Defending champ Chestnut sets eating record with 74 hot dogs

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

It will also be interesting to see if Chestnut can break the record he set past year when he ate an astounding 72 hot dogs - buns included - in just 10 minutes.

However, Sudo displayed her prowess by eating 41 hot dogs and buns past year, and remains a heavy -550 favorite against the field to successfully defend her title Wednesday afternoon. Judges also miscounted the result for second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti, who was initially said to have eaten 45 hot dogs but had actually eaten 64.

A new world hot dog eating champion was crowned yesterday at the annual Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. On the men's side, reigning hot dog eating champion Joey Chestnut will see if he can defend his title this year. He'll try to hold off Matt Stonie, who handed Chestnut the one defeat in the middle of his dominant run back in 2015 by downing 62 hot dogs. However, previous year Miki achieved a personal best by eating 41 dogs. He gobbled up 10 more than the next-closest chomper in the annual Fourth of July throwdown. Or, if you're Tucson's Michelle Lesco, 28 of them.

Trump also tweeted on the topic two weeks ago saying he hoped OPEC would increase production in an effort to keep prices down. On Wednesday he tweeted that OPEC is "doing little to help, " adding that, "if anything, they are driving prices higher".

Sudo was a fan favorite, drawing big cheers from the crowd during her performance, which was slightly delayed after she requested new water to soak her buns. Chestnut marked a new world record set using his signature style of stuffing two frankfurters down his throat at a time.

The 2018 Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest will take place from 11 a.m. EST to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4.

Miki Sudo is seeking a fifth women's title in a row. But, we're sure Miki is not anxious about that as both she and Joey get to take home $10,000 for their big win! Five protesters were taken into custody for questioning and released.
