For everyone currently eating themselves into a hot dog coma at their 4th of July barbecues, don”t feel too bad — competitive eater Joey Chestnut just downed 69 FRANKS at the famous Nathan”s Hot Dog Eating Competition on Coney Island … a new personal record.
Chestnut won the competition last year with 62 dogs, but this year he went above and beyond … taking home the $10,000 grand prize and a mustard-yellow championship belt. Chestnut”s previous personal best was 68 hot dogs.
He obliterated the competition too … the 2nd place winner Matt Stonie only ate 51 hot dogs.
As for the women, Sonya “Black Widow” Thomas came in first with 37 hot dogs … pretty damn scary.
