Joey Chestnut Ate Record 74 Hot Dogs in 10 Min. Wins Nathan's Hot Dog......

 JOEY CHESTNUT won the annual 'Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest' for the 11th time yesterday, downing a record 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes.  He's only lost once in the past 12 years.



 JOEY CHESTNUT won the annual 'Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest' at Coney Island yet again yesterday.



He downed 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes, which was enough to break the previous record of 72 that he set last year.



At first, it appeared that he'd 'only' eaten 64 hotdogs . . . but the judges somehow MISSED a plate.  That briefly caused confusion for gamblers who'd placed BETS on the contest, which is apparently something you can do.



This is his 11th win in 12 years.  It's been over a decade since the skinny kid TAKERU KOBAYASHI dominated the contest.  Joey beat him in 2007 and he's been almost unstoppable ever since.



His only loss came in 2015, when he came in second behind Matt Stonie.  Kobayashi hasn't competed since 2009 because of some sort of contract dispute with 'Major League Eating.'
