Sonya Black Widow ThomasSonya Black Widow Thomas, Thomas will compete Monday in the famous Fourth of July Nathan’s hot dog eating contest in Coney Island, NY The 100-pound, 5-foot-five residents of Alexandria is the division favorite female – who once ate 41 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Are you doing any special training to prepare for July 4?

No, I have been doing for years eating competition. No need to do special training. I just need to get my mind focused. This is Nathan’s first year are separated from men and women’s divisions. How about the change? I I can compete with men. But this year I have a better chance of winning. That’s exciting.

How many hot dogs do you expect to eat the competition?

My record is 41 in 2009, and still have not beaten that, so I want to match my record at 41.

Why do you call “The Black Widow”?

Lately a lot of women are interested in [eat] competitions, but before that I was the only woman. So in the competition want to beat men. So I wanted a strong name. So why did Black Widow – as a man-eater.

What is your favorite album of staff eating?

Oysters. My record is 552 oysters in 10 minutes.

What’s your secret to eating hot dogs as fast?

The bread is dry and hard to eat. So all the eaters soak the bread in a cup of water and then swallow.

How to stay healthy when you eat so much?

Pageants are not eating every day. They are maybe once a month. You have to continue to exercise your body. When not eating competitions, not eating junk food, you have to watch what you eat. I have a good metabolism naturally.
