Joey Chestnut Wins Nathan's Hotdog Contest And Puts Protestor In Headlock

Annual 4th Of July Hot Dog Eating Competition Held On Coney Island

NEW YORK, NY - JULY 04: Joey Chestnut sits with the trophy and belt after he won first place, eating 63 hot dogs in 10 minutes, during the 2022 Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4, 2022 at Coney Island in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

To no one's surprise, Joey won the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest AGAIN yesterday. During the contest, a protester from the animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere got a little too close, and Joey put him down pretty hard.

Joey won his 15th title in the last 16 years, but he "only" downed 63 wieners. That's way off his record of 76, but he was still 20 dogs ahead of his closest competitor.
