The competitive eater and reigning Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest victor took home the crown once against Tuesday in the 45th installment of the Fourth of July competition in Coney Island, N.Y., setting a new contest record in the process.

Competitors participated in Nathan's Famous July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest today in NY - but only two walked out champions. Joey Chestnut domination was inevitable.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals members separately had been giving away free vegan hot dogs outside the event, but spokeswoman Tricia Lebkuecher said the people arrested inside weren't affiliated with PETA.

Last month, Joey Chestnut beat Matt Stonie in an ice cream sandwich eating competition.

Thousands came out to watch the 10th annual contest, and the reigning champs showed why they're still tops. Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, also a three-time champion, is a +275 underdog. Since 2007, the only year Chestnut didn't win was in 2015 when he finished two behind Stonie's total of 60.

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

Current men's champion Joey Chestnut, of San Jose, Calif., holds a tray of hot dogs during the weigh-in for the 2017 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, in Brooklyn Borough Hall, in New York, Monday, July 3, 2017.

Last year, she won here with 38 and a half.

The owner of the Coney Island stand, Nathan Handwerker, overheard four immigrants arguing over who was more patriotic.

Eating contests have become popular in the USA and various forms are held across the country throughout the year. After the contest, as the competitors were chatting casually and exchanging war stories (as a one-time eater, I didn't have much material), Thomas came up and asked me how many kolaches I ate.
