Fourth of July ticks off the reminder for the very famous Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest.
Nathan’s Hotdog eating contest?
Nathan’s Hotdog eating contest is an event that takes place annually in America. Every year Nathan’s Hotdog eating contest takes place on the Independence day in Coney Island and an eatery at the Surf.
This competition has caught the public’s eye resulting in the stardom of Takeru Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut.
11 times in a row winner, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut will be competing this time waiting to be crowned for the 12th time. Chestnut aged 35, will be a tough competitor for opponents like the 2nd world rank holder Geoffrey Esper.
Who is Geoffrey Esper?
Esper is a second rank holder in the Major League Eating and a Pizza eating champion. In a short stint of 10 minutes, he devoured 83 slices of a massive 10-inch pizza.
Joey’s other contenders will be 15 other devourers including 2015, 3rd rank holder Matt Stonie.
But that is not all! It’s not a men’s game at all. The women power holds equal expertise in gobbling up the hot dogs.
