ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The Nathan's female hotdog eating champ shows challenges Tim Ezell on live TV.

Marlene Wigginton, a software engineer from Troy, Ill., bested the other women in the contest with nine and a half hot dogs. As the top female eater, she earned the right to go to the finals in Coney Island.

She wanted to participate in a hot dog-eating contest since she was in high school, and she trained for the event by eating large meals over the last couple of weeks.
