Golf pin-up Paige Spinarac has delighted her admirers with a patriotic photo on the 4th of July, while also teasing them with a cheeky hot-dog question as speed-eating king Joey Chestnut set a new record by gorging himself.
Uploading a photo of herself in a Stars and Stripes-style bikini, blonde stunner Spiranac captioned the image with the message “Happy 4th of July” for her fans and adding American flag emojis.
“This is me before I attempted to see how many hot dogs I could eat in 10 minutes. How many do you think I ate?” Spiranac asked her 3 million followers.
Liked by 100,000 people in a couple of hours, the post was met with a string of flame and love heart emoji comments.
But no matter her prowess in scoffing hot dogs, it seems difficult to believe that Spiranac will come anywhere close to the new record set on Sunday in what has become an all-American tradition.

Branded the GOAT in the “sport”, Joey Chestnut set a new world record by putting back 76 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
Clearly emotional as he had his hand raised while receiving the iconic Nathan’s Mustard Belt for the Coney Island landmark’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, Chestnut has now won it 14 times.
“This is what I love. I love eating in front of people and they love pushing me,” Chestnut remarked to ESPN before his latest feat.
“I’m just a guy that eats hot dogs and have fun. I’m just so happy to be doing this.”
Would be cool if we saw it

“Would be cool if we saw it,” a frustrated Paige remarked in the comments section, taking a dig at SportsCenter for not posting the full clip of Chestnut’s performance.
Chestnut, though, has been dubbed the “greatest athlete of all time” for his feat (jokingly we hope, but sometimes you never know).

Winning the contest 14 times out of its last 15 editions, Chestnut is estimated to have consumed close to 23,000 calories in what was described by USA Today as an “eating clinic”.
