Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Overview

It was incredible to watch Game of Thrones’ ratings grow exponentially over eight seasons, and it is by far the most-watched show in HBO history. The first season averaged just 2.5 million viewers, but as word of mouth spread, the audience grew larger and larger with each passing season. There were 3.8 million viewers on average in the second season, and the third season saw the viewership grow to nearly 5 million.

Those numbers kept ballooning as the series progressed. Season Six saw an average of 7.7 million viewers an episode, and Season Seven saw an incredible jump to almost 10.3 million viewers per episode. There were seven episodes in the seventh season (compared to 10 episodes in the previous six), and the shorter season only increased people’s appetite for Game of Thrones. The final season was only six episodes, but it averaged nearly 12 million viewers. Those were just the number of people that watched the television channel though, and if you include the people that were watching online or through the app, the series finale brought in a whopping 19.3 million viewers.

Joey Chestnut is synonymous with the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Since dethroning Kobayashi in 2007, he has won a record 12 competitions, and he has continually shattered the record for most hot dogs eaten in the span of 10 minutes. Chestnut has whoofed down at least 70 hot dogs in each of the last four years, and his dominance has led to other competitors knowing they are fighting for second place. In addition to holding the hot dog eating record, he has recently set records in croquettes (185 in 10 minutes), poutine (28 pounds in 10 minutes), and Big Macs (32 in 38 minutes).

Kobayashi has not competed in this competition since 2009 due to a long-running dispute with the organizers of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, but he still holds more than a dozen competitive eating records.

Until 2011, women and men competed on the same stage in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, and two women won this competition while the field was still unified. Melody Andorfer consumed 12 hot dogs in five minutes to win the competition on Labor Day in 1972, and Birgit Felden ate 9.5 hot dogs in 10 minutes to win the title in 1984.

Sonya Thomas was the first great female professional eater, besting male rivals across the country during the 2000s and early 2010s. She won the first three Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contests after the competitors were divided by sex, and Thomas still holds the record for most hot dogs eaten by a woman at Coney Island.

Miki Sudo has won the last six Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contests, but her numbers have declined since she ate 41 hot dogs in 2017. That could lead to Sudo finally losing her title in 2020.
