Chestnut won his 14th Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest
(FOX NEWS) – Joey Chestnut did it again. Chestnut went on to win his 14th Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday after he broke his own record and chowed down 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes of action. During last year’s contest without fans due to the coronavirus pandemic, Chestnut ate 75 hot dogs.
“It just felt good,” Chestnut, of Westfield, Indiana, told ESPN after the victory on Sunday. “Even if I was uncomfortable, having everybody cheer me and push me, it made me feel good.”
Michelle Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona, ate 30 ¾ dogs in 10 minutes to claim the women’s title. She called her victory “an amazing feeling.”
While Chestnut was just about to break his record, the ESPN broadcast glitched and stayed frozen for a few seconds, which caused a major uproar from social media users who were tuning in to watch the annual event.
