One criticism of competitive eating is the message that the gluttonous sport sends as obesity levels rise among Americans, and the example it sets for youth.
However, here is a little history about this intriguing competition.
The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest has been held at the original location on Coney Island most years since about 1972, usually in conjunction with Independence Day. Nathan’s promoter Mortimer “Morty” Matz claimed that on July 4, 1916, four immigrants held a hot dog eating contest at Nathan’s Famous stand on Coney Island to settle an argument about who was the most patriotic. He also made the spurious claim that the contest has been held each year since then except 1941 “as a protest to the war in Europe” and 1971 as a protest to political unrest in the U.S.
