The fields for the 2020 Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest have finally been announced. The big shock is that Geoff Esper is not competing with the men's field consisting of Joey Chestnut, Darron Breeden, Nick Wehry, George Chiger and Badlands Booker. This is the second consecutive surprise omission for Esper after he was left out of the Quarantine Challenge field. The women's field is as expected: Miki Sudo, Larell Marie Mele, Katie Prettyman, Julie Goldberg and Rene Rovtar.

Quarantine expansion puts Nathan’s field in doubt

New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he is expanding the list of states whose residents must self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving in his state, which will apparently prevent Matt Stonie (CA), Gideon Oji (GA) and Michelle Lesco (AZ) from competing in the 2020 Nathan’s Finals if they cannot get an exemption. Earlier today, Rich Shea appeared to confirm that Michelle Lesco will not be able to compete. Joey Chestnut is already in New York, so he is not affected by the directive.

update MLE has announced Nick Wehry will replace Matt Stonie.

update July 1 George Chiger will replace Gideon Oji.

update July 1 #2 A press release lists Miki Sudo, Katie Prettyman and Larell Marie Mele as female competitors. Katie Prettyman does not think that Sarah Reinecke and Sophia DeVita will compete due to schedule conflicts.

update July 2 NJ.com reports Rene Rovtar will be the 4th female competitor.

update July 2 #2 Julie Goldberg will apparently complete the women’s field.
