Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest on Saturday.

Nick Wehry and Miki Sudo are no strangers to the competitive eating scene.

"We met two years ago on the Fourth of July at the gym of the hotel where they put us up for the hot dog eating contest," Sudo told News 12 Connecticut. "But we started dating a year ago."

Sudo is the only one competing this Saturday, but Wehry's still training with her.

"It's great to have somebody say, like, 'Hey how'd you feel after those 223 chicken wings?'" Wehry told the TV station. "That's very hard for your average person to relate to."

Sudo a fierce competitor, too. She has won the women's title every year since 2014.

The couple ate a combined 90 hot dogs this week to prepare.

Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest will be held at an undisclosed location in Coney Island without a crowd and fewer competitors due to COVID-19.
