I don't know if they have agents. The purse for Nathan's was $20,000 but I imagine people like Kobayashi and Chestnut get appearance money too. I'm waiting for their endorsement contracts to start showing up. "Nathan's Hot Dogs, I can eat 68 of them!". Or perhaps doing a pepcid TV ad. "You know, competitive eating can really give you heartburn. Especially the jalapeno eating contests. That's why I always take Pepcid AC an hour before each contest."
