Joey Chestnut downs 69 Nathan's hot dogs in 10 minutes. Good job, Joey, on your 7th straight title. Enjoy dessert.

How is that even anatomically possible? Does he look like a 9-month pregnant woman at the end?

No - look at the Google Images. He's a 'normal' looking guy!

During the broadcast on espn, they said he weighed in at 211 and by the time he finishes will be 8 pounds heavier.

They said the women's champ, Sonya Thomas, tipped the scales at 101 and put down 36 3/4 dogs in 10 minutes. She is 45 years old and lists her occupation as competitive eater.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162- ... -his-body/

"Last year Chestnut ate "only" 62 hot dogs and buns to win the competition.

The winner of the 2012 women's contest was 45-year-old Sonya the "Black Widow" Thomas, who took in 45 dogs to take home the pink champion's belt and $10,000.

Chestnut is more than 6 feet tall and weighs 210 pounds, and the 5-foot-5 Thomas barely weighed in at 100 pounds, the Associated Press reported.

While the annual competition is in good fun, many people wonder: What exactly are Chestnut and other competitors putting in their bodies during competition?

According to the Nathan's website, one of its natural casing hot dogs contains 290 calories (150 from fat), 17 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat and 710 milligrams of sodium. That means the 28-year-old Chestnut took in nearly 20,000 calories, more than 1,150 grams of fat, over 400 grams of saturated fat and a whopping 48,300 milligrams of sodium.

That certainly surpasses the government dietary guidelines for a 2,000-calorie per day diet which sets upper limits on 65 grams of fat, 20 or less grams of saturated fat and 2,400 milligrams of sodium.

The slender Thomas likely consumed over 13,000 calories, 765 grams of fat, 270 grams of saturated fat and nearly 32,000 milligrams of sodium, based on these numbers. "

Kobayashi and Chestnut are pikers!

How about a woman eating a 72-ounce (c2 kilos) steak in 2:44 (that's minutes and seconds, not hours and minutes!).

That actually sounds doable. That's just six 12-oz steaks at a rate of one steak per 27 seconds. Yeah, it's really smashing the beef down your throat, but I can almost see my 18-year-old self attempting something that foolish. The threat of choking seems to be the biggest problem.

If she farts, does that make the record wind-aided?

I watched that video in awe.. I don't think I could feed 72 oz of steak into a garbage disposer that fast...I don't think she was savoring the ambrosia of dead cow though..

Something interesting about these world-class competitive eaters: The best are thin and not fat. You'd think a big fat guy would win these competitions. Not so.

I dont recognize any eating records where the eater leaves the stage and projectile vomits off camera.

Igivup. Who did that? (Or do all of these professional eaters do that? I really have no idea.)

If you vomit before the end of the competition you are disqualified and the competitive eating term for is a "reversal of fortune"

Do you get bonus or demerit points if you drop dead during the competition?

I believe most of these places—even though it's not said loudly because of the sensitive nature of it—have a 30-minute rule. You have to keep it down for a half-hour after you're finished. No peacock feathers allowed here!

Wet blanket here.

I think eating contests are amongst the more disgusting forms of entertainment.

I really don't get it.

No doubt, she is the real deal. At the Wing Bowl she broke Kobayashi's record.

I have to admit, I am intrigued about a July 4 hot dog showdown with Chestnut.

So it is really a competition of : " who can hid the most food in situ for 30 minutes"
