Who are the 2017 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest champs?

While contestants like Joey Chestnut were on stage stuffing their faces, some spectators were taking aim at other faces in the crowd.

Every year, on the Fourth of July, Americans gather to celebrate freedom, independence and the attractive gluttony that only freedom provides.

Chestnut set the previous record at 70 past year. Chestnut is the defending men's champion in the Nathan's Coney Island #Hot Dog Eating contest and his performance previous year was one for the record books. The number also broke the contest record of 70 dogs in 10 minutes, set by Chestnut himself during the 2016 competition. Then go eat a hot dog. For Chestnut, he was taking back the title from the 2015 victor Matt "Megatoad" Stonie, who had stopped Chestnut's eight-year winning streak.

The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is the Super Bowl of the Major League Eating competitive circuit, and wagering lines have been released for the event at the sportsbooks.

Miki Sudo won her fourth belt in the women's competition, downing 41 franks and buns.

On the women's side, Sudo is back to defend her title.

Nine-time champion Joey "Jaws" Chestnut is defending his title Tuesday at the showdown on the Coney Island boardwalk. So Chestnut and Stonie, for all their extraordinary powers, could just as easily be seen as everyday patriots.

The victor gains possession of the Mustard Yellow International Belt for the year. Sudo's main rival looks to be the woman who came runner-up to her in 2016, Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas. Sudo has been victorious for the past three years.

Now, more than 35,000 people witness the eating event live and even more watch as it is televised on ESPN as well.
