Professional food consumer Joey Chestnut claimed the hot dog eating crown for the fifth straight year after stuffing his face with 62 franks at the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Meanwhile, over at the newly christened Women’s Table, power-eater Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas took home the inaugural pink Pepto Bismol belt by shoving 40 hot dogs down her gullet in 10 minutes.
Takeru Kobayashi went rogue set the new (unofficial) world record for hot dog eating yesterday, besting official champion Joey Chestnut’s 62 dogs with a powerful 69. Kobayashi has been banned from the Nathan’s hot dog eating contest at Coney Island as a result of an ongoing dispute with Major League Eating. Watch his video HERE.
