The Mustard Belt Stays Put! Joey Chestnut Wins 13th Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest; Sets New Record In The Process

Was there ever any doubt?

San Jose’s favorite hot dog eating son, Joey Chestnut, is a champion once again!

On July 4, he devoured the competition at the Nathan’s Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, New York by consuming a record 75 hot dogs in just 10 minutes!

He broke his own record from last year of 74 hot dogs.

Different from the annual contests of the past, this year’s contest was held indoors and without an audience.

“Minute six is where I missed the crowd, I hit a wall,” Chestnut said after his win, before adding, “Being inside helped.”

This is Joey Jaws’ 13th time winning the contest in the last 14 years.

How many hot dogs can you eat in 10 minutes?
