Chestnut has won the annual Independence Day showcase on five straight occasions and has only lost once since 2007. Matt Stonie, who was among the contenders who couldn’t attend this year’s event because of restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, pulled off the upset in 2015.

Miki Sudo crushed the women’s competition with a record-setting 48.5 hot dogs and buns for her seventh consecutive pink belt. Sonya Thomas, a three-time champion, held the previous mark of 45.
