Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest will still happen — but with some changes.
TMZ says the event will take place at a “private location without fans” and that the competitors have been reduced by a third “to ensure social distancing.”
All staffers will wear masks and gloves, and all eaters will be tested for COVID-19 before the event.
Also Major League Eating, the organization behind the contest, and the eaters will donate to local food banks and will honor essential workers in New York City.
