Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest: Joey Chestnut Upset In Bid For Ninth Title (Video)

The King has been dethroned.

Joey “Jaws” Chestnut was upset at the annual Fourth of July Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Saturday by 23-year-old Matt Stonie, who ate 62 hot dogs and buns en route to the win. Chestnut only managed 60 hot dogs and buns in the 10-minute competition.

Stonie had a message for America after his historic victory.

Stonie finished second at last year’s competition. The next-closest competitor ate 32 hot dogs and buns.

Chestnut’s previous record was 69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, which he accomplished in 2013.
