I wonder if he could beat Parekura in a pie eating competition?
Every year at Nathan’s Famous in Coney Island, competitive eaters race to see who can down the most hot dogs and buns in ten minutes. Tens of thousands of fans gather to watch the event live and ESPN broadcasts it on its network.
This year, reigning champion Joey Chestnut won his sixth straight Mustard Belt, downing 68 hot dogs and buns. Chestnut has won every contest at Nathan’s since 2007 and in 2009 set the world record with 68 hot dogs.
He tells the AP that he was trying to break his world record but a bad minute halfway into the competition ruined his shot. “I’m a little bummed out that I didn’t get to 70,” he said.
