What is Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest?
An annual American hot dog eating competition is called the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Every year on July 4th, it is celebrated in the original and most well-known Nathan’s Famous restaurant, located in Brooklyn’s Coney Island area near the intersection of Surf and Stillwell Avenues.
Due to the fame of Takeru “The Tsunami” Kobayashi and Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, the competition has recently attracted more public attention. Chestnut, the reigning male champion, consumed 63 hot dogs during the 2022 competition. Miki Sudo, the reigning women’s champion, consumed 40 hot dogs in 2022. Since around 1972, the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest has been conducted annually in its original location on Coney Island, generally celebrating Independence Day.  To settle a dispute over who was the most patriotic, four immigrants are said to have organized a hot dog eating contest at Nathan’s Famous stand on Coney Island on July 4, 1916, according to Nathan’s promoter Mortimer “Morty” Matz. He added that the tournament has always been held annually, except in 1941 (“as a protest against the war in Europe”) and 1971. (As a protest to political unrest in the U.S.). Despite conflicting reports from different sources, there are rumors that Jim Mullen is one of the contest’s finalists.
2022 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest
The men’s competition begins at noon ET, while the women’s tournament starts at 10:45 a.m. ET. Consume as many hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes to win the competition. The men’s tournament is without a doubt won by Joey Chestnut, as it has done for the past fifteen years. Chestnut alone has lost once from his first triumph in 2007 and he appears to be getting better. By consuming more than 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes the previous year, he broke the record he had established in 2020, beating it by one. Chestnut was never a better athlete in a single sport if you want to think of eating hot dogs as a sport and the competitors as athletes. The man is depicted in a way that defies belief, and the host, George Shea, has claimed that he’s not human.
While Chestnut is the featured name, a legend is making a comeback in the women’s competition in 2022. After missing the competition in 2021 due to pregnancy, Miki Sudo is back. With 48.5 hot dogs with buns, Sudo presently holds the female world record and has won seven of the last eight competitions. In all honesty, Michele Lasco, who took home the award with a score of 30.25 last year, won because Sudo chose not to compete. It is inconceivable that anyone from outside of Sudo will challenge the women’s draw.
