Some of my Competitive Eating Trophies
2017 is my 15th year as "The Black Widow!"

2017-06-29: Good luck to all competitors, both ladies and gentlemen, in Tuesday's July 4th annual Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest held on Coney Island, of which I've been a proud participant since 2003, when I ate 25 Hot Dogs and Buns (HDBs).  Nine years later, I was very happy to set the (Women's) record of 45 HDBs on July 4, 2012. 

Though my best years in competitive eating have passed, I've made my mark, and it remains an honor--and it remains fun--to be on stage at Coney Island on the 4th of July, yet again, for the 15th consecutive year.  After all, what could be more American than eating Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs on Coney Island on the 4th of July?!

May each and every fan of THE BLACK WIDOW have the best 4th of July ever! Smile
