Chestnut shatters Kobayashi's hot-dog eating record

Posted: Saturday June 2, 2007 9:19PM; Updated: Saturday June 2, 2007 10:23PM

PHOENIX (AP) -- A California man smashed the world record for hot dog eating at a contest Saturday, gobbling up more than 59 franks in 12 minutes.

Joey Chestnut, 22, of San Jose, shattered the record held by Takeru Kobayashi of Japan by downing 59 1/2 "HBDs" -- hot dogs and buns -- during the Southwest Regional Hot Dog Eating Championship at the Arizona Mills Mall in suburban Tempe.

Kobayashi's old record of 53 3/4 was set last year at Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, held at Coney Island in New York, said George Costos, who helps runs the regional contests for Nathan's.

Chestnut, who also answers to the nickname "Jaws," placed second in last year's world championships, consuming 52 hot dogs.

"He's unbelievable -- he just keeps on going," said Ryan Nerz, who works for Major League Eating, which he describes as "a world governing board for all stomach-centric sports."

"These guys' numbers have just been going up at a tremendous clip," Nerz said. "I always thought there was a limit -- a limit to the human stomach and a limit to human willpower -- but I guess not."

Chestnut won a free trip to New York, a year's supply of hot dogs and a $250 gift card to the mall.

He flew to New York on Saturday night for a previously scheduled trip to throw out the first pitch Sunday at a game between the New York Mets and the Arizona Diamondbacks, Costos said.

Order is restored in the universe. Something just wasn't right about a Japanese guy being the hot dog eating record holder... !+)

That's going to be so awesome; this will be the best Nathan's Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Competition ever, especially with a true threat to Kobayashi's record.

It would be nice to see an American take back our crown of gluttony.


Also, does anyone disagree that Nathan's are the best hot dogs? Sure, Sabrett, Hebrew National and even Boar's Head make some great dogs, but you can't beat a Nathan's with spicy mustard and relish.

They should also invite that Alaskan grizzly bear that beat Kobayashi on that FOX Animals vs. Humans reality show to the Nathan's competition. ;-7

The ironic thing is the guy is likely to be a Giants fan, in reference to your thread title, ronin. :-b

I'm a Sabrett man myself. That onion sauce is like crack for me. Nathan's are awesome though.
