Such an unfortunate experience for the Nathan's Internation Hot Dog Eating Contest champion, who held titles from 2001 to 2006. Takeru Kobayashi would break the 50-dog mark three times, including a then-record 54 in 2006.
Kobayashi was prohibited from entering the Nathan’s Famous contest last year because of contract disputes with the organizers. This year, he is eating hotdog alone.
A report of Wall Street Journal quoted below,
Instead he will compete from afar, eating alongside a live satellite feed of the contest on the roof of 230 FIFTH, a Manhattan bar. He’ll eat the very same Nathan’s hot dogs and buns, starting and finishing in time with the real competitors.
