The world's top competitive eaters will unite at Marlins Park on April 20th to compete for a seat at the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island on July 4th. The eating contest will start at 5 pm on Marlins Park and contestants will have to eat faster than Joey Chestnut to break the world record.
Currently, Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo are the currents champions and top eaters. He broke the Coney Island record with 74 hot dogs in 2018. Miki Sudo ate 41 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
This eating contest is so serious that is broadcast on ESPN and it receives over 40,000 fans each year. But if you're still wondering how these eating stars can eat so much food in 10 minutes, they have their tricks.
According to Nathan's Famous website, contestants stretch their stomachs for the main event by drinking gallons of milk or water very quickly. They also eat a lot of fibrous foods like watermelon and oatmeal in a matter of minutes.
If you're thinking to participate in this contest you can register with the Major League Eating here. The top female and male eater who wins in Miami will compete on July 4th in Coney Island.

Florida is looking to ease government-enforced COVID-19 restrictions as cases slowly continue to drop and vaccines are administered across the state.
Governor Ron DeSantis, in a press conference on Monday, issued an executive order that immediately suspends all current local COVID-19 restrictions, while also signing a bill that will prohibit local governments from enforcing COVID-19 emergency orders, including mask mandates and social distancing requirements, starting July 1.
On top of the new order, DeSantis also reinforced his ban on "vaccine passports," saying it is unnecessary to be "policing people at this point."
"If you're saying that, you really are saying you don't believe in the vaccines, you don't believe in the data," he said.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the order only prevents local governments from issuing COVID-19 restrictions, meaning local businesses and restaurants may still enforce restrictions such as mask mandates and/or social distancing precautions.
