MC: "They're at two minutes in and someone's already eaten 8 corn dogs!"
Milo Franks supplies the corn dogs. He's been selling at the fair for 43 years.
FRANKS: "The more they eat, the more fun it is, I think"
Twenty-one year old Wisconsin student Eric Dahl traveled here hoping he'll take home the $2,500 prize.
DAHL: "You don't slow down, you don't think about it when you're doing this stuff, otherwise you're not going to win."
Dahl has become a professional of sorts. In just a little over a year of competitive eating, he's raked in $10,000 in prize money. It's helping pay his way through school.
DAHL: "Sweets have been bad for me. I did cupcakes and needless to say that wasn't a pretty sight afterwards.
Dahl beat last year's winner. He packed away 20 corn dogs in 8 minutes. He walked off stage looking like he just went for a jog, unlike third place winner Roy Bustillo.
BUSTILLO: "This is bad, I don't think I've ever hurt this bad before. I'm really done ...Like, I, I want to go home and cry"
Pain or no pain, Bustillo says he'd do it again next year.
