Record holder still hot dog eating champ

Posted by Melissa Greathouse

World record holder Joey "Jaws" Chestnut is still the top dog when it comes to hot dogs.

Chestnut claimed his second consecutive hot dog-eating title at Nathan's Famous Fourth of July contest on Coney Island.

Chestnut beat rival Takeru "The Tsunami" Kobayashi in a never-before-seen tie-breaker.

In the initial competition, both ate a record-setting 59 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

They had to break the tie in a "dog off," competing to see who could finish five hot dogs first.

Chestnut, a California native, quickly downed the dogs, beating out his Japanese rival.
