    Killer Candace was getting his spanking from the Walrus for failing at his qualifier. He also was looking in his thesaurus for words to embellish the challenges with.

    are any of the big names showing up at Citifield ? or are they going to let Wild Bill and Beautiful brian duke it out to try and top the all time lowest qualifying total in Nathans history 10.5 set by Dr Leon Panzer DDS who qualified in 1997 at Newport Mall NJ Yes true story

    My guess is that they will sneak Conti in for a 4th qualifier so he can cheat his way in to Nathan’s again or another new comer will step up and win with 22 or 23.

    The limit is supposed to be 3 If not then the Shea’s changed the rules so conti could get as many chances to get in

    I watched the video and wondered why Blanche Deveraux from the Golden Girls was in a hotdog eating contest then realized it was Larrell.

    Who was the announcer? I have never seen him before.

    How do you pronounce “Larel”? Is it [luh-REL] or [LAR-uhl]?

    How do you pronounce “Ambs”? Is it [AMZ] or [AYMZ]?

    Does Larel wear a transparent band over her shirt and under her breasts to help hold the shirt up and make it tighter??
