Monday, competitive eaters from all over the world will vie for the coveted "Mustard Belt" at the annual 4th of July Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, including an upstart challenger from the Front Range.
A relative newcomer, Miller burst on the scene last year, devouring 40 twinkies to claim fifth place in the 2015 World Twinkie Eating Championship. He then consumed 42 tamales to place sixth in the Western Days Festival World Tamale Eating Championship.
