Every year on July 4, the hot dog brand Nathan's Famous hosts a hot dog eating contest at their Coney Island home, a spot that TIME has previously called the "spiritual home of the USA hot dog".

Joey chowed down on a staggering 74 hot dogs in just 10 minutes, creating a new world record.

Montville Schools Superintendent René Rovtar and her daughter, Kristina Rovtar, are both competing in the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest on Coney Island. And, if you put yourself in Chestnut's shoes, if you care enough to eat 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes, you definitely want the world to know how many dogs you actually ate.

The competition initially counted 64 hot dogs for Chestnut but after further review, it was determined that the counters failed to count an entire plate.

However, Sudo displayed her prowess by eating 41 hot dogs and buns a year ago, and remains a heavy -550 favorite against the field to successfully defend her title Wednesday afternoon.

For many people around the nation, Fourth of July means freedom, barbecues, patriotism and Coney Island's Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.

The 2018 Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest is nearly here and that means thousands will gather at Nathan's Famous hot dog restaurant in Coney Island to witness one of the most popular competitive eating competitions in the world on Independence Day. "As soon as I can start eating, I try to eat vegetables, fiber", Chestnut told Kieran Darcy of ESPN.

Shea is now uncertain about what type of technology can be used to tally hot dogs and buns. He holds the record with 73.5 hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes in a 2016 qualifier. 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.

The official tally of hot dogs was certified by Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, according to ESPN.

Following this year's edition of the contest, ESPN2 will be airing four hours of live cornhole. She chomped down 37 hot dogs and buns.
