Joey Chestnut, Miki Sudo Win 2018 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contests

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

The defending champion consumed 74 franks and buns in just 10 minutes at the Independence Day event on New York's Coney Island.

The current reigning champion is Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, who a year ago devoured 72 hot dogs in under ten minutes, all-time record for the event.

In the distaff side, Miki Sudo outlasted 19 other competitors that included record-setter Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas to win her fifth consecutive women's title.

Is There an 'Ant-Man & The Wasp' End Credits Scene?
This movie does have some hints that provide links to Avengers 4 , with one of the fan theories being not so subtly confirmed. Ant-Man shrinks, entering the quantum realm via a "quantum tunnel", gathers the particles, and asks to get sized back up.

Judging errors cast widespread confusion over Joey "Jaws" Chestnut's record-setting 11th title at the annual Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest. CEO Eric Gatoff talks about how the company is celebrating a century of feeding NY, how it keeps up with increased competition, and the right way to dress a hot dog. He surpassed his previous record of 72 past year. The annual Coney Island competition has become a phenomenon over the years.

Last year, 35,000 fans attended the hot dog eating contest and another 1.11 million watched on ESPN. This marks his 11th win in the last 12 years.

The undisputed king won his first Nathan's trophy in 2007 after eating 66 hot dogs and dethroning six-time defending champion Takeru Kobayashi. There was some confusion regarding how many hot dogs Chestnut ate because one plate wasn't counted. We're talking about an event as quintessentially American as they come: a hot dog eating contest.

Trump delaying NAFTA deal until after midterm elections
You know why? They're going to build their cars in America. "What's going to really happen is there's going to be no tax". It appears Trump, too, is not backing down.

The winners receive the famed "Mustard Belt", along with a monetary prize: first place gets $10,000, second place $5,000, and so on. Not only was a world record set, but the betting community was flipped on its head.

It's hard for those of us who don't see eating as a competitive sport to imagine just how the human body can perform such a feat, and manage to keep it all the food down. The 35-year-old Baton Rouge native won a spot in the contest after qualifying in Houston by eating 39 hot dogs. Sudo completed 37 hot dogs in 10 minutes to walk away with the victory.

European Union warns Trump: auto tariffs could lead to $300B retaliation
The Australian dollar slumped almost 1 per cent overnight to a low of 73.1 as the greenback rose and amid ongoing trade tension. Farmers will pay dearly for 25 percent retaliatory tariffs on soybeans, which China plans to impose on Friday.
