Hurricane hot dog eating champ named

By  | 

HURRICANE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- From a parade, to plenty of music and good food the opportunities for fun to help celebrate America's birthday seemed endless in Hurricane on Tuesday.

Some people though, took the food part, to a whole new level.

It's all thanks to a hot dog eating contest sponsored by Sheetz.

Each contestant had five minutes to eat as many hot dogs as they could- bun included.

The winner, Ethan Teske, was able to consume 17.

That is an average of 3.4 per-minute.

Teske, according to Hurricane Mayor Scott Edwards, came all the way to Hurricane from Nashville specifically for the contest.

Teske took home $500 cash and bragging rights.

Right behind Teske was Woody Lewis. He ate 14 hot dogs.

And Ron Clark took home the third place prize after eating 13.
