For the 18th year in a row, ESPN is broadcasting the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. The event dates back to 1972 — though there are some erroneous reports that it actually dates back to 1916, a date that promoter Mortimer “Morty” Matz admitted in 2010 was a fabrication from the early 1970s as part of publicity for the early days of the official contest, according to a story by the New York Times.

But for the past 18 years, the contest has taken place on the 4th of July and is broadcast live by ESPN. Nathan’s Famous will preside over the 2021 contest at Maimonides Park on Coney Island, New York, with George Shea, the chairman of MLE (Major League Eating), hosting the festivities, according to the ESPN press release.

ESPN personality Mike Golic Jr. will be the play-by-play commentator for the second year in a row, and the show will also include analysis by MLE’s Richard Shea and reporting by ESPN correspondent Jason Fitz.

The press release continues, “Seven-Time Women’s Champion Miki Sudo will join Golic and Shea in the booth for the women’s competition. The coverage will feature Joey Chestnut competing for a record 14th title in 15 years in the men’s contest. In addition to the live event on ESPN, an ESPN3 camera will be focused on Joey Chestnut as he attempts to break his world record of 75 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.”

Repeats of the 2021 contest will air on July 4 at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN2, and at 6 p.m. ET on ESPNews. It will also be rebroadcast on Monday, July 5 at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET on ESPNews. Furthermore, ESPN will rebroacast its “30 for 30” about the rivalry between Chestnut and Takeru Kobayashi, “The Good, The Bad, The Hungry,” at 7:30 p.m. ET on July 1.

In 2020, Chestnut broke his own record by eating 75 hot dogs in buns in 10 minutes. Also in 2020, Sudo set a new women’s record with 48 and 1/2 hot dogs, breaking the previous record set by Sonya Thomas in 2012, which was 45. Chestnut has been the winner almost every year since 2007, when he came in and defeated Kobayashi, breaking Kobayashi’s six-year winning streak. The only year Chestnut hasn’t won since 2007 was when Matt Stonie beat him 62 dogs to 60 in 2015. The women have only been competing in their own contest since 2011; Sudo has won every year since 2014.

Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest 2021 airs live Sunday, July 4 at noon ET/9 a.m. PT on ESPN.
