Joey Chestnut Wins 2011 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

Joey Chestnut has won his 5th consecutive Mustard Yellow Belt at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Before the competition started, Chestnut told ESPN sideline reporter and former NFL cheerleader Renee Herlocker, “I feel like a big hungry American eating machine.” Chestnut backed up that claim by devouring 62 hot dogs, falling just 6 dogs and buns short of his record.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Kobayashi ate 69 hot dogs on a Manhattan rooftop. If official, it would have been a wold record.

And here’s that ridiculous Hot Dog song by LMFAO.
