Joey Chestnut somehow managed to eat 70 hot dogs and buns into his stomach for a new record in the annual July 4th Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest.
In 2013, Chestnut set a world record by eating 69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. Chestnut also set a record last month when he ate 73 1/2 hot dogs and buns during a qualifying event.
Chestnut, 32, easily secured victory by polishing off 17 more hot dogs than Stonie, who last year ended Chestnut’s streak of eight straight wins in a major upset to take the championship title at Nathan’s Famous on Coney Island.
Joey, you might want to hit the gym now.
