Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest live results: Tracking the 2021 winners, total hot dogs consumed


Can Joey Chestnut top last year’s performance?

All eyes will be on him in the 2021 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest after he ate 75 hot dogs and buns last year to break his own record for the most hot dogs eaten in a single contest. He did that behind closed doors as the event was closed to spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This year, he will be doing it at Maimonides Park on Coney Island in front of fans. Chestnut will be hoping to win his sixth straight Mustard Belt in the men’s competition, while the women’s competition will be crowning a new champion after Miki Sudo, winner of the past seven women’s competitions, announced that she will not be competing this year as she is expecting her first child. 

Sporting News is tracking live results from the hot dog eating contest Sunday.
