Congrats To Joey Chestnut – You Are Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Champion Winner AGAIN
On the Fourth of July, I broke my own personal record - two hamburgers and two hot dogs in one sitting! For me, that was bragging rights. For Joey Chestnut, that was an appetizer!
According to Newser.com , Joey Chestnut did it again for the 7th time. He won the Nathan's Famous National Hot Dog Eating Contest. Get this, folks. He swallowed 69 franks in 10 minutes.That's like 7 a minute. Wow, I'm proud. I figured that out myself.
Joey won for the guys, and Sonja Thomas (right) took it for the women! She had 36 3/4 of the tube steaks
Kind of reminds me of our Helmbold's contest that we judged recently at the Joe Bruno Stadium in Troy. That was amazing enough to witness. I can't even visualize 70 hot dogs being ingested. So to Joey -in whatever bathroom you're in right now - we send you our deepest congrats (or condolences, whatever works for you)
