WE’RE COUNTING DOWN TO THE BIG DAY

Last year, Joey Chestnut broke his own world record with an incredible 69 hot dogs eaten in just 10 minutes. Can anyone defeat him? The Women's Champion, Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, put away a seemingly impossible 45. Is there a new contender on the horizon? All will be answered July 4 on national TV. Check back here after for our video recap.
