Joey Chestnut breaks world record at Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest
Joey Chestnut scored another victory at the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island yesterday afternoon breaking his own record after shoving 74 wieners down his mouth, a new world record. Chestnut's previous record was 72. Chestnut recently explained how he prepares for competition and looks like his method paid off because he out did his competition by almost 30 hot dogs. Carmen Cincotti came in second place with 45 dogs.
The win is Chestnut's third straight victory and 11th overall in the last 12 years, but it didn't go without incident. Oficials first said he only ate 64 dogs after a plate of 10 dogs hadn't been counted, not that it would've mattered for the win, because he clearly beat others to it.
