VIDEO: “This is America, man!”: Nathan’s July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest is back in full swing

Nathan’s famous hot dog eating contest returns to its historic Coney Island site for the first time since the pandemic on July 4, with world champion Joey Chestnut retaining his title but failing to break the record and being briefly interrupted by an animal rights activist.

Ranked No. 1 Miki Sudou regained the title after missing last year’s competition due to pregnancy.
