Previous competitors who hit that mark either won a subsequent qualifier or received the wild card. The previous high for not making the finals was Pat “from Moonachie” Philbin’s 32 in 2009.

2018 Taste of Syracuse Nathan’s qualifier

update June 10 Syracuse NewTimes gallery
Official results
1) Geoff Esper 45
2) George Chiger 26
3) Jim Reeves 22

1W) Kristina Rovtar 6.5, daughter of Rene Rovtar

LocalSyr.com reports Geoff Esper won the men’s division with 45 hot dogs. From the picture, it appears there was at least one female entrant, so “uncontested” failed to defend the women’s division.

Geoff Esper is the favorite in the men’s division. We will see if “Uncontested” defends her Taste of Syracuse qualifier title in the women’s division.
