    Wilkes also grabbed the top spot in 2008 and tied for the crown in 2007.

    Three people -- Tae Oh, of Plano; Brent Ricord, of Keller; and Troy Cox, of Wylie -- tied for second place.

    The contest attracted hundreds of hungry people.

    "I'm here for the free parking, the free ticket and the free corny dog -- and to make me look good and to make you look good," one woman said.
