Hot dog eaters weigh-in for Nathan's Famous 2018 competition

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

Announcer George Shea points toward reigning champion Joey Chestnut during the men's competition at Wednesday's Nathan's Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest in New York's Coney Island. Competitor Carmen Cincotti was also credited with eating 45 hot dogs, until it was discovered that he had consumed 64. This year's championship will be held July 4 and televised on the ESPN family of networks.

Shea is now uncertain about what type of technology can be used to tally hot dogs and buns.

While Chestnut earned his victory in the men's competition, Miki Sudo likewise defended her crown in the women's competition, eating 37 hot dogs within the 10-minute timeframe.

Already laying claim to the title of world's best consumed of tubular "meat", Jaws won Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest for a insane 11th time, setting a new high mark of 74 hot dogs along the way - including the buns. There was some confusion regarding how many hot dogs Chestnut ate because one plate wasn't counted.

Competitive eating is a worldwide sport and Joey "Jaws" Chestnut is ranked number one. However, offshore sports books don't mind lining the action, as ESPN reports that Chestnut is a -700 favorite to win while the total hot dogs and buns consumed by the victor is set at an over/under of 70.5. Twenty-one men in all participated in the competition.
