I wonder if he could beat Parekura in a pie eating competition?
Every year at Nathanâs 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 championÂ Joey Chestnut won his sixth straight Mustard Belt, downing 68 hot dogs and buns. Chestnut has won every contest at Nathanâs since 2007 and in 2009 set the world record with 68 hot dogs.
He tells theÂ APÂ that he was trying to break his world record but a bad minute halfway into the competition ruined his shot. âIâm a little bummed out that I didnât get to 70,â he said.
