For the first time in Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Contest History, a mother and daughter competed against each other. According to Major League Eating, the body that oversees professional eating contests, Chestnut once ate almost 13 pounds of deep-fried asparagus in 10 minutes and 55 glazed donuts in the same amount of time. "This was a lovely day". "After training, you get better, but if you can not eat, it doesn't matter how hard you train".

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut broke his own Coney Island record Wednesday to take the Mustard Belt for the third year in a row.

With 16 Nathan's champion titles between Sudo and Chestnut, we do have to wonder what's next.

Stonie has beaten Chestnut before at this event, eating his way to victory in 2015 by consuming 62 hot dogs and buns, ending Chestnut's eight-year championship run at the tournament. Judges peered below and Nathan's helpers stood by with paper plates loaded with more hotdogs.

Sudo pummeled 41 hot dogs as she dominated the women's event previous year. "You keep going", she said.

"In ten minutes, the world's top competitive eaters get to try to consume as many hot dogs as possible".

Major League Eating, the event's official organizing body, offers a total prize pool of $40,000, with $20,000 each dispersed in the men's and women's divisions.

In the women's competition, Sudo, a native New Yorker by way of Japan and Hawaii, accomplished her goal to "5-pete" the competition by gobbling 37 hot dogs and water-dipped buns in 10 minutes.

The Nathan's hot dog eating contest is held on the Fourth of July at the original Nathan's Hot Dog location at the corner of Surf and Stillwell avenues in Coney Island and has become one of New York's annual July 4th traditions.

Fan Martha Pleasant, 41, of Franklin, New Jersey, said she was attending the competitive eating competition to support her husband Dwight, who "loves wieners".

Last year, animal rights activists tried to unfold a banner amid the crowd.
