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 in 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!
