Contestants Weigh In Ahead Of Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest

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

Police say they took five people into custody on Tuesday, brought them to a precinct for questioning and then released them.

Once again, Joey Chestnut proved there is no match for his feats of gastrointestinal fortitude. Daniel Mak won the adult competition, eating four hot dogs with their bun in 2:50. All told, Chestnut has won the competition a whopping 10 times at this point. He beat Carmen Cincotti (sihn-CAH'-tee), who ate 60. The Worldwide Leader even put its statisticians to work to reveal that since 2005, Chestnut had consumed 726 hot dogs in his Independence Day career heading into this year. If you're curious in checking out this year's hot dog eating theatrics, here's how you can catch this incredibly weird eating competition, which, oddly enough, will air live on TV. Police could not immediately confirm if the arrestees were animal rights protesters.

A few of them tried to hold up a banner, but the jostling crowd made whatever was on the sign indistinguishable.

"The competitors, they were on me", Chestnut said. Both he and Stonie are from San Diego, California. This year marks Nathan's Famous' 45 annual Hot Dog Eating Contest. She ate 38 and a half hot dogs and buns to take the title a year ago. Stonie came in third on Tuesday, with 48 franks and buns.
