For the third consecutive year, Michael Diebold of Anderson defeated all comers in the Skins Hot Dog Eating Contest at the S.C. Festival of Discovery.

Diebold ate 18 hot dogs in 12 minutes to secure the victory over Mark “Fro Hungry” Reboul of Aiken, who ate 17 hot dogs, and hometown favorite Bryan Crocker, who put down 14 hot dogs.

“It’s great to be back on top,” Diebold said of his victory. “I only do two contests each year. I’m not a professional, don’t claim to be a professional, but I like to win the two contests I enter every year.”

Diebold won last year’s contest by eating 18 hot dogs and won in 2012 by eating 22 hot dogs during the 12 minute contest.

“Fro Hungry” said he was satisfied with his performance.

“This was my first hot dog eating contest,” Reboul said. “I only trained for one week prior to this contest. If I had trained for two or three more weeks I think I would have done better.”

As the local favorite, Crocker was looking to unseat the champion from Anderson. But it may have been his daughter Morgan who turned in the most impressive performance by a Crocker at the competition.

“I just wasn’t feeling it today,” said Crocker, who could be seen shaking his head during the competition. “Morgan did really good, though. Maybe it’s time to turn it over to her.”

Morgan Crocker ate seven hot dogs during the contest. The 12-year-old Crocker said she had fun following in dad’s footsteps.

“My dad did it so I thought I should do it, too,” Morgan Crocker said. “My technique was squeeze ‘em and eat ‘em. I had a lot of fun.”
