Joey Chestnut eats Coney Island record 70 hot dogs, reclaims title

At last year’s Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, eight-time champion Joey Chestnut lost the crown to young and upcoming eater Matt Stonie. On Monday, Chestnut became a nine-time champion when he reclaimed the crown as best hot dog eater.

Chestnut won the “Mustard Belt” for a ninth time in his career while also making history at Coney Island. He ate 70 hot dogs, a new record, to knock off Stonie.

If you didn’t think this was disgusting enough, the nutritional information of Joey Chestnut’s daring task is pretty daunting.

Yeah, this is pretty crazy, but for the 101st contest, I would say it has been a successful day overall. Congrats to the most disgusting man in the world, Joey Chestnut.
