The two reigning champs of a hot dog eating contest joined their challengers for a weigh-in as they hope to devour their way into the record books Wednesday in New York City.

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut and Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, the male and female champions respectively, will defend their titles at the annual event in Brooklyn.

Chestnut and Thomas attended the weigh-in Tuesday, a day before the competition. Chestnut weighed in at 210 pounds while his female counterpart was 100 pounds.

And both competitors are ready to eat their way into first place, again.
