I watched the contest. All I can think of are three words.
Only. In. America.
ESPN ran the thing like it was a proper sporting event with stats and commentators calling the action.
Chestnut won once again. This time he ate seventy-two hot dogs. In ten minutes.
Yes, you read that right. In TEN MINUTES!
I struggle eating ONE, so cannot imagine how the competitors felt trying their best to eat the most in ten minutes.
