Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Celebrates 100th Anniversary!

Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is one of the highly anticipated events of the Fourth of July and it is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016!

Joey Chestnut and Matt Stonie, the two big rivals in the contest, are set to compete against each other and several more hopefuls in this year’s showdown.

Matt defeated Joey in the contest last year, breaking the champ’s eight year winning streak.

Joey still holds the record of eating 69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. The odds are in favor of Matt winning this year, but make sure to tune in at 12pm EST on ESPN to see who wins!
