Paige Spiranac reveals she's taking part in Fourth of July tradition: 'I'm really doing it'


Golf influencer Paige Spiranac is taking her own shot at the hot dog eating competition this week.

Spiranac, who has millions of followers across multiple social media platforms, revealed her plans on X on Tuesday as Americans get ready to watch grown men eat a lot of hot dogs on Coney Island in New York and cook some up on the grills themselves.

“I’m doing it. I’m really doing it,” she wrote. “Attempting to see how many hotdogs I can eat in 10 minutes again this year. What’s your guess?”

Spiranac put her name in the running to fill in for Joey Chestnut, who was forced out of Major League Eating’s premier contest this Fourth of July holiday because of his sponsorship with Impossible Foods.

She then posted a video she found of herself eating six hot dogs in 10 minutes.
