The 2024 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is set to chomp off in Coney Island, New York. This year, Joey Chestnut won't be part of the contest due to a contractual dispute with Major League Eating, leaving him on the sidelines and away from an opportunity at a 17th Mustard Belt. That opens the door (and the esophagus) for Geoff Esper, who was the runner-up in 2023.

Major contestants:

Geoffrey Esper, 49, Oxford, Massachusetts - The #2 eater in the world by Major League Eating. It's his ninth appearance at the competition. Nathan's says his personal best is 51 hot dogs and buns, and he holds 19 world records for competitive eating, including eating 23.75 pounds of strawberry shortcake on June 15.

Nicholas Wehry, 35, Tampa, Florida - #4 ranked eater in the world by Major League Eating. It'll be his seventh appearance in the competition. His personal best is 48 hot dogs and buns. He's the Cuban sandwich eating champion, having eaten 22 of them in 8 minutes. He's married to the top female competitive eater in the world, Miki Sudo.

James Webb, 35, Sydney, Australia - #5 ranked eater in the world by Major League Eating, and #1 competitive eater in Australia. Nathan's hails him as the "undisputed champion of the southern hemisphere."

Eating isnt a sport.

This idiotic hot dog contest and me having to see articles on it on most sport sites in July is a personal pet peeve.
