  • Ten-time and defending Nathan's Famous Men's Champion Joey Chestnut center participates in Nathan's Famous International Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest weigh-in at the Empire State Building on Tuesday

The 19-woman field includes record-holder Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas.

Miki Sudo celebrates after winning the women's annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4, 2018 in Coney Island. In the 2012 competition, she ate 45 hot dogs. His 2017 record was 72 dogs and buns.

This year's competition also featured New Orleans' Adrian "The Rabbit" Morgan, who is the seventh-ranked competitive eater worldwide.

On the Fourth of July, while you were relaxing and eating hot dogs, there was someone working very hard and eating hot dogs-74, to be precise.

In one of the most disgustingly incredible feats in sports, the 34-year-old Chestnut will be going for an unreal 11th title in 12 years at the annual Coney Island consumption competition. Winners receive glory and the famed "Mustard Belt", but also a monetary prize: "first place gets $10,000, second place $5,000, and so on".

The judges originally counted 64 hot dogs, but it was later revealed that an entire plate wasn't counted.

But everyone was vying for the title of hot dog eating champion at the July 4th Spectacular in downtown Baton Rouge, hosted by the USS Kidd Veterans and Memorial Museum.

This afternoon in New York, Joey Chesnutt was once again crowned the victor of the Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest. Not only was a world record set, but the betting community was flipped on its head.

"I doubt we can put a microchip in the tongue or in the esophagus", Shea said.

Sudo was five behind her effort previous year she but has won five of the eight competitions since a separate women's division was created in 2011. He continued to stretch the lead down the stretch, though at a slower pace, finishing with 74 hot dogs, a dominant, 11-hot-dog-and-bun margin over second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti.

This year's was a scorcher: Temperatures hovered near 90 degrees when the parade began late Wednesday morning, and some marchers were treated for heat exhaustion and taken off the route.
