Generally, there are four countries; USA, Japan, Mexico and Germany which were being winner. Moreover, American and Japanese males were dominance as the winners.

First of all, from the first to the third period American males won the contest, with about 9 to 10 hot dogs and buns eaten, while in the 1983 Mexican males succeeded to be the winner, with approximately 19 hot dogs and buns eaten. Between 1985 and 1995, American contestants presenting the overall growth in numbers of hot dogs and buns eaten had rebounded on the podium.

This is not a trend or a major observation. So, this should have gone into the introduction. Overview is about the main trends and observations, but without details.
