The “Pink Belt” is coming home to Tucson.
In the women’s challenge, local competitive eater Michelle Lesco snagged first place at the 2021 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.
This is a big deal for someone that’s able to eat 10.5 lbs of boysenberry pie in 10 minutes, 158 chicken wings in 10 minutes, more than three jars of mayonnaise in three minutes, and 30 scoops of ice cream and lots o’ toppings in less than 15 minutes.
She was given the Women’s Title and Pink Belt after eating 30.75 hot dogs and their respectable buns in 10 minutes. Lesco was never behind in the race, out-eating second-place finisher Sarah Rodriguez by more than seven dogs.
