Defending champion eats 74 hot dogs to set new record

And because hot dog eating is a sport, the event will be broadcast on ESPN 2 with the livestream at WatchESPN. Chestnut pulled a stunner previous year by eating 72 hot dogs in just 10 minutes. The only difference about this win is that Joey beat his 72-dog record from a year ago.

It turns out Chestnut didn't take down the 64 dogs as noted by the manual counter situated over his head during the competition.

But that wasn't enough competition for Scott, who was eating hot dogs three at a time, coming in as the clear victor after quickly eating a total of seven.

Thousands of attendees, many wearing mustard-colored hot dog caps, braved the heat to witness the annual July Fourth competition on the Coney Island boardwalk.

The Las Vegas competitor fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed a year ago but still beat out second-place finisher Michelle Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona.

"I doubt we can put the microchip on the tongue or in the esophagus", Shea said of tabulating the scores.

The only other woman to ever win the women's competition is Miki Sudo, whose personal Nathan's record is 41 hot dogs. Brooklyn district attorney Eric Gonzalez certified the final tally and Joey Chestnut's record of 74 hot dogs.

It's Chestnut's 11th time winning the competition. Sudo completed 37 hot dogs in 10 minutes to walk away with the victory. Thomas is referred to as the Black Widow, and in 2012 she finished more hot dogs than 10 of the 15 men who entered the men's contest.

René Rovtar, a school superintendent from New Jersey, and her daughter Kristina, an art teacher, are two members of the 40-person field competing to consume the most hot dogs on the big day, which is televised nationally. Get the full story on this annual event here. She will be back this year for her fifth round. And the men's event will be re-aired on ESPN2 at both 4:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. ET, just in case you need to watch all that hot dog fun again and again.
