Chestnut wins 6th Nathan's Title

Yesterday at the Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY Joey “Jaws” Chestnut ate 62 hot dogs and buns to claim his fifth championship title at the annual eating contest. The #1 ranked Chestnut by Major League Eating fell just 6 hot dogs short of matching his world record of 68 hot dogs and buns.

This year was also Nathan’s first ever Women’s Division in the famous eating competition. The Women’s Champion, Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas (at 5’5″ and 105 lbs) took the top spot with 40 hot dogs and buns consumed. She bested runner up, Juliet Lee by 10 hot dogs and buns. Both the men’s and women’s winners took home $40,000 in prize money, not bad for 10 minutes worth of work!
