Joey Chestnut Regains Hot Dog Eating Title
What would the 4th of July be without a few hot dogs on the grill, washed down with an ice cold beverage? Well, for former competitive eating champion Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, try 70 hot dogs and buns in just 10 minutes!
The former and now re-crowned World Champion, Joey Chestnut of San Diego, California, dethroned reigning champion Todd "Megatoad" Stonie (also of San Diego) who took the championship belt from Chestnut last year, ending an eight year reign
Even though his 70 Nathan's hotdogs and buns in 10 minutes was impressive, the real record came last month when Chestnut ate 73 1/2 and set a world record while qualifying.
