Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest: Time, livestream, how to watch

Chestnut managed to consume a record 74 dogs and buns in 10 minutes. The annual Coney Island competition has become a phenomenon over the years. Apparently the counters had missed a couple of plates' worth of hot dogs, putting his number 10 higher than initially reported.

Last year, competitive eater Miki Sudo ate 41 hot dogs and buns and will defend her championship this year.

Chestnut, 34, is an accomplished professional eater, having claimed victory 11 times out of 12 in Nathan's annual competition.

San Jose resident and competitive eater extraordinaire Joey Chestnut claimed victory again Wednesday at the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in NY, downing 74 franks in 10 minutes for a new world record.

Just in case you weren't in the hot dog eating spirit, preferring a quick, refreshing, cool snack, but with a twist, there was also a watermelon seed spitting contest. Both men and women are invited to participate, although they have to first make the cut in regional pre-event qualifying rounds. The July Fourth competition has been held annually since 1972, when the first official competition was recorded.

That smashes the record of 72 that he set previous year. There are 20 male and 20 female contestants, including the defending champ, Joey Chestnut, the winners of regional qualifiers, individual qualifiers and special invitees. Another name to keep an eye on is 24-year-old Carmen Cincotti, who gobbled down 60 hot dogs last year to finish second.

For many people around the nation, Fourth of July means freedom, barbecues, patriotism and Coney Island's Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.

"At the end of the day, Joey Chestnut came in here and ate 74 hot dogs, broke a world record", said Cincotti, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Wednesday. The Macy's spectacular takes place in New York City and some of the performers included in this year's event are Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton and the American Authors.
