Joey Chestnut Wins Hot Dog Eating Contest Again [VIDEO]

CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz may disagree with me, but I believe the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is “a tradition unlike any other.” It’s as much a part of celebrating the Fourth of July holiday as cookouts, the Boston Pops and fireworks at the Empire State Plaza┬áin downtown Albany. Over the last six years, there has been one constant at this yearly tradition – a victory for Joey “Jaws” Chestnut.

For the sixth year in a row, Chestnut took home the $10,000 first prize money and the coveted Yellow Mustard Belt by eating a personal-best 68 hot dogs in the 10-minute time period. The 28-year-old has now tied Takeru Kobayashi for most career victories in the 97-year-old contest.

In honor of today’s contest, I was challenged by Tanch from our sister station Hot 99.1 to a mini-challenge yesterday morning. Let’s see who won this battle of titanic hot dog appetites!
