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

Joey Chestnut has won the 2017 Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest by downing 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

Joey Chestnut continued a Fourth of July tradition - winning Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island's famed Boardwalk in Brooklyn, N.Y.

After falling to Matthew Stonie in 2015, defending champion and eating legend Joey Chestnut picked up his ninth title last summer taking down an awesome 70 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

He gulped down 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes to once again hold onto his reign, beating last year's record of 70 set last year.

Last month, Joey Chestnut beat Matt Stonie in an ice cream sandwich eating competition.

Meanwhile, the women's side has featured a yearslong rivalry between Sudo and record-holder Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, of Alexandria, Virginia.

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.

Tuesday's female victor was Miki Sudo, who ate 41 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

Needless to say, this prominent placement allowed me to find my way onto television plenty of times during ESPN's broadcast.

The owner of the Coney Island stand, Nathan Handwerker, overheard four immigrants arguing over who was more patriotic. Miki Sudo won the women's title by scarfing down 41. She won a year ago with 38.5 hot dogs, making it her third consecutive victory.

At the Nathan's contest a year ago, three Direct Action Everywhere activists were arrested for trying to jump the stage and interrupt the contest.

The man they call "Jaws" increased his total by two hot dogs over 2016 and has eaten at least 60 hot dogs in eight of his 10 victories.
