Joey Chestnut: Nathan’s Hot Dog Champion 2009

Defending his title for the third year in a row, Chestnut defeated Takeru Kobayashi and set a new world record of 68 hot dogs. The contest is only 10 minutes long, so that’s about one dog every 9 seconds. For his trouble, Chestnut gets to take home $20,000 and the title belt. posted on
