Joey Chestnut took home another victory at the 2018 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 at New York's Coney Island Boardwalk. Surprisingly, the competition has become a hit on the betting sites with bookies too-offering odds on the winners and number of hot dogs eaten.
The 2018 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is in the books. Second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti ate 64. "To eat hot dogs competitively", according to René, "I like to split them - take the hot dogs out of the buns - try to eat the hot dog as quickly while I am dunking the bun".
"I found a vicious rhythm", the 34-year-old Chestnut said after the stuffing session. It's a unusual way to set a world record, but it's a world record nevertheless.
