Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Qualifier at Arizona Mills

1 of 20
On July 4, the world's best competitive eaters will throw down in an epic hot dog eating contest live from Coney Island. To make it to Coney Island, you've got to do well in a qualifier; such as the one held in Arizona Mills Mall last Saturday. First place went to Erik "The Red" Denmark who ate 29 hot dogs and buns in ten minutes.
