Watch Human Vacuum Joey Chestnut Devour 75 Hot Dogs in 10 Minutes

In an outstanding display of individual athletic performance, reigning Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Champion Joey Chestnut has obliterated 75 hot dogs in just 10 minutes, claiming a new world record in the process. The event, which takes place on the boardwalks of Coney Island, New York every year on July Fourth was sadly forced indoors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, despite the change of scenery and lack of crowd, it was a familiar result, with Chestnut taking out his 13th title in 14 years.

Hot Dog Eating Contest

The human vacuum inhaled a whopping 75 hot dogs, besting the previous world record of 74, set by Chestnut last year. The visceral and entirely graphic performance was captured in full on ESPN and it makes for some confronting viewing. Apparently, when you take the masses of drunken Fourth of July attendees out and bring the eating contest indoors, the situation becomes less holiday event and more organised chaos. But Chestnut wasn’t the only one to break new ground in the eating stakes.

On the women’s side of the equation, Miki Sudo managed to shovel down 48.5 hot dogs; the most ever downed by a woman in the event. Sudo’s performance earned her a seventh championship, surpassing Takeru Kobayashi and taking her to second on the all-time win list behind only Chestnut. Both Sudo and Chestnut won their prospective divisions by a significant margin. The female champion was a full 30.5 hot dogs better than her closest competitor, while Chestnut slurped his way to a landslide 33 hot dog victory.

Sure, the result was impressive and both were deserving winners, but once again, the real star of the show was George Shea, the official Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Competition announcer. While his performance was slightly more subdued than previous years, he still managed to shine through. Take a look at the unfathomable display of passion he put into the 2014 event. Man nearly burst a blood vessel.
