The favorites are Meredith Boxberger and Tim Janus, who says he has not eaten a hot dog since the 2014 Nathan’s finals.

Janus’ last contest was the Brooklyn cannoli eating contest in October. According to the official account of that event, he received second place after he claimed he was credited with an extra plate after tying Badlands Booker. (Interestingly, the Brookly Daily’s account makes no mention of that deduction and claims the margin was .75 cannolis.)
