On Monday, Joey Chestnut made history once again as he became a 15-time champion in the widely popular 15th Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island.
Chestnut ate 63 hot dogs and 63 buns in minutes to reclaim his title as the world’s best hot dog eater.
Chestnut expressed great joy for his win.
“It was a crazy contest,” Chestnut said.
I’m happy I was able to come through on top. New York is amazing. “There’s no place like it in the world,” Chesnut added.
Aside from being a 15-time champion, Chestnut also set a world record by wolfing 76 hot dogs and buns in a year.
Moreover, according to reports, the GEOAT — Greatest Eater of All Time — walked away with another mustard-colored belt to wrap around his full waist.
He’s won all but one of Nathan’s contests since 2006.
