American Joey Chestnut Shatters Hot Dog Eating Championship Record


Joey “Jaws” Chestnut was at it again on July 4th representing America once again by breaking another major league eating record chomping down 74 hot dogs (and buns) in 10 minutes to win his 11th Nathan’s Fourth of July Hot Dog-Eating Contest on Coney Island in New York City.

In the high heat of 91 degrees with high humidity and the sun of summer beating down on him, the leading eaters were sweating profusely as they chowed down but none could keep up with the 10-time Nathan's Hot Dog champ!

Chestnut bested last year’s record of 72 hot dogs with little drama.  After a brief judging dispute at the end of the competition, it was revealed that Chestnut had eaten many more hot dogs than the running tally had indicated originally.
