Joey Chestnut beat the hot dog champ, Kobayashi, this year by eating 66 hot dogs, including the buns and the glass of water. Ick! My tummy hurts just watching this video, but for those that didn't get to see the win here it is:
Kobayashi was only able to stuff down 63 in the 12 minute span given. He had been the world champ for the past 6 years, I'm guessing he'll begin training very soon.
