MORE: How Does Nathan's Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest Actually Work?

Brad Kleinschmidtof Muncie, Ind., wears a patriotic outfit to watch his wife Holly Titus compete in the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest, Wednesday, July 4, 2018, in New York's Coney Island. Third place finisher Darron Breedon got 43 frankfurters down. A judging error cast initial doubt over the totals after jurists didn't see the eaters were taking the dogs and buns from two plates.

The study compared the body of Tim Janus, a competitive speed eating champion who could consume 36 hot dogs in 10 minutes, to a non-competitive eater with a healthy appetite.

In addition to bragging rights - and, probably, one heck of a bellyache - Chestnut also won $10,000 as well as the renowned 2018 Nathan's Mustard Belt.

Chestnut, 34, is an accomplished professional eater, having claimed victory 11 times out of 12 in Nathan's annual competition. It will also be interesting to see if Chestnut can break the record he set previous year when he ate an astounding 72 hot dogs - buns included - in just 10 minutes.

The Las Vegas competitor fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed past year but still beat out second-place finisher Michelle Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona. Chestnut pulled a stunner past year by eating 72 hot dogs in just 10 minutes. The under-counted tally was then displayed on live TV. Sudo has plans to enter this year's competition as well.

The women's victor was Miki Sudo, who ate 37 hots dogs, for her fifth win in a row. And this year, the man went a step ahead to break the record and walk away with $10,000 prize.

But that wasn't enough competition for Scott, who was eating hot dogs three at a time, coming in as the clear victor after quickly eating a total of seven. 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". He continued to stretch the lead down the stretch, though at a slower pace, finishing with 74 hot dogs, a dominant, 11-hot-dog-and-bun margin over second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti.
