Road Report: Nathan's In Philadelphia
5/24/2008

Humble Bob Shoudt, a vegetarian from Doylesford, PA, consumed 38 Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs and Buns in 10 minutes to win the Philly Qualifier and earn entry to the 2008 Nathan's Famous International July 4th Hot Dog Eating Championship.

(correction) In second place was Splash Gordon with 20, and Russ Keeler took third with 17. While Bob is way too humble to admit it, he crushed the competition. Shoudt will face off against reigning champ Joey Chestnut, and others who recently qualified: Juliet Lee, Rios Grande, Pat Vandam, Pat Bertoletti, Rich LeFevre and Crazy Legs Conti.
