Last year, the competitive eater downed 32 ½ dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

Nothing says the Fourth of July like barbecues, fireworks and Joey Chestnut winning the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.

The construction manager turned pro eater doesn't just devour hot dogs - he now holds 40 eating records for everything from apple pies to burritos. "Joey said, "look at my plates" and Carmen said 'look at my plates.' We counted the plates that they had eaten and it was 64 and 74". The slender eater won the event from 2001 through 2006 before Chestnut took the title in 2007. "As soon as I can start eating, I try to eat vegetables, fiber", Chestnut told Kieran Darcy of ESPN. The men's portion of the event begins at 12:00 PM Eastern and can also be streamed via the WatchESPN app if you don't happen to be around a TV. Not fireworks or a Taylor Swift party (RIP), but a world record at a hot dog eating contest. It was a unusual error to be that far off, but considering Chestnut was finishing 7.4 hot dogs per minute - that's a hot dog and bun every 8.1 seconds - it was tough to keep up. It is a tradition to grill hot dogs on the fourth of July, and this was later turned into a spectator sport, which is considered a big part of the Independence Day celebrations.

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.

Sudo has won the contest five years in a row. The 35-year-old Baton Rouge native won a spot in the contest after qualifying in Houston by eating 39 hot dogs.

Sudo gobbled 37 franks. 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!

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