Judging Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

Judging Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

Bill told us what exactly his responsibilities as a judge were, and, of course, what it's like to be that close while athletes literally shove hot dog after hot dog down their throats. They separate the hot dog and the bun...because the hot dog is hard and the bun is soft, plus they dip the bun in water. I was right next to Joey Chestnut, who goes really, really hard for the first four minutes and gets a big lead. He's, I don't know, the Michael Jordan of hot dog eating! But if you'd like to become a judge for the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, what I would say is that it's particularly accessible, which I also found intriguing.
