest

Confusion Ensues As Man Sets World Record At Hot Dog Eating Contest

Chestnut has dominated the contest for over a decade and is widely seen as the greatest competitive eater of all time, holding dozens of world records.

New Orleans competitive eater Adrian "The Rabbit" Morgan knew he'd have his work cut out for him if he was to win the annual Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest in Coney Island, New York. Or at least he swallowed them after dipping them in water. Chestnut marked a new world record set using his signature style of stuffing two frankfurters down his throat at a time. The rule remains the same and simple - eat as many hot dogs and buns as you can in 10 minutes to be declared the victor. The video is below, but be warned - it's hardly ASMR.

The 2018 Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest will broadcast live on ESPN beginning at 10:50 a.m. EST for the women's competition and 12 p.m. for the men's competition. If you miss it, don't worry, the men's event will also re-air at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Joey Chestnut, as he does every year, dominated Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest at Coney Island.

Chestnut previously told ESPN he was aiming for 75 hot dogs during Wednesday's contest.

The 6 GB variant now goes for CNY2,599 (less than $390/€340), so the more powerful one should be slightly higher than that. There's 128GB of internal storage with 24-megapixel + 16-megapixel dual camera unit, aligned horizontally at the back.


Miki Sudo held onto her title as the top women's competitor at the annual Brooklyn eat-off, chomping 37 franks and buns to take home the top prize for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year. Chestnut is the sport's all-time record holder and in 2016, he ate 73.5 hot dogs and in 2017, he consumed 72 hot dogs (with buns) in 10 minutes.

That's four shy of her total previous year.

What's the Fourth of July without a hot dog?

As for the critics and the naysayers, or for those who might get a bit nauseous at the idea of 74 hot dogs within 10 minutes, Shea encourages folks to give the spectacle a shot.
