Joey Chestnut ate a ridiculous number of hot dogs in record-breaking performance

Joey Chestnut, professional eater of things, ate an astounding seven hot dogs per minute to snag the 100th Annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

After Matt Stonie ended Chestnut’s run atop the hot dog eating world (2007-14) last year, Chestnut blew his competition out of the water, eating 17 more than second-place Stonie.

Happy birthday, America!
