At Hot Dog Competition!!!

Current women's champion Miki Sudo left of Las Vegas and challenger Michelle Lesco of Tuscon Ariz. feed each other a hot dog Monday

Chestnut, the reigning champion, devoured 72 hot dogs during the 10-minute race, breaking the previous record of 70 that he set a year ago.

Joey Chestnut was defeated once, but it doesn't seem as though he's about to let it happen again.

This is how Chestnut was delivered to the stage - an entrance befitting of a hot dog-eating legend.

And true to form, "Joey the jaws" did not disappoint!

The contest is now an annual event that millions tune in to watch every year on Independence Day. Well, let's just say he sealed the "five-peat" on Tuesday, judging the dog eating for Sudo and Chestnut, after judging for both of their wins in 2016, and on Stonie's win in 2015.

In the women's contest, Miki Sudo (MIHK'-ee SOO'-doh) won her fourth yellow mustard belt. That year, Stonie consumed 62 hot dogs and Chestnut went back to the drawing board.

Eating contests have become popular in the United States and various forms are held across the country throughout the year. "I said, 'Sure, that's no problem". Sonya Thomas holds the record for women with 45 hots dogs eaten in 10 minutes in 2012.

Meanwhile, for those who find this sort of hot dog overindulgence objectionable, you're not alone.

Many people wore hot dog-shaped foam hats and held signs with messages like "Bun Stuff" to cheer for the eaters.

On the women's side of the competition, the favorite is New York City native Miki Sudo.

Joey Chestnut set a new 4th of July record for hot dogs eaten at the Nathan's contest.

Rovtar told NJ Advance Media last week that friends and colleagues expressed "a lot of disbelief" at her venture into competitive eating.
