The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, a Fourth of July tradition, is being held at New York’s Coney Island on Monday. Gossip Cop has a live stream. Watch it below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Matt Stonie defeated eight-time winner Joey Chestnut in a major upset at the 2015 competition. Chestnut’s 60 hot dogs weren’t enough to nab him a ninth consecutive win, as Stonie managed to scarf down 62. The 2016 contest will likely come down to Stonie and Chestnut once again.

Despite his winning streak having ended in 2015, Chestnut still holds the records for most hot dogs eaten in one contest when he devoured 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes at the 2013 contest. Additionally, Chestnut proposed to his girlfriend following his win at the 2014 contest. However, Stonie is currently favored to be at Chestnut again, as he’s ranked as the top competitive eater in the world.

As for the women, Miko Sudo will be looking to defend her title following back-to-back wins in 2014 and 2015. But Sonya Thomas, who won the women’s event three years in a row before Sudo dethroned her, will try and take back her crown. The Nathan’s Famous event kicks off at 10:50 a.m. with the women’s competition, and the men’s contest will follow at around noon. Celebrate July 4th by checking out a live stream of the 2016 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest! NOTE: Live stream is no longer available.
