Miki Sudo Early Life
Miki Victoria Sudo came into the world on July 22, 1985 in the city of New York. Her family uprooted and moved to Japan when she was just five years old; they stayed there for seven years before making the trip back to the United States.
She received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she attended school. The first money Miki ever made was from participating in an eating contest at a neighbouring restaurant, which she did only because she was dared to do so.

Miki Sudo Career
Prior to competing in eating contests, Sudo had already achieved victory in a pho-eating competition. She made her debut in Major League Eating in 2014 and quickly rose to become the most formidable female opponent. In 2015, she finished in the top three of the competition. She now holds the world records for the women’s hot dog eating competition, ice cream eating competition, kimchi eating competition, and hotdish eating competition.
In 2013, Sudo was victorious at the Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest, taking first place overall. She established a new record for ladies by consuming 48.5 hotdogs and buns in a span of ten minutes. She would have consumed more than 48 hot dogs if she had been given further time.
Sudo has triumphed in a number of competitions, including the RIBMANIA Eating Championship held at Ribfest Chicago, the World Tamale Eating Championship held at the Western Days Festival, and the Foxwoods World Turkey-Eating Championship, amongst other titles. The deep-fried aubergine eating event in Stockton, California, awarded her the bronze medal, and the kimchi eating contest in Chicago, Illinois, awarded her the gold medal.
Due to the fact that Sudo was pregnant at the time of the 2021 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, she decided not to partake in the event; nevertheless, she did work for ESPN as a commentator for the competition.
In addition, Sudo maintains his own channel on YouTube, which currently has 47 thousand subscribers and has been seen more than 3.2 million times. She participates on a consistent basis in ludicrous eating competitions, big restaurant challenges, and any other events that give her the opportunity to demonstrate her ability and wit.
