He has done it again, folks.
Joey Chestnut took home the belt by eating 71 hot dogs -- or sandwiches -- in 10 minutes Thursday at the 2019 Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. The Bay Area native, who lives in San Jose, now has a whopping 12 titles at the event.
He's been crowned the champion in four straight years now. Thursday's count of 71 hot dogs was three off his record of 74.
Here are some, uhh, stats from Chestnut's feat.
