Do I need tickets to watch the Nathan's Hot Dog Contest?

I can't find the answer on Google or the Nathan's website. I want to go watch this Friday, but I'd hate to trek all the way out to Coney Island only to get turned away for not having tickets. Any thoughts?

You don't need tickets, but you need to be tall and get there early. There's no elevated seating or stands for the public, that's for press and vip's, so you have to crowd in as best as you can.

Good luck.

You do not need tickets. I would consider anti-nausea medication, however.
