Las Vegas’ Miki Sudo wins 5th straight Nathan’s hot dog contest

As crowds donning hot dog hats packed Coney Island, Chestnut alternated between shoving two hot dogs and two buns into his mouth for the duration of the competition. "When I saw that I had a considerable lead, at one point by eight hot dogs, I said, it's fine, I'm done".

Chestnut, who made his debut at Coney Island in 2005, has won every Fourth of July hot dog eating contest at Nathan's Famous since 2007 with the exception of 2015, when he was upset by Matt Stonie.

A judge counts the plates of hot dogs Joey Chestnut, left, at the end of the men's competition. As for his insane digestive skills today, Chestnut said, "I found a vicious rhythm".

A total of US$40,000 in prize money was up for grabs, with the first-place winners taking home US$10,000 each. The sport (though some critics refuse to acknowledge competitive eating as a sport), really came to a head when Takeru Kobayashi set a new standard in the event in 1997 after eating 50 hot dogs in the 10-minute span.

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.

He does, however, think aspects of the current dispensation disadvantage the USA and would like to see changes. But Trump has reportedly said that foreign countries use the organization to " screw the United States ".

In the women's contest, Miki Sudo won her fifth title in a row. He kept up a pace of roughly seven hot dogs and buns per minute.

Nothing says the Fourth of July like barbecues, fireworks and Joey Chestnut winning the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Chestnut managed to consume a record 74 dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

Interest in the competition has grown in recent years thanks in large part to the rivalry of star eaters like Chestnut. 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!

Frank Dellarosa crossed an important threshold in 1991 when he polished down 21.5 hot dogs, becoming the first trencherman to eat 20 or more hot dogs at the event.
