For the 11th consecutive year, the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest will have a women’s championship awarded, with 10 contestants vying for the pink belt on Sunday, July 4th from Coney Island in New York.
There have only been two women in history to win the competition: Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas from 2011-2013, and Miki Sudo from 2014-2020. But Sudo is pregnant and won’t compete this year, making Michelle Lesco the prohibitive favorite at -835 at DraftKings Sportsbook to take home the biggest prize in competitive eating.
