2011 Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest Highlights @ Coney Island [VIDEO]
Joey “Jaws” Chestnut is once again the hot dog eating champ. He downed 62 dogs in 10 minutes at the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island.
But his arch rival Takeru Kobayashi doesn’t agree. He’s been banned from the event because of a contract dispute with Major League Eating, so he held his own event on the roof of a Manhattan bar. Kobayashi polished off 69 dogs in 10 minutes as teh Nathan’s contest played on the TV beside him.
Also, in a first for Nathan’s, a separate female contest was held with Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas inhaling 40 dogs in 10 minutes to beat the other female eaters. And she’s just a tiny little thing. Who knows where she puts it all.
