Chomp Champion Chestnut Breaks Hot Dog Munching Record at Famed Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest


Joey “Jaws” Chestnut continues his reign as the chowing champion at the annual July Fourth hot dog eating contest at Nathan’s Famous in New York.

The San Jose, California, man beat his own record to log a 10th win. He downed 72 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes Tuesday, besting Carmen Cincotti, who ate 62.

Chestnut downed 70 franks and buns in 10 minutes last year, topping his record at the time and taking back the title from Matt “The Megatoad” Stonie. Stonie came in third on Tuesday, with 48 franks and buns.

Meanwhile, Miki Sudo notched a fourth-time win in the women’s division. The Las Vegas woman ate 41 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes to win her fourth straight title.

She beat Michelle Lesco, who downed 32 franks and buns. Women’s record-holder Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas came in third with 30 — she holds the women’s record for the contest, at 45 dogs and buns. Read more at NBC.

  4. 100% of the above comments are all in agreement that this article does not belong on a frum website; like seriously, who cares?! Why would Matzav even think of reporting this disgusting contest about “champions” whose values are antithecal to our Torah values….Now Matzav has to be filtered?!

  5. the only reason I can think of reporting this is show just how utterly foolish the umos haolam and their so called, “news,” reporting is. this pathetic fellow who is the champion has absolutely nothing more important in his life! this is certainly not any tikkun olam.
