Are You Up For The Challenge?



It is that time of year!
What does 4th of July bring
you say? Well, the annual
Nathan's Hot Dog Eating
Contest of course!

This is the 98th year and it
will begin at high noon (est.
time) on Coney Island. Check
your local listing for broadcast
time if you are so inclined to
watch people stuff their faces
with hot dogs.  :)

Prizes are:

Men: the "bejeweled"
mustard yellow belt
and cash prizes.

Women: the pink
"bejeweled" belt and
cash prizes.

On July 4, 2011, Sonya
Thomas won the competition
in the first Women's contest by
eating 40 in 10 minutes!
Last year she consumed 45!
She is nicknamed "the black
widow".

The men's winner last year,
Joey Chestnut is looking to
break last year's record of
69 hot dogs consumed.
That was a record from the
previous year. All it took was
10 minutes!


Sooooo, are YOU up for the
challenge? I can tell YOU
very loudly for me "NO!"
I'm kinda a leisurely hot
dog eater.

Happy eating!

~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. I cannot imagine, even for a second, being able to eat that many hotdogs! Lol. I'm always amazed by the people who do this.
