It was a messy fourth of July in Wytheville

The town held its first ever Hot Dog eating contest. Thirteen people entered, including WDBJ7's Orlando Salinas.

The contest was put on by Skeeter's World Famous Hot Dogs.

Contestants had five minutes to put away 12 hot dogs. The crowd cheered everybody on, but in the end the best hot dog eater won.

For the record, Orly came in second but was disqualified for tossing hot dogs into the crowd.
