Hartman, the #18 ranked professional competitive eater and military veteran, has previously competed in the hot dog eating contest. 7 Eyewitness News caught up with him prior to the competition in 2018 and in 2019 as well.
In 2019 Hartman ate 29.5 hot dogs in just 10 minutes, a new personal best at the time, and finished in 10th place.
In addition to competitive eating, Hartman is also an aspiring professional wrestler who hopes to one day perform at Wrestlemania.
