Defending champ Joey Chestnut sets record with 74 hot dogs

This is your body after 70 hot dogs competitors and doctors dish on Nathan’s contest side effects

Debate around the topic erupted after it was found that reigning champion Joey Chestnut ate 74 - not 64 like was originally thought - hot dogs in 10 minutes. Chestnut beat 20 other contestants to earn the coveted "Mustard Belt" and ate a record 74 hot dogs and buns, surpassing the previous record of 72 dogs he set past year.

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

While Chestnut earned his victory in the men's competition, Miki Sudo likewise defended her crown in the women's competition, eating 37 hot dogs within the 10-minute timeframe.

Chestnut, who brought home his third straight Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest win on Wednesday, was initially scored with having eaten 64 hot dogs and buns on a scorching day on Coney Island. Baton Rouge held a hot dog eating contest Wednesday, and no, the contestants weren't exactly pros.

Since the first recorded contest in 1972, a total of 1,509 Nathan's Famous beef hot dogs have been eaten by participants.

This year's competition also featured New Orleans' Adrian "The Rabbit" Morgan, who is the seventh-ranked competitive eater worldwide.

Joey Chestnut, the 10-time Nathan champ was the crowd favourite this year too with a tough fight from Matt Stonie.

NY native and defending champion Miki Sudo chomped down 37 hotdogs and buns, making her a five time victor of the women's contest. She described her performance as one she'd to improve upon in the future, but Sudo would be the first to admit "a win is a win". Or, if you're Tucson's Michelle Lesco, 28 of them.

A mother and daughter from New Jersey will be making hot dog history July 4th.

Following this year's edition of the contest, ESPN2 will be airing four hours of live cornhole.
