Joey Chestnut is off the market. Sorry ladies. Before the 2014 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, Chestnut, the 7-time defending champion surprise his girlfriend, Neslie Ricasa, by proposing. On stage at Coney Island in front of a hot dog mascot. Folks, that image IS America. Proposing before the hot dog eating contest was probably the right call. Win or lose, you never want to propose with a belly full of hot dogs.
