Hot Dog Eating Contest Record Broken
This past Saturday, June 6, Kobayashi's record of 53¾ hot dogs -- with buns -- in 12 minutes was shattered by Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, who ate a whopping 59.5 hot dogs. This wasn't for the Nathan's championship, however. Joey was practicing for the July 4th main event at the Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe when he beat Kobayashi's record by nearly 6 hot dogs. (Check out a video of the action after the jump.)
Will he be able to repeat the performance on July 4th? We'll see.
