Joey Chestnut Wins Hot Dog Eating Contest

On July 4th, 2009, Joey Chestnut won the Coney Island Hot Dog eating contest for the third year in a row. He ate 68 hot dogs in twelve minutes. 68. I don't think I could eat 68 hot dogs in 12 months. On a recent ESPN program, Chestnut claims to make over 100,000 dollars a year in eating competitions. Everybody makes money except me.

In the video below, you will see highlights of the 09 contest. Yeah, it's disgusting.

Thanks to Major League Eating for posting this video at YouTube.

Yeah, there is Major League Eating. Seriously, I don't make this stuff up.

If Wikipedia is correct, Chestnut, a competitive eater, once ate 103 Krystal burgers in 12 minutes at the Krystal Square Off in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
