WATCH Nathan's Hot Dog Contest LIVE STREAM

Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest: Time, how to watch, livestream of July 4 tradition

Competitors participated in Nathan's Famous July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest today in NY - but only two walked out champions. She ate 38 and a half hot dogs and buns to take the title past year.

Nobody celebrated harder than Joey Chestnut.

All: "3,2,1 put down your hot dogs!"

It's Joey Chestnut's world, we're just eating in it.

The contest is now an annual event that millions tune in to watch every year on Independence Day.

Chestnut, a 33-year-old San Jose State University alum, is entering a second decade of dominance, dating back to his 2007 hot-dog eating win over pioneer Takeru Kobayashi, who ushered in the modern era of competitive eating.

In the women's contest, Miki Sudo came in first place for the fourth straight year, consuming 41 frankfurters in 10 minutes.

Chestnut was a man of few words following his victory, but said he was feeling good despite the six dozen franks sitting in his tummy. While Joey Chestnut broke a record for his hot dog eating, Stonie only managed to tuck in 48 hot dogs.

Record-setting eaters are gearing up to gobble at the renowned Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest in NY.

Thousands of people — many wearing hot-dog-shaped hats — gathered on Coney Island's famed boardwalk for the contest.

On the women's side of the competition, the favorite is New York City native Miki Sudo. The goal is simple: Eat as many Nathan's hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes as possible - no condiments here.

Sudo's rival, Sonya Thomas, 49, who holds the female record of 45 hot dogs, ate 30 this time around.

On his way off the stage, Cincotti pledged to win next year.
